COOL POP! LIVE – here is my new mini-album!

Dear everybody, that we had to cancel our release concert was kind of a shock. As it looks now it also won’t be possible to play in May… but post offices are still working… You can order my COOL POP! LIVE mini album right now directly from me! It includes a handmade original mini artwork and costs € 20,- (mailing expenses included). Every sold album is helpful in situations like these. I thank you for your orders! Warmly, Katja

Dear everybody, my 3rd live video just went online:
It is a wild and pleasurable song and dance of liberation, full of relish: “no more chains, no more jails, I live my own power now… I got your knife in my hands, now I’m free and unbound, and I dance my own dance, and I’ve found my own sound…”.

Thanks to my great duo partner Ernesto Grieshofer who made the final arrangement of this tune.
Thanks also to Roland Trillsam for the beautiful editing, to Florian Krusche for the live recording, to Boris Schnelzer for his mix, and to Chris Hall for the mastering.

*COOL POP! LIVE* cd release concert at ORPHEUM extra, March 11.

„Cool Pop“

Cool sind Katjas Popsongs in diesem neuen Format. Es groovt von hauchzart bis wild, von entspannter Leichtfüßigkeit bis zu sprühendem Temperament. Dabei entführt sie einen auch mal auf einen heißen Spaziergang durch New York. Dort gastierte die Grazer Sängerin schon einige Male und wurde vom Magazin „The New York City Jazz Record“ auch mehrfach ausgezeichnet. Ernesto Grieshofer am Schlagzeug ist ihr ein kongenialer Duo-Partner mit hochenergetischer Lebendigkeit und mitreißender Rhythmik. Weltklasse-Songs, herrlich erfrischend!

„Die ausdrucksstarke Stimme von Katja Cruz brilliert in allen Lagen.“ Concerto

„…vocal wonder of Katja Cruz.“ Journal d’écoute

„Katja Cruz has the technique and strength of personality to rivet an audience.“ The New York City Jazz Record

„…straordinaria vocalist austriaca.“ All about Jazz, Italia

„Musik wie diese öffnet die Seelen.“ Concerto

Sculptures restored and repositioned at Meranpark, University of Music and Performing Arts, Graz

In the course of the revitalization of the Meranpark, the sculptures I designed in the years 1998 and 1999 have been renovated and repositioned.
My thanks go to KUG, University of Music and Performing Arts Graz, our mayor Dr. Nagl, DI Wiener, and our vice rectors for their appreciating words for my work at the opening on June 12, 2019, and especially to Dr. Freismuth who made it possible to restore my sculptures.


This was our CD release concert …

Hi everybody, our concert was most pleasurable, actually thrilling… we enjoyed playing – I love this band – and had a great audience, even dancing… Here are some beautiful photos by Günther Kubiza… and by chance a handy com recording by Andreas Woyke who just filmed for joy to have a short concert memory… and I think it gives you a lovely impression, even when the quality of sound is, of course, not the best… Hope to see you soon in concert again! Love, Katja
