HARPIST. SINGER-SONGWRITER. COMPOSER.
“Beautifully performed and well-written music” - Ourculturemag.com
“Incredible artists have for years crafted brilliant works around their own emotional reckonings, but Katherine Redlus goes above and beyond in her new song ‘Welcome Home.’ A vulnerable and ethereal sonic embrace, Redlus’ “Welcome Home” wraps listeners in waves of self-love and belonging as the emerging artist unravels her own spiritual and emotional journey.” - Mitch Mosk, Atwood Magazine.
Katherine Redlus is a classically trained musician turned singer-songwriter. She just completed recording for her first solo album BRUTAL WALTZ for harp, voice, and electronics - scheduled to be released in later this year. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the project was recorded earlier this year and will have a special pre-release for Kickstarter backers in August 2018. The project is an exercise in pushing the boundaries of avant-garde pop and building songs with harp and synthesized/noise sounds only - finding ways to filter the harp to sound like a variety of different things.
She graduated in 2016 with her M.M. in Harp Performance from the University of Southern California, where she studied with JoAnn Turovsky. Previously, she graduated in 2011 with a B.M. in Harp Performance and a minor in Entertainment, Media & Technology from New York University, where she studied with her long time teacher and mentor, Rita Costanzi. While still at NYU, she began studying acting at the Stella Adler Studio in NYC. Upon graduating, she took a brief hiatus from music in order to study acting in the full-time conservatory program at The William Esper Studio, which she graduated from in June of 2013. Since moving to Los Angeles in 2014, she began delving into more new and avant-garde music. In 2015, she performed on harp with Four Larks in their imaginative and award winning production, The Temptation of St. Antony. The production had a second extended run in the fall of 2016, due to audience demand. In Fall of 2017, she returned to play in the Four Larks production of Undine.
