With Billboard Magazine listing her as one of their top 25, in their Next Big Sound feature, Kat Dahlia is one to watch!
The Miami bred Cuban/American’s combination of hustle and infectious vocals is the reason why music industry veteran Sylvia Rhone swiftly signed Kat to her Vested in Culture label with Epic Records the very first time she heard her demos.
Her first single Gangsta is at 4.9 million views on YouTube and her hotly anticipated debut album, My Garden is scheduled for release this fall.
Dahlia’s musical style has been described as being “razor sharp” lyrics and her unique, aggressive flow, with influences from Frank Sinatra to Reggae’s King Bob Marley.
