It’s been over a year since Kat Perkins was eliminated from season six of The Voice, but that didn’t put a damper on things. Her dream of making a name for herself within the music industry lives on. For those who are still on the dark side about Perkins, the nanny turned rock star has been working hard for the past 15 years on her musical career to finally situate herself where she stands today.
Perkins fronted a rock band called Scarlett Haze, who shared the stage with many national artists such as Rev Theory, Bret Michaels of Poison and Bon Jovi, the latter Perkin’s idol. In 2013, she traveled to the Middle East with other musicians to cheer and entertain American military troops. She was discovered by promoters who saw a video of her singing Adele’s “Someone Like You” posted on YouTube, and soon after she was selected for The Voice’s blind auditions. In August 2014, she released her very first single as a solo artist, “Fearless,” and her career has skyrocketed since then.
Almost two weeks ago she released Drive, her first full-length album, and last Thursday OutlLoud had the opportunity to talk to the “fearless driver” and ask her what her journey has been like.
“I sort of live my life pretty OutLoud,” Perkins said.
