French soundsmith KAT CROSS brings her live show ‘KAT CROSS & TALKATIVE’ to CRAWDADDY on Wednesday 24th February.

Among her fans is trip-hop master Tricky, who selected one of her songs ‘Symphony for irony’ for his -Back to Mine’ compilation, where Kat was featured alongside musical icons Kate Bush, Gregory Isaac, The Cure, Dr John, and Chet Baker.

Kat Cross & Talkative is to include an experimental visual show entitled -La trajectoire des immobiles’, by visual performance artist Natasha Kail. Support will come from Dublin-based brother and sister duo Holy Roman Army.

Tickets €12.50 available from Ticketmaster, City Discs, Road Records and usual outlets.

Classically trained Kat Cross transcends many genres of music with her unique style. Though fed on a diet of classical music, Kat delves into the world of rock, punk, pop, before making a detour into more experimental music.

For Kat Cross, music is like craftwork, where sounds replace materials, and show their infinite possibilities for assembly. Kat Cross is where electro and acoustic meet, where classical and pop join hands. Her musical diversity brought her to the attention of platinum selling -Tricky’, who upon discovering Kat, selected one of her songs ‘Symphony for irony’ for his -Back to Mine’ compilation where Kat was featured alongside music icons – , Kate Bush, Gregory Isaac, The Cure, Dr John and Chet Baker.

With a critically acclaimed first album -Work In Progress’ under her belt (distributed by Believe Digital), her second album -Déjà Vu’ is set for release in spring 2010. During recording, Kat made some interesting connections. The songs are ethereal, ambient, emotional and defined. When performed live, these compositions find some intriguing alterations and a sometimes radical new direction to the originals, which highlight Kat’s fearlessness of risk.

The live show featuring her band -Kat Cross and Talkative’ also includes an experimental visual show called -La trajectoire des immobiles’.
