Kate Wyatt is now considered one of the top-tier jazz musicians in the city of Montreal. She has been praised as having “musical ideas and a style of playing and writing that is on par with the current jazz piano elite: Brad Mehldau, Yaron Herman, Shai Maestro, Fred Hersch”, and has been hailed as “one of the top artists of Montreal, Quebec, or even Canadian jazz.” (Cardin/Brunet, panm360.com).
In July 2022, Kate released her debut album Artifact to excellent critical reviews. On this album, she leads a quartet whose effortless chemistry fosters deep interaction and high intensity.
