Singer and Musician from Aotearoa, New Zealand.

Kia ora and welcome to KathrynHopkins.com.  I am a singer and musician from a family of well known musicians in New Zealand. I grew up surrounded by jazz and moved to Los Angeles in 2014 where I now reside.

My father Tony Hopkins, was a drummer and he always said you could be technically good but it doesn’t mean anything if it doesn’t have a good feel.  That’s always stuck with me.

My roots are in jazz and I perform with small ensembles up to 18 piece big bands, with a mix of jazz, swing, latin jazz and blues and pop/funk.

“Regardless of what you play, the biggest thing is keeping the feel going”, Wes Montgomery.
