Born Katherine Thomas, The Great Kat is a violin graduate from the prestigious Juilliard School and has performed as a Classical violin soloist at Carnegie Recital Hall as winner of the Artists International Competition. The Great Kat has also toured as a violin soloist in Mexico, the U.S. and UK.
After graduating from The Juilliard School, The Great Kat decided "to bring classical music to the masses" and quickly switched to guitar. Kat then combined Classical music with Speed Metal, developing the exciting new "Shred/Classical" Music Genre: authentic classical masterpieces (Beethoven, Wagner, Bach, and others) mixed with extreme speed and shredding guitar riffs.
Known as the "High Priestess of Guitar Shred," The Great Kat's discography includes 6 Shred/Classical CDs and an interactive multimedia CD-ROM. Kat's new "WAGNER'S WAR" CD has been hailed by critics as brilliant and revolutionary.
