With her recent recording, Off Beat, Katie Thiroux — a “first-rate bassist and beguiling singer” (NEW YORKER) — proves that all the critical attention for her debut album and subsequent live appearances was well earned. Thiroux has conjured up a dream project that certifies the well-being of exceptionally crafted mainstream jazz by mixing swinging
standards with sly interpretations of overlooked gems from the catalogues of June Christy, Peggy Lee, Benny Carter, Frank Sinatra, and more.

A triple threat talent from Los Angeles, Katie Thiroux has garnered considerable attention for her bravura bass playing, assured singing and compelling compositions. Her debut album, Introducing Katie Thiroux (2015), received international acclaim including "Debut Record of the Year" from the Huffington Post, All About Jazz, Jazz Journalists Association and "Top 5 Debut Records of the Year" from NPR Jazz Critics Poll. Lending contemporary flair to mainstream stylings, Thiroux carries on the hard swinging tradition of such bass masters as Ray Brown and John Clayton, while channeling the buoyant vocal finesse of iconic singers including Anita O'Day, Chet Baker and Ella Fitzgerald. Thiroux offers in-the-moment jazz that draws upon the rich history of the music, from swing to bebop and beyond.

Recent performances with her quartet include sold out concerts at the Blue Note, Birdland, Upstairs Jazz (Montreal) and the San Jose Summer Jazz Fest. In May 2017 Thiroux paid tribute to Ella Fitzgerald at the Grammy Museum at the request of the GRAMMY Foundation.
