Cathie King is the violinist and backup vocalist of KansAZ.
She is from Mesa, Arizona and attended Arizona State University. Cathie began violin after seeing her older sister play for the first time. Being the middle child, she couldn't bear to let her sister take the spot light, and as such, decided to pick up the violin herself.
Although classically trained, she has had the great opportunity to expand her musical performance genres to country and even rock. Cathie has performed for various symphonies throughout the valley and currently performs with an accomplished string quartet (The Encore Quartet) and several bands in the Phoenix area including the Neil Diamond tribute “Diamond in the Rough” and many others.
Cathie’s exquisite tone, experience with multiple musical genres, and emotive mastery of the violin make her a perfect fit for KansAZ in performing the diverse music of Kansas.
