Upcoming Broadcasts

Kat Riggins was born Katriva Riggins in Miami, Florida on February 7, 1980. She grew up in a household where there was always background music. She was drawn to the smokey gritty sounds of Bessie Smith, Sam Cooke, Nina Simone, Tina Turner, Denise LaSalle, Etta James, Ray Charles, Koko Taylor, Janis Joplin and the list goes on. She sang in local programs, church events, and family gatherings with her sister and cousins. At 23, Kat landed a gig in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida with a piano player. Since then, she has performed throughout Florida, New Orleans, Vietnam, Thailand, China, South Korea, Curacao, Belgium and The Netherlands so far. Kat's style is a blend of the blues, hip hop, pop, rock, gospel, and country music. Her first two songs were Seoul Music and an original album Lily Rose. Her latest album, aptly named after her band Blues Revival is a loud and proud declaration of her love for the blues. It is a clever mashup of gospel-blues, blues-rock, funky blues, contemporary and traditional blues, with BLUES being the operative! With this and albums to come, Kat Riggins' goal is to be a part of the musical revolution to awaken the masses and introduce them to the sincerity behind blues music. "I thank God that my passion is my purpose. That is to help preserve this endangered species called The Blues." http://katriggins.com http://wijsf.org
