Kathy Farmer's beautiful voice, expressiveness, jazz sensibility, engaging personality, and ability to connect with her audience make her a standout. Her great love of jazz was influenced by her mom's favorite radio station and Broadway show albums that filled the home with American Songbook classics.  

Her stylistic approach has been influenced by some of the jazz greats, including Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Anita O'Day, Eydie Gorme, Helen Forest. And then there are the women of pop--like Whitney Houston, Dusty Springfield, Carole King, Gladys Knight and so many more!

Kathy wears a few singing hats, offering the performance range and scope of music to fit both audience and venue--

  • vocalist with a jazz combo or acoustic guitar tailored to the needs of the client  and the occasion

  • one of three "chicks" in the Pop Chicks, performing classic tunes from classy ladies of pop history!

  • vocalist with The Bob Smith Trio and The Jim Levy Quartet, performing jazz standards as well as more contemporary tunes with a jazz influence

  • vocalist with Accidental Red, a five-piece jazz ensemble 


She has performed throughout the greater Washington, DC area, including the Kennedy Center, Blues Alley, Mr. Henry's, Twins Jazz, the Carlyle Club, JoJo's, Glen Echo's Spanish Ballroom, Twins Jazz--and many other jazz venues, restaurants, as well as for private events.
