The buzz on Kat’s upcoming Vested in Culture/Epic Records debut album, My Garden, set for release in summer 2014, has become deafening. Praised for her authenticity and unique style, the enthusiasm for Kat’s debut has gone viral, with a diverse mix of celebrities lending their voices to the tidal wave of support, including Ed Sheeran, who tweeted, simply: “Kat Dahlia. Amazing.” The media has been equally enthusiastic, with accolades pouring in from the New York Times, Billboard and People en Español, among others, and Kat will cover the winter 2014 edition of YRB Magazine‘s “Hottest Stars” and “What’s Up Next” issue.

Most importantly, though, the fans love Kat Dahlia! Her YouTube videos have scored nearly 13 million views, including more than 8.5 million VEVO views of the video for her breakthrough record “Gangsta.” Her recent track “Clocks,” produced by Salaam Remi, racked up more than 25,000 plays on Soundcloud within the first 24 hours of its release, and has ultimately logged more than 1 million plays. A galvanizing live performer who made her live television debut with an acoustic performance of “Gangsta” on BET’s 106 & Park, Kat Dahlia recently moved the crowd at the 2013 People en Español Festival in St. Antonio, Texas, where she rocked the mic in a lineup of Latin superstars that included Demi Lovato, Wisin y Yandel and 3BallMTY.

Incendiary, real and wholly original, Kat Dahlia’s connected with a passionate audience that understands and embraces who she is. “There’s no other way to stand out than just being myself,” says the rising Latin pop star. “I write my own music. People say my voice is very unique and I do this rappy thing that’s kind of different, but if you really want to break it down, I’m just being myself.”

Hailing from Miami, Kat Dahlia is a 23-year-old Cuban-American singer-songwriter who truly has a story to tell and you can feel her passion and honesty in her vocal tone. Kat has already been tapped by a plethora of hitmakers including DJ Khaled, where she’s featured on the record ‘Helen Keller’ from Suffering From Success and high in-demand producer, Mike WiLL Made It. She’s also been busy working on her full-length debut album, My Garden, with some of the hottest names in music, including Salaam Remi, Timbaland, Future, Missy Elliott, Rico Love, Stargate, Naughty Boy, Illangelo and Fraser T. Smith. My Garden is one of the most highly anticipated albums of 2014 and is scheduled to be released in summer 2014 by Vested in Culture/Epic Records.
