B. Mus, Berklee College

Kat McLevey is a multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, and arranger from St. John's, NL. Kat's early musical life involved singing in choirs, taking classical piano lessons and playing french horn in school bands. In her teens, she gravitated towards guitar, electric bass, and mandolin, finding an avenue for songwriting and production. She quickly made a name for herself among Newfoundland and Labrador's gamut of prestigious songwriters with the release of her debut album Evergrown in 2015. With its characteristic alternate guitar tunings and twisting melodies, the record earned Kat Female Artist of the Year and Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2015 MusicNL Awards, as well as a nomination for Rising Star of the Year at the 2015 East Coast Music Awards.   After taking a gap year to write, perform, and record, Kat pursued a Bachelor of Music at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA studying electric bass, jazz composition, American roots music, and just about everything in between. After graduating in the summer of 2019, she hit the road with acclaimed songwriter Tim Baker on a tour across the US opening for Half Moon Run. Moving to Toronto on the heels of that tour, Kat has settled in well as a session musician, performer, arranger, and educator. She can be found performing and touring with the bands Zinnia and Donovan Woods & The Opposition.  As a teacher, Kat loves helping students connect with their creativity and engage with music in new ways. With training in both classical and jazz traditions, her teaching approach gives structure to her students' goals and interests. She couldn't be happier joining the team at CMC!
