Kat Hamilton is a West-coast, singer, songwriter and performer. Hamilton has had the career trajectory of a chameleon; lending her talents to pop-punk, emo, r&b, hip-hop, pop, and country.

Kat shares: “I wrote “Amnesia” to a person who I knew I would never see again, but needed to have closure with. I was just months away from recording my album “Recovery Songs” and a song called “Back into you” was sitting in the 7th track spot that “Amnesia” would soon be in. “Amnesia” came out of me in five minutes and I knew it was the one. I was finally standing in my own skin and shouting at this person “This is how you effected me and this is the damage you did”. I have my own issues expressing anger. I’m afraid i’ll come off as a bitch or crazy. This song is what happened when I couldn’t hold that anger in anymore. We all have people in our past who have broken our spirit, or made us feel less. “Amnesia” is the raging, tear-stained letter to mine.”

In 2017, Hamilton ended her five year run as the front woman of popular east-coast pop punkers, Manic Pixi. In 2018, the multiple SXSW performer, reemerged with her own vulnerable approach to Indie-Rock. Kat Hamilton’s debut e.p “The Grey Area” dropped on November 5th, 2018.
