Press Release (my translation : management is not responsible for this
Katou, in real life simply Kathleen van Campfort and 26 years young, has been
singing since she was 12 in her first band. Countless other bands have since followed.
After her studies in piano at the Lemmens-Institute in Leuven and the Antwerp
Conservatoire of Music, she decided to give a solo-career a go.
On her own she persuaded with her heavenly voice only accompanied by her piano,
the audiences at Les Voix Flamandes (De Media, Eeklo), as an opener for Thé Lau
and on other spots in Flanders. Even the prisoners in the Antwerp prison took
a breath to her music. Also the late Studio Brussel-programme Bassta discovered
Katou. Her demo made it as "Demo of the week" twice.
After this solo-period, Katou is is more than strong enough to try it with
a band again. She has collected a number of musicians to accompany her, and will
be touring with them from October to June 2000 in the within the framework of
Trappelend Talent (an initiative of the Federatie van de Vlaamse culturele centra)
in more than 20 locations in the country. Further plans include a second single
by the Autumn, a more up-tempo song on that occasion.
If there's someting relevant in the inevitable comparisons with Tori Amos and
other singing women, it's not so much the songs she writes (those are rock solid),
but her magnificent voice. Katou sings relaxed yet compassionate, it seems like
singing to her is like talking for people like you and I. Such a thing is called
talent. The songs are about frogs, and about mothers. Life itself.
