In this episode, Mick sits down with triple threat Kat Cunning. From their roots in dancing to acting, singing and songwriting, the multitalented Cunning discusses turning points in their career and how they tell stories they believe in.
With their first EP on the horizon, Cunning—dubbed “One to Watch” by BBC tastemaker Annie Mac—divulges how their taste in music has evolved through influences from Fiona Apple, Pitbull, and Rosalia to icons and dream collaborators such as Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, and Frank Ocean.
Sometimes pegged as a counterculture indie singer-songwriter, Cunning has big ambitions as well, with dreams of creating massive pop performances including a Super Bowl halftime show. For Cunning, music is storytelling.
Host Mick says, “I live my life at the intersection of a lot of things, and sometimes it’s a daily struggle. But Kat Cunning truly defines being a creative who does all things well. Singer. Actor. Dancer. I think people will really be inspired by Episode 003. Kat’s journey is incredible.”
Kat is working on their highly anticipated EP, which is set to launch in January 2021. Be sure to follow them on Instagram, @katcunning, for all the latest updates!
