Originally from Fort McMurray, Alberta, Katrina Kadoski is a Sooke-based singer-songwriter and playwright. Her work invites audiences to form meaningful connections with their hearts.  All info from Website: katrinakadoski.com

Kadoski has written two one-woman multi-media musical dramas, including Victoria Pick of the Fringe winner Cougar Annie Tales (2012) and The Waterman’s Daughter. She was nominated for Best New Play by the Victoria Critics Choice Awards.

Kadoski has worked with a number of theatre groups such as Kate Rubin Theatre, Intrepid Theatre and William Head on Stage (WHoS), Canada’s only inmate-run theatre company. She has created and performed music for productions such as Metamorphosis (2013), Photophobia (2014), Fractured Fables (2014), HERE: A Captive Odyssey (2015), I Have Seen Beautiful Jim Key (2015) and Sleeping Giants (2016).

Kadoski started her music career at a young age, winning Rotary Music Festival’s Best Alberta Vocalist at the age of nine and gaining a youth vocalist scholarship. She played the lead role in many school plays starting in grade 1, leading to her love for being on stage and performing. She has studied eighteen years of vocal training in styles including jazz, musical theatre and opera. She has also studied piano, guitar and banjo. Kadoski has further practised her discipline at a variety of songwriting workshops and retreats over the years. One of these retreats took place at an off-the-grid historical homestead and garden where she crafted her award-winning play Cougar Annie Tales.

Kadoski’s earlier music took inspiration from Lilith Fair, a travelling music festival, which she attended in the late 90s. Her debut full-length album Whirlpools (1998), recorded in Calgary and released independently, mirrors this folk sound. Since then, Kadoski has released two more albums. 2016’s Dreamtime, recorded in Baltimore, maintains her signature folk-pop sound and controlled yet powerful vocals. Her most recent release After the Shipwreck (2020) is sad yet uplifting, an appropriate release for the pandemic.

Driven by her love for being onstage, Kadoski has performed for many sold-out audiences around British Columbia. She has also toured in other places across Canada as well as the United States, Ireland and England. Her goal has always been to help audiences connect with their hearts and develop courage and willingness to do powerful healing.


After the Shipwreck has been featured by the Times Colonist as a critic’s pick in December of 2020. Kadoski was described as “a musical force” by the Monday Magazine while her voice was said to be “powerful, versatile, sweet and unapologetic.” Cougar Annie Tales was met with praise from the Times Colonist—“endearing […] multidisciplinary and well-paced.”

Kadoski is currently working on recording more albums, currently She is just finishing her 5th studio album ”Soul Anthems” and in the recently released “Edgedwellers” a collaboration with her local bandmates in Sooke. She has upcoming tour dates coming up and is currently booking shows in 2024.

NEW MUSICAL PLAY – Mountain Myths is a new show from a song cycle inspired by an artist retreat in the Kootenay’s in B.C this past autumn. It combines original songs, projected historic photo’s, video and artwork.
