Biography

There is more than one artist/band named KGB.

1. American hip hop group from 90s affiliated with the Wu-Tang Clan, releasing, among others, the LP “Freek Tha Flo” in 1994. Members: Asiatic, Kurtis Burton, Raheem.

2. A classically trained pianist who remains one of the youngest vocal soloists ever to perform with the Russian Philharmonic, New York-based newcomer KGB has a pop music style as unique as her background.

Ten years old at the time of her highly publicized performance with the Russian Philharmonic, the St. Petersburg native, who is now sponsored by the Baldwin piano company, came to America shortly thereafter. She has studied music on her own ever since, absorbing along the way influences ranging from Madonna to Pink, Niki Manaj and Cindy Lauper, all of whom, incidentally,have been mentioned among artists whom KGB evokes. Indeed, renowned producer David Kahne was so impressed by Katia’s talent that he offered to produce a record for her in between recording projects for Paul McCartney and Sting.

But KGB has attracted other noteworthy collaborators as well for her debut EP, which is titled “Madhouse.” Steve Greenwell, notorious for his work with Joss Stone, Vic Flowers, a producer and musician whose credits include Jay-Z and Alicia Keys, Young Yonny who produced the Trey Songz smash Say Ah, Omen, Cutt, Brass Knuckles, Wizz and Timbaland productions and Kojak whose credits include Miranda Cosgrove and Flor Rida have all added on the production side.
