A singular sound in the vocal world, Kosins exemplifies the intersection of jazz and soul.

In 2022, Kosins earned several top nominations for her duet with Frank McComb, “I Gotta Pinch Myself”, featuring Najee. The song was nominated in the Song of the Year category at the SoulTracks Readers Choice Awards. She’s also played to sold-out audiences in Istanbul and the UK. Her single with renowned pianist, composer, and producer Bob Baldwin, “Let’s Rewind”, earned her another Number One spot on the Smooth Jazz charts, the UK Soul Chart Top 30 and the Indie Soul Chart Top 30.

2024 has exciting news for all discerning soul jazz fans: new collaborations with bassist, composer, producer, Paul Randolph, (formerly of Jazzanova) are releasing every 90 days, under the project name, DetroitCentriX.

Kosins will also release several tracks she wrote during the making of her now-classic Uncovered Soul and its aftermath. Look for more tour dates at home and abroad.

After successful engagements at the 2019  Blue Note at Sea Cruise  and  Blue Note Beijing, the Exit Zero Jazz Festival, a supporting performance for  Gregory Porter in Atlanta, an appearance at  The Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society’s  famed winter jazz series, Detroit vocalist and  ASCAP Award Winning composer Kathy Kosins is thrilled to celebrate the success that her sixth studio album, Uncovered Soul  has gained across commercial radio. The driving, funk-tinged track “Put the Voodoo on Me,” is Kosins’s 4th consecutive  Top 20 Indie Soul Jazz Single and topped the Indie Soul Chart  at  #1.

Her 2023 reimagined single “From A 2 B”, won Jazz Vocal Single Of The Year from The Independent Broadcasters Alliance.

Kosins was the Highest Charting Vocalist for 2020 on the  Smooth Jazz Network and to date has remained on their radio affiliates, including Billboard reporting stations, for 102 consecutive weeks. She was nominated by the Smooth Jazz Network for  Breakout Artist of the Year.

Uncovered Soul, released on Maristar, is a celebration of Kosins’s soul-infused roots, tracing back to the artist’s upbringing during the legendary Motown years in Detroit. Kosins delivers her most intense and intimate singing yet and wows audiences with her impeccable, flawless phrasing and a deep-rooted passion for telling the story. With Kamau Kenyatta, the stellar longtime producer of Gregory Porter, by her side, Kosins takes listeners on a dynamic musical journey with an eclectic musical palette. This soul-infused project sat at  #1 on the Official Indie Soul Chart, where it was named  Jazz Album of the Year.

Uncovered Soul, dubbed a “consummate work of art” by  GinaLovesJazz, garnered international attention from publications including  SoulTracks, Blues And Soul, Echoes Magazine, All About Jazz, Jazz Journal, Jazzwise  and  PopMatters. Kosins made her  BBC debut  on the  Robert Elms Show.

When not touring the USA or Europe, Kathy, a true renaissance woman, excels as a painter. Her abstract acrylics on canvas are influenced by the cubist paintings of the ’50s. Commissioned paintings are held in private collections and Kosins continues to sell her work at both gallery shows and concert performances. Integrating her art of the visual and the aural nature, Kosins is bringing her painting to the stage, by incorporating live-painting at every performance. Her work is currently being displayed and represented by a notable Detroit gallery.

A past recipient of the Michigan Council for the Arts award Jazz Composer of the Year, Kosins has received grants from Michigan’s ArtServe advocacy group. Her clinics and workshops teach performance skills alongside business strategies for the independent artist and have been a success at over 200 colleges and universities across the USA.
