Soul singer Katie Leone’s exciting and dynamic performances have established her as one of the circuit’s most in demand vocalists, as proven by the long list of musical icons she has shared stage and studio with – Elvis Costello, Tony Hadley , ABC, Visage, T'Pau and Go West – as well as a tour with Lou Reed, and support for KT Tunstall and Sister Sledge on theirs. Other legends just line-up to hear her sing – praised by Jimmy Page for her take on a Led Zeppelin track, and by Brian May from Queen (“we just couldn’t stop talking about her performance”).
Whilst Katie Leone works as a busy professional singer in the music industry, her original project is soul based with a hint of jazz. Alongside her impressive rock and pop CV, she has spent recent years building up work in the soul arena including backing vocals for Jocelyn Brown, Leon Ware, Jean Carne, Sheree Brown and UK producer Soulpersona. She has also appeared at Hideaway with one of our most popular regular bands, Soul Purpose.
Currently recording her debut album (soon to be released on the Digisoul label), her exciting and dynamic band of musicians features Carl Hudson on keys (Professor Green, Mornington Lockett), Nat Martin on guitar (Thomas Dolby, Nat Martin band), Mat Hector on drums (Thomas Dolby, Gilad Atzmon) and Marco Meniconi on bass (Paul Etterlin). She is also lucky enough to be joined by two amazing backing vocalists Jono Mcneil ( Nelly, Jocelyn Brown) and Keisher Downie (Soul to Soul).
"She can sing her tail off!" Jocelyn Brown
"I can honestly say that Katie Leone is one of the best singers I have ever heard. Passion, emotion, phrasing, you got it locked down soul sistah!" Soulpersona
