Katie Ernst

"A great bassist, composer, and lyricist, she has an uncanny ability to mix traditions... following her voice is like reading a great novel." - Jason Moran, Artistic Director for Jazz at the Kennedy Center Katie Ernst has been described by the Chicago Tribune as "a versatile young bassist who plays in far-flung bands and sings with uncommon delicacy and authenticity." Her recent compositions are inspired by the poetry of American writer Dorothy Parker. Her complete Dorothy Parker project Little Words was released on Feb 10, 2015, and is currently available on BandCamp. As both a bassist and vocalist, Katie has performed at the Chicago Jazz Festival, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Hyde Park Jazz Festival, and Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival, among others
