Born in Texas and raised in Louisiana, Kathy Walker came to Portland, Oregon via Atlanta, Georgia, where she worked with legendary Stax recording artist William Bell (whose songwriting credits include Born Under a Bad Sign and You Don't Miss Your Water). Kathy grew up listening to great soul singers such as Gladys Knight, Etta James and Al Green - influences that helped her develop her own unique voice.
A mother of three beautiful little girls, Kathy is often asked "how do you do it?" One listen, and you'll find the answer is "because she has no choice". Kathy didn't choose to be a singer, singing chose her.
