Katherine Martin is a self-taught sax player and multi-talented instrumentalist from North London.
As a fearless player with a gospel/pop tone, Katherine grew up singing in the church and discovered her love of jazz, neo-soul and pop in her early teenage years. This influenced her greatly and after hearing someone play the tenor saxophone in the most jazzy, but soulful way she decided to get one and taught herself. With Katherine’s instrumental influences spanning from Kirk Whalum, Bob Berg to Chet Baker and her natural talent she is an incredible musician.
