“My music ranges from emotionally explosive ballads to boom bap grooves to jazz centered Prometheans...all spilling from one place: the soul.” - Katarra
From serenading jazz lounges to championing beat battles, to empowering women at TedX St. Louis, Katarra Parson has performed in venues locally and across the nation.
This St. Louis native, singer-songwriter, musician, and producer brings a variety of talents and styles to the table, pulling audiences into her impassioned performances with vocals and keys that blend Soul, R&B, Jazz, Hip-Hop, amongst many genres.
From Tishaura Jones' Mayoral Inauguration, to playing receptions for Cori Bush's 2nd run for Congress, Katarra represents a creative force of ‘black girl magic’.
Whether solo or with her band inclusive of fellow St. Louis musicians, with raw sultriness, soulful runs and revival of the jazz scat style, Katarra is a musical revolution all wrapped up in one woman.
Dipping her toes in sounds of classical, jazz, hip-hop, and neo-soul music, Katarra takes us on a sonic journey that is classic yet modern. Prepare your ears and hearts, as 'Cocoa Voyage' is openly and passionately human.
