Katie Thiroux
KATIE THIROUX “A multitasking talent who swings her bass with a Mack-truck-powered lilt that would make her hero Ray Brown proud, and who transforms her smallish voice into a thing of delight” (The New Yorker), Katie Thiroux has become a bold standard-bearer for the emerging generation of jazz singer/instrumentalists. She was a finalist in the 2015 Thelonious Monk International Vocals Competition, and her debut release as a bandleader from the same year, Introducing Katie Thiroux, received accolades from All About Jazz, The Huffington Post, the Jazz Journalists Association, and NPR Jazz, who listed the release among their Top 5 Debut Records of the Year. She was named “Rising Star” bassist in the 2018 and 2019 DownBeat Critics Poll, performed a three-month residency at Quincy Jones’ Dubai jazz club in 2017 and was recently appointed the director of “Women in Jazz” for the Monterey Jazz Festival. Thiroux’s newest album with her quartet, Off Beat, was produced by eminent drummer Jeff Hamilton and made DownBeat’s list of Best Albums of 2018.
