“A multitasking talent who swings her bass with a Mack-truck-powered lilt that would make her hero Ray Brown proud, and who transforms her smallish voice into a thing of delight” (The New Yorker), Katie Thiroux has become a bold standard-bearer for the emerging generation of jazz singer/instrumentalists.

Following her prodigious beginnings on bass at age 8 and studies under renowned vocalist Tierney Sutton at 12, Thiroux was mentored by the legendary bassist John Clayton and was awarded a Phil Ramone Presidential Scholarship to Berklee College of Music while gaining experience on the bandstand with Terrell Safford, Terri Lyne Carrington, Branford Marsalis, Jeff Clayton, Patti Austin, Geri Allen, Helen Sung, Charles McPherson, and dozens of others.

She was a finalist in the 2015 Thelonious Monk International Vocals Competition, and her debut release as a bandleader from the same year, Introducing Katie Thiroux, was listed by NPR Jazz among their Top 5 Debut Records of the Year. Her 2017 quartet release Off Beat made DownBeat’s list of Best Albums of 2017, and she was named “Rising Star” bassist in the 2018 DownBeat Critics Poll.

Thiroux’s newest album, Live From Caroga Lake, NY, features her working trio with pianist Glenn Zaelski and drummer Matt Witek.
