Kat Siciliano is a singer-songwriter and composer/lyricist based in Philadelphia, originally from East Brunswick, NJ. Her music ebbs and flows across genres, often falling somewhere between folk, jazz, pop, and musical theater. An avid reader, Kat’s love of stories and folktales greatly influences her writing. Her latest single, “From the Trees,” was released in December 2022, and tells the tale of an invented mythological love story through the eyes of a sentient forest.
In 2016, Kat released her first EP Stories and placed as a finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for her song “Ghost Be Quick.” Since then, she has had the incredible opportunity to write music for popular Philadelphia-area entertainment attractions, such as Adventure Aquarium and Eastern State Penitentiary’s Halloween Nights. She’s also been called to write for numerous popular jazz artists in the Philadelphia area, including Chelsea Reed and the Fair Weather Five (“Pastrami On Rye” and “Sun Comes Up”) and Calli Graver (“You Don’t Have to Try”). Kat is also a winner of the Write Out Loud Contest, and her song “Falling” can be found on the Write Out Loud Vol. 3 EP featuring Ciara Renée, additionally performed at 54 Below by Eleri Ward. Her EP Farewell Tour with her band Kat & the Hooligans was released in 2022.
Kat is currently working on solo material and a children’s album, both to be released in the coming year. Her downtime is spent reading, watching D&D campaigns, and hanging out with her incredibly cute corn snake, Varys.
