Mostly underground for years as a secret songwriter & making her name as the Belfast blues powerhouse Mama Kaz, Kaz is now established as one the biggest singers to come out of Northern Ireland, locally called “A Vocal Force” on stage, she envelops the fighting spirit of a true powerhouse singer.
Kaz is loved for her down to earth attitude; she brings fun to every performance & is loved not only by her fans but anyone who meets her. She has lived and sang “The Blues” but has much more to offer across different genres in her song writing so is now embarking on a more commercial route writing power ballads & funky roots.
With recent support gigs to Van Morrison, Nanci Griffiths, Pat McManus, Chris Farlowe, Matt Andersen, Kaz has the backing of many influential representatives in Belfast with a recent presentation from The Lord Mayor of Belfast Máirtin Ó Muilleoir quoted saying “Belfast is proud of your talent & we know you will go on to great things & support you in all you do” when he was wishing East Belfast Arts Festival good luck in 2013.
Kaz has also written the anthem for Cancer Focus Northern Ireland CHARITY for The Belfast City Half Marathon 2013 & has donated the song “Run for yer Man” for download for Cancer Research.
Kaz has also used her life experience in a short film called BELIEVE which is part of an ongoing project she is working with a collective of people from Belfast to promote positive thinking in the arts.
