Katie Kern

 

Katie Kern was born in Vienna in 1973.
Her parents, both art teachers, sensed the musical talent in little Katie and gave her extensive classical piano lessons.Her dad, an accomplished piano player taught her improvisational skills and some singing techniques.
Right at the time of her highschool graduation Katie picked up the guitar and turned her back on classical music. She managed to teach herself by copying music from Beatles records, and in 1994 she had a life changing experience- her encounter with the Blues.

By coincidence, watching the Ry Cooder movie “Crossroads”, she became infatuated with historic Blues, especially the outstanding music of Robert Johnson. To learn how to play guitar solos she listened to the CD of B.B.King “Live in Cook County Jail” and strong influences were Bonnie Raitt and Mississippi John Hurt. In Vienna she learned a lot about both – Chicago and Country Blues - from Austrian Blues Stars like Al Cook, Siggi Fassl and Hannes Kasehs.

She started playing live in 1998 when she led the “Monday Blues Sessions” at the Club “Papas Tapas” in Vienna, where she played with famous musicians like Oskar Klein, who fancied her guitar picking and expressive vocals and introduced her to the European Jazz and Blues community.

She fell in love with Viennese guitar god Peter Kern; they even got married for a short time. Early in 1999 producer and owner of the renowned Austrian Blues label WOLF Records offered Katie an opportunity to record a session at the Viennese Club “Bluesman Café” featuring special guest Peter Kern on some of the tunes. He was surprised that a young Lady like Katie could sing so strongly and play great guitar licks like she does!

Katie´s originals, exclusive to this special record, mostly tell the story of her marriage and her early experiences as a working live musician gradually becoming part of the Blues community.

Listen to Katie, she has Blues in her blood!!
