Originally inspired by Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan, stylish UK-based singer Kitty La Roar's unique talents are not just as silky voiced songstress, scat-singer and drummer: she has a spellbinding ability to freestyle lyrics to melody on the spot, telling stories that are not only relevant to the song she is singing, but often weaving in references to life, love, nature, politics, current events, and even to people in the audience. 

Although the genre is clearly jazz, this unpredictable and eclectic music will muddy the boundaries of genre and entrance and engage the audience.
