Having recently returned to the states after a European tour, Copenhagen-via-NYC musician CALLmeKAT will be performing several dates in June, including a set of dates at NXNE in Toronto. Known for her distinctly Scandinavian sound: melancholic, dreamy pop, CALLmeKAT is the moniker of Danish singer, keyboardista and composer Katrine Ottosen. Throughout Europe and Scandinavia, CALLmeKAT has toured as solo headliner as well as opening for notable artists such as Sebastien Tellier, Au Revoir Simone, Okkervil River, The Dø and Nouvelle Vague, amongst others.
In 2009, CALLmeKAT played numerous critically-acclaimed shows, received an Underground Music Award for “Best Alternative Act,” and was granted one of the Danish Art Council’s prestigious grants for young, talented artists with international ambition and potential. She then made an appearance at the 2010 SXSW Festival, where she was asked to perform a “Tiny Desk SXSW Concert” on NPR’s All Things Considered. This was followed by a pick on both Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton’s (NPR) “Who We Liked-list” from this year’s SxSW. During the festival, she was also filmed by Yours Tru.ly for an intimate parking lot performance.
Living in New York since early 2010, she recently collaborated with Joe Magistro (Prophet Omega) on finishing her international debut When Owls Are Out, which consists of reworked and remixed material from her Scandinavian 2008 release Fall Down, and also brand new recordings.
Check out CALLmeKAT’s video for the single “My Sea,” directed by D.R. Kelley and filmed on location in Los Angeles.

“Outstanding voice, delicate music…Just mesmerizing” — NPR
“…winning lo-fi synth pop.'” — Interview Magazine
“Her music has always combined the minimalist effects of lo-fi with instantly memorable melodies, yet when her and sidekick Daniel perform with nothing more than dueling keyboards it highlights that oh, so delicate voice and gives an onlooker chills.” — I Guess I’m Floating
