Katherine Traut - singer, songwriter

Katherine Traut. Singer, songwriter, recording artist and live performer, shares her love for music through her unique sound and interesting lyrics.

Her writing started many years ago when poetry was one of the ways through which she expressed herself. Not too long after finding her way with words, she pursued guitar so that she could find a suitable rhythm to fit her words of passion.

As a young girl, at the tender age of five, she performed her first solo performance singing for her entire school and from that moment, she knew that live performance was her greatest passion. Coming from a background where following her dreams was always encouraged, Katherine quickly discovered that whatever she put her mind to, she could accomplish with great success.

She has performed with the likes of Byron Clarke and Chad Saaiman from Stereo Type Records, Franki M, Micaelyn Traut and most recently shared the stage with EJ Von Lyrik who has been a part of SA’s all female Hip Hop group, Godessa. Ej as a solo artist has performed internationally with many top musicians from around the globe and is hitting Cape Town by storm.

Currently, Katherine has released her first single, “Sweetest Surrender,” which she composed and which features some of her guitar skills. Produced by Moeneeb Galant, the song is being played on Cape Town’s Heart 104.9fm and has reached the No. 2 spot on the SA TOP 10 chart.

She is working on a number of songs with various producers from Cape Town and is aiming to produce an album within the next year.
At every performance, whether it is big or small, Katherine strives to send a message of love and hope and plays with such passion that you’d always want more. She is determined to make a success of her passion by believing it’s possible and showing others that they can achieve their dreams!
