Enjoying a career that spans classical, jazz and folk music, award-winning single-reed player Katmuss prides herself in her ability to weave the threads of different genres and styles. Katmuss is a Royal Northern College of Music graduate, and specialises in bass clarinet, working to promote the instrument as a flexible solo instrument as opposed to an orchestral one. She has had a success as a player in theatrical productions (Theatre Alibi and Sound of Music Tour In Their Own Words), orchestras, rhythm and blues bands, salsa ensembles and big bands.
“I just love the way Eska is unafraid of drawing on all aspects of her musical personality; it’s not easy to ascribe a definitive label to her music and outlook. As such I feel I’ll fit in musically – and I’m looking forward to working with such an array of talented people to make something new!”
