Kathryn Rose Wood is a New Orleans-based songwriter, guitarist, vocalist, and clinical music therapist by way of Oahu's shores and Pennsylvania's hills. With deeply personal, yet universal, stories and rich musical landscapes reflective of soul, folk, Americana, and RnB, it is evident that Kathryn prides herself on writing music that is sincere, creative, and nuanced.

Formerly of New Orleans bands Social Set and Gravy Flavored Kisses, Kathryn has been deemed one of "New Orleans most prominent young singer/songwriters" (The Vinyl District), and American Songwriter Magazine's pick as a songwriting "Daily Discovery." "Kathryn has this uncanny ability to capture complex, nuanced emotions in her songwriting, giving voice to things many people don't know how to vocalize," says collaborator Sage Rouge (saxophonist, Johnny Sketch & The Dirty Notes), and performs "with flickering, chromatic guitar chords, ornamented vocals, and plaintive steel guitar" (Offbeat Magazine).

Kathryn has played leading Louisiana music festivals including Gretna Heritage Music Festival, Freret Street Festival, T-Bois Blues Festival, and Bayou Boogaloo Festival, as well as nationally-renowned venues such as Tipitina’s, House of Blues, and the Green Parrot, among others. She curated and hosted the only weekly female-focused songwriter series in New Orleans, the Lilith in LOA Songwriter Series at the International House Hotel, from 2016-2017 and continues to play regularly throughout the Gulf Coast area.

Kathryn's music, including singles “Lullaby (To Preston)," “Big Steel Wings," and "Free" from the her debut solo album “In The Ashes," has been lauded across national and international media including American Songwriter Magazine, National Alliance on Mental Illness, To Write Love on Her Arms, Americana U.K., and a variety of New Orleans-based television and radio programming. With a mission to share empathy, inspiration, and respite through songwriting, Kathryn is poised to deliver healing through music, one note at a time.
