about

“A Better Picture” is Kat Webb’s sophomore album of original soul music. It draws on the numerous musical styles in Webb’s background, including some folk from her home state of Texas, some blues from the South, and some New Jack Swing from her new home on the East Coast. It was co-produced by world-class musician and veteran producer, Christian Ver Halen (Maya Azucena, Kendra Ross), and musician and band leader, Jesse Fischer (Soul Cycle, Gretchen Parlato).

I want to send a very special and huge THANK YOU!!!! to my parents, Stephen and Gwendolyn Webb, along with my Port Arthur, TX family. Without their love and constant support, I most definitely would not have been able to make this dream finally come true. I thank my family from the bottom of my heart and hope that this album is something they can be proud to stand by. I also want to thank Calvin Wright for his amazing artwork and creative support throughout the project. And last but not least, I want to thank Christian Ver Halen for being a true mentor throughout this process. Without your guidance, this would have been a very different album. You are truly an inspiration. This album is in memoriam of my late Grandma Ethel.
