Bassist/vocalist Katie Thiroux Trio from Los Angeles

Bassist/vocalist Katie Thiroux Trio from Los Angeles

“Thiroux’s timbres are so warm and rich and her style is so aurally pleasing.” (AXS)

“The skyrocketing young star is an enchanting singer, a poised and polished acoustic bassist, and an accomplished composer.” (The Boston Globe)


Thiroux’s unique gift of simultaneously balancing sultry vocals and virtuosic bass playing leaves audiences worldwide in awe. Awarded “Best Album of 2017” by Downbeat Magazine. Katie carries on the hard swinging tradition of such bass masters as Ray Brown and John Clayton, while channelling the buoyant vocal finesse of iconic singers including Anita O’Day, Chet Baker and Ella Fitzgerald. In the words of music icon Quincy Jones, “This girl is IT!”

“This bassist-vocalist-composer is flat out phenomenal.” – All About Jazz


Extended bio arrow

Based in New York City and Los Angeles, triple threat talent KATIE THIROUZ has garnered international attention for her bravura bass playing, assured singing and compelling compositions. Her most recent album, “Off Beat”, from Grammy nominated label, Capri Records, collected rave reviews and was awarded a “Best Album of 2017” by Downbeat Magazine. This followed her 2015 awards for Debut Record of the Year and being a semi-finalist in the Thelonious Monk Competition.

With a long list of accolades that looks like a seasoned veteran, the 30 year old artist is full steam ahead with a busy international touring schedule and new projects in the works. Lending contemporary flair to mainstream stylings, Thiroux offers in-the-moment jazz that draws upon the rich history of the music, from swing to bebop and beyond.

JUSTIN KAUFLIN is an award-winning American jazz pianist, composer, producer, educator and Quincy Jones Artist.  He performs worldwide as solo artist or with his trio, recorded on 26 albums as sideman, composed the film score for “Keep On Keepin On”, published 29 original compositions and produced 5 albums as leader.

Make sure you have enough time to absorb all the beautiful things in Justin’s talent… his timing, rhythm, technique and exactness. See if you’ll agree with me… He’s a monster on the piano! And, one of the greatest people I know.
- Clark Terry
