Hi, I'm Kat. I've been playing bass for the last 15 years. That's me in the picture there with my beautiful Lakland Bass that I bought on Sunset Boulevard and has been my workhorse for every gig I've done since then!
My style of performance is whatever the music requires - I can be animated and rock-chick or laid back and be a groove-queen. I have played all styles of music but excel in pop and rock (please see my media page for examples of my live performance). I can double up on backing vocals and also play synth bass and play basic synth parts if the band needs it.
I love performing live (Tricky, Roxanne Emery, Soom T, Bassboosa, Aaron Delahunty, J'Danna, Brooke, McQueen, Lydia Bayliss) in the studio (Tricky, Johnny Ashby) or even playback performances during shows like the X-Factor, Strictly Come Dancing and CBeebies. My gigs have even seen me in the theatre (SIX (UK Tour Company), As You Like It (National Theatre), The Sandman (Brit School) WASTED! (Southwark Playhouse), Les Enfants Terribles, Holoray Holiday, Jet Set Go, The Great British Soap Opera, All Bobs Women). Touring is my passion, I love to travel and have performed all over the world with Tricky (2008-2014), which saw me in places like Outer Mongolia, Japan and the US!
I also do a lot of function work and have a full repertoire from the 60's through to 00's - I currently play for many function bands in London (S.H.E., Hits Like A Girl, The Hoops, The Daisy Chains) and am available at short notice for dep gigs.
I am a proud endorser of Lakland Guitars (http://www.lakland.com/kat-bax.htm), Elixir Strings and Ashdown Amps.
