Katarra is art in it's most expressive form: Music. A St. Louis native, singer/song-writer, musician, composer, and creator, Katarra is the musical idealist, allowing her creations go into the ups and downs of loving and living, passion and pain, self-reflection, and a need to bring self-awareness and change in the world.
From arranging soul-bearing ballads, to cascading the keys of a piano, Katarra creates a world for escapists and realists, for hopeless romantics, and those who appreciate music's magical properties.
Katarra takes Jazz, Soul, and R&B (with Hip-Hop influence) as her own. With the scats of Ella Fitzgerald, and the sultriness of Sarah Vaughan, Katarra merges classic jazz with the soul of Lauryn Hill and the keys of Stevie Wonder...all within her own universe of black girl magic. Let her music be your guide to another galaxy...
Creative Pursuits and Collabs
Katarra's love of the arts is displayed through her creative endeavors and voluntary actions. As newly signed Farfetched artist, Katarra works with figure heads such as Damon Davis in creating music for her community, as well as for social justice movements (Dream Defenders, C2, Black Workers Center).
And as a musician of 'Lyrical Therapy' and member of the artist collective 'The Therapeutics', Katarra helps use music as a platform for voices within the community that are rarely heard. As Lyrical Therapy was where she overcame years of anxiety, and blossomed as an artist, one of Katarra's pursuits include collaborating and creating with other young artists. This includes, 'The Owen Ragland Quintet' and 'The SolFolkz', as well as many collaborations with many other Saint Louis artists.
