"Cry Out is a call to action,” says Kat Riggins.“It's no secret that as a country we don't practice what we preach.  America is still said to be one of the greatest nations in the world, but we ain't walkin' the walk. In writing it's, ‘The land of the free’ and ‘All men are created equal,’ when in actuality we still fear our differences, slight though they may be in comparison to all that we have in common! That fear turns to hate...the hate into greed or even violence. If you recognize the fact that the doctrines we've written and the principles that we live by are in complete contradiction to each other, this is your time to cry out. Don't be afraid to CRY OUT!”

“Not unreconstructed but not modern just for the sake of it…The spiritual granddaughter of Koko Taylor and southern blues show bands, Riggins has the stone cold knack for hitting it out of the park that would make all the blues greats before her quite proud.”- Midwest Records

Inspired by the variety and abundance of music in her parents’ collection, it makes sense that her own music is peppered with hints of R&B, soul, country, gospel, hip-hop, and rock-n-roll. Make no mistake, however, Kat Riggins is undeniably a BLUES WOMAN! She travels the world with the sole mission of keeping the blues alive and thriving through her Blues Revival Movement.

What is a “Blues Revival” anyway? According to Kat, it is a musical revolution that aims to awaken the masses and introduce them to the sincerity behind blues music. “It’s about the raw emotion in every note”, exclaims Kat Riggins as she attempts to describe her love of the genre. Backed by a dynamic band, Kat invokes said emotion through high energy soul shakers as well as heart breaking ballads. During a meet and greet after a sold out show in Belgium, a fan once jokingly asked Kat if ever there was a time she “phoned it in” to avoid ending up exhausted, sweaty and bruised from the tambourine… “If I can move someone to feel what I feel when I sing a song, then it's all worth it", said the Miami born singer-songwriter.

"I thank God that my passion is my purpose... That is to help preserve this endangered species called The Blues." - Kat Riggins


Kat Riggins was born Katriva Tabitha Riggins in Miami, Florida on February 7, 1980. She grew up in a household where there was always background music. Because of the wide range of genres in her parents’ collection, Kat developed a love for all types of music from gospel and soul to country and rock and everything in between. "I can remember being in the car with my mom and sister singing along to Tracy Chapman one minute and Chuck Berry the next", says Kat. However, even then, she was drawn to the smoky gritty sounds of artists like Bessie Smith, Sam Cooke, Nina Simone, Tina Turner, Denise LaSalle, Etta James, Ray Charles, Koko Taylor, Janis Joplin and the list goes on. She grew up singing in local programs, church events, and family gatherings with her sister and cousins.
At age 23 Kat landed a gig singing jazz and blues standards in a small lounge in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida with the accompaniment of only a piano player. In 2011 Kat set out on an Asian and Middle Eastern tour with a top 40 cover band. Fast forward through a decade of paying dues and now Kat shares her own original music with audiences all over the U.S. and Europe!
Kat's own musical style is a blend of the blues with hip hop, pop, rock and even country music as all of these genres have inspired her love for music in general. "It's all related anyway and the blues is where it was all born ", she exclaims. “It's about the raw emotion in every note", Kat says. “If I can move someone to feel what I feel when I sing a song, then it's all worth it". With her Blues Revival Movement, she travels the world with the intent to "breathe new life into the blues one song at a time"!
