Katalin Kiss is well-known in the Canadian music industry for her evocative and staggeringly beautiful voice. As a singer, she is capable of interpreting almost any musical style and in her career has worked with many legends, including Del Shannon, Chubby Checker, Chuck Berry, Herbie Hancock and Chaka Khan. She grew up singing jazz and soul music and will perform some of her favourites on October 13 in Elora. Katalin lives on Amherst Island, where she writes and records with her husband, John McKinney. They run a recording studio called Tarpit Sound and host a radio show called Tales from the Tarpit, where they feature music from independent Canadian artists.
