Home for the Holidays – A Kat Perkins Christmas
December 23, 2016
Lyric Arts is pleased to bring Kat Perkins to the Main Street Stage for a holiday show comprised of family favorites and seasonal standards that is sure to entertain fans of all ages!
Growing up the daughter of a music teacher, Kat Perkins has been singing, dancing, and performing for just about as long as she can remember. At just 15 years old, Perkins made the move to the Twin Cities from rural North Dakota and her professional career began as she became a success in the Minneapolis-St. Paul theatre scene!
Over the years, Perkins has performed and recorded music as a solo artist and with numerous bands. In 2012, she had success with a single written by Chad Kroeger (Nickelback) that featured Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal, Nine Inch Nails drummer Ilan Rubin, Grammy-nominated producer Joe Marlett (Foo Fighters, Korn) and her current musical director Eric Warner.
In 2013, she received an opportunity to go to the Middle East to perform for the military. While on the trip, a video of her singing randomly at the Amsterdam airport ended up on Youtube and prompted a call from NBC’s The Voice. She quickly found herself in the national spotlight as a Top 5 contestant coached by Adam Levine (of Maroon 5)! “Fearless” marks her debut solo release. The song was produced by John Fields (Pink, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez) and independently hit #5 upon release on the iTunes charts
