Kitty Brazelton has been performing professionally
since 1969. She appears primarily singing her own
composed repertoire accompanied by her own (or
co-led) ensembles:

Kitty and her bass in Bat

But Brazelton enjoys just being a
performer exploring the work of
other composers, some of which
was written specifically for her.
