Singing has been her chosen means of expression ever since her early schooling at Adolf Fredrik´s Music School in Stockholm. Although she took a glance at the piano and the cello, singing remained the main focus through her training at the Stockholm Royal Academy of Music. During the 1990´s she was active as studio and backing vocalist in the fields of pop and soul. Since 1984, as one of the founding members of The Real Group, Katarina has contributed to the group with her flexible alto voice and distinctive stage presence as well as with numerous compositions.
Katarina composes and writes lyrics with jazz and folk music forming the starting point of her music-making. Her vocal style is direct and artless and her singing has been described as ”soul – madrigal”. Together with The Real Group she has performed thousands of concerts all over the world and her voice can be heard on more than 20 of the group´s cd´s. As a workshop-leader with models for choirs and vocal ensembles her experience is as vast as the artistic career. Since leaving the group in 2016 her energy is divided between the continuing career as a singer as well as towards developing The Real Group Academy.
Katarina has always been drawn to the jazzy side of music and nourished an interest in improvisation and since 2013 together with members of Rajaton, Vox North and Zap Mama Katarina is part of the A Cappella improvisation group Songs of The Moment North.
The directness of the human voice has always been an important theme that Katarina has been exploring. With Songs of The Moment Nordic and in a workshop format she calls Voicefulness she has a platform for this theme to evolve even more.
