Inspired by the variety and abundance of music in her parents’ collection, it makes sense that Kat’s own music is peppered with hints of R&B, soul, country, gospel, hip-hop, and rock-n-roll. Make no mistake; however, Kat Riggins is undeniably a BLUES WOMAN! She travels the world with the sole mission of keeping the blues alive and thriving through her Blues Revival Movement.
She has been vocally compared to Koko Taylor, Etta James and Tina Turner to name a few. While obviously influenced by those icons, Mrs. Riggins has a voice and delivery all her own. Full of power, rasp and grit she can belt out one of her contemporary blues originals one minute, then deliver a tender, sultry standard the next. She does this all while making each person in her audience feel as if she is speaking directly to them. Blues Revivals are interactive and personal no matter how large the crowd. This intimacy is what makes every Blues Revival a memorable experience…not only for the audience, but also for Kat.

“With incendiary guitar chops and raw, powerful vocals, fiery Texas blues rocker Carolyn Wonderland draws instant comparisons to fellow Texans Stevie Ray Vaughan and Janis Joplin.” —NPR Music
On Tempting Fate, Wonderland delivers ten riveting songs, including five fiery originals (and one co-written with her Mayall bandmate Greg Rzab). The ex-lead guitarist in John Mayall’s Blues Breakers delivers an exuberant and astonishing collection of songs, deeply rooted, yet fired by a rocker’s sensibility. The tracks pit brilliant originals with revelatory versions of songs by Bob Dylan, Grateful Dead, John Mayall and Billy Joe Shaver, with sparks flying from Wonderland’s guitar and the undeniable soul in her voice.
“I can’t wait to share the new album,” says Wonderland. “I got to record a dream list of songs and play with a dream list of people. And Dave (producer Dave Alvin) really got me to kick the doors in.”
