NBC’s The Voice Season 6 top 5 contestant Kat Perkins has just released her new single “Fearless”. The single was produced by John Fields (Pink, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez) and independently hit #5 upon release on the iTunes charts.
From rural North Dakota, Perkins moved to the Twin Cities at the age of 15 and quickly became a success in the Minneapolis-St. Paul theatre scene. Over the years, Perkins has performed and recorded music as a solo artist and with numerous bands. In 2012, she had success with a single written by Chad Kroeger (Nickelback) that featured Guns N’ Roses guitars Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal, Nine Inch Nails drummer Ilan Rubin, Grammy-nominated producer Joe Marlett (Foo Fighters, Korn) and her current musical director Eric Warner. Soon after, Perkins was forced into an early retirement due to voice problems. She underwent vocal surgery and became a full time nanny. In 2013, she received an opportunity to go to the Middle East to perform for the military. While on the trip, a video of her singing randomly at the Amsterdam airport ended up on Youtube and prompted a call from The Voice. She joined Adam Levine’s team and captivated the hearts of millions across the country. “Fearless” marks her debut solo release.
Kat Perkins new EP entitled “Fearless” will be available on September 26th, 2014.
