Few words about KATJA ŠULC:
A singer/songwriter from Ljubljana, Slovenia, who moves between jazz, poetry set to music to urban beats. Hypnotic, soulful vocalist delivering impressive and mesmerizing performance.
Katja studied music in Slovenia and abroad and was accepted to New School – Jazz & Contemporary music program in 2005. She reached wider audience with her debut album MILA (Sanje, 2008), a project that set to music the poetry of Slovene actress and poetess Mila Kačič in jazzy chanson flavor. The album received great reviews and reached festivals in Spain and Bosnia and Herzegowina.
Continuing the playful intertwine of music and poetry on her next project TWISTED DELIGHT, Katja this time explored her own poetic expression. She took part at New York poetry workshops and after returning home started setting poems to music. She found a perfect music match in DJ/producer Pier (RootsInSession), the mutual inspiring musical collaboration delivered a musically diverse style, reaching from hypnotic soul to r’n’b, dubstep and reggae roots. Following the success of first two single releases, I LOVE YOU YOU SCREAM (2010) and THERE WILL BE BOYS (2012), both accompanied by thrilling videos directed by Miha Knific, Katja toured Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegowina, Italy, Mexico. She released the album TWISTED DELIGHT in March 2013 (Celinka Records) and received a nomination for MTV Best Adria Act in Fall 2013.
She will be one of the performers on event called SLADICA LIVE on 13.6. @ SPUTNIK.
