Testimonials

Kathryn was a fantastic addition to an event that I recently attended. She wowed the audience not only with her voice, but also with her sense of humour - she totally captivated them. Kathryn's choice of songs were perfect for the occasion. In short, I thought she was amazing and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a true professional.

When my daughter told me that she had a colleague singing classical music in church and entertaining at the reception for her wedding I was hesitant. Can one pull it off I wondered?

To my surprise and delight I found that Kathryn Buck can and did with style, grace and elegance. Classically trained Kathryn made us weep in church and sing and dance at the reception. Ever the professional Kathryn took all music genres in her stride and helped make a wonderful day perfect. I would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone looking for 1st class entertainment.

I've thrilled to her interpretations of songs from the shows... I've admired her sensitive recordings of operatic roles... and have been immensely moved by her performances of sacred music. Kathryn's charm, versatility and rare talent will enhance your special occasion both on the day and in your memory bank for years to come.

Kathryn's voice is truly amazing. She can sing classical and operatic songs with such clarity and passion it gives me goose bumps. She is equally at home with modern music, covering blues, pop, and stage musicals. She is always pitch perfect and no matter what she sings, she sings from the heart.

I have heard Kathryn sing on several occasions including at my daughter's wedding. In my experience I have found her voice to have a wonderful quality combining an unforced purity as well as being truly melodious. There have been occasions when her voice has almost moved me to tears.

When Kathryn sang Ave Maria the hairs stood up on the back of my neck, we were both stopped in our tracks!

I have worked with Kathryn over the last ten years, and she has always been a pleasure to work with. She has such a wide ranging repertoire, with a voice to match. Kathryn is at home with Handel`s Messiah or Gershwin`s Porgy and Bess, such is her ability and charm.

blues

 I have been associated with Kate's singing ability as a musician in her blues-rock band. Kate's voice is classically trained which gives her a tremendous vocal range. The beauty of her voice is it's versatility. This makes her a tremendous blues singer with a touch of 1920's style as well. I have not discovered a musical style that she cannot sing with great aplomb.

I’ve played for Kathryn for quite a while now and must say I enjoy accompanying a singer who puts so much effort and feeling into her performances – it’s a delight to work with her.
Peter Wilson, Accompanist

singer, organiser

Kathryn has been a friend for many years and can honestly say I was amazed and blown away the first time I heard her sing. Kathryn has a powerful, beautiful voice and she is more than capable of singing both classical and more modern songs. Kathryn is not only a very good singer but is also a very reliable and capable organiser. She successfully arranged a concert at her place of work, co-ordinating approx 15 other performers and putting together the itinerary for the evening. She takes pride in whatever she does and will always go that extra mile.

pop, rock

Kathryn and I have worked together over the last ten years. I was her teacher (very briefly) and also a fellow performer. We have often sung duets together - both for recordings and live performances. She is a great singer with a formidable range, both in genre and vocally. She finds it as easy to sing light classics as pop and rock and has a truly beautiful voice. I have worked in the music business for over 40 years, both as a performer and a vocal coach and I couldn't recommend anyone more highly.

jazz

I have been performing with Kathryn for about five years now in small concert parties. Her musical repertoire covers opera, sacred, show, popular song and particularly jazz. Her vocal range is impressive, and her voice is beautifully clear with little vibrato. She learns at speed and is happy to be challenged by all forms of music! It is a real pleasure to work with someone who clearly thoroughly enjoys her art! I can highly recommend her as a wedding soloist.

classical music, jazz, blues, pop, rock

Kathryn breathes life into the songs, whatever the genre. Such a voice - such a passion for singing - such expression of the song - all beautifully blended for an unforgettable listening experience. It is always a very special pleasure to hear Kathryn sing. Magical.
