Kass was born in New Orleans and influenced by a rich musical culture; as a vocalist, she often accompanies herself on upright bass, guitar, or djembe. She studied voice at Loyola University and has performed countless times for festivals (Three Rivers, Spring for Art, Fall for Art), house concerts, clubs (Snug Harbor, Three Muses, Live Oak Cafe), special events (Abita Springs Opry, Pedal Steel conventions in St. Louis and Gulfport), and private engagements. Although she has a soft spot for singing jazz standards, you’ll find her singing Joni Mitchell, Bonnie Raitt, Emmy Lou Harris or songs written by musicians in her own community.
