Kathryn Marie McDonald, popularly known as Kathi McDonald, is a blues and rock singer. She currently performs with Kathi McDonald & Friends. She has appeared on an extensive list of rock and blues albums and toured extensively with Long John Baldry prior to his death. Kathi was born in Anacortes, Washington and resides in the Seattle Washington state area but still has strong San Francisco music connections. At the age of 19 she set off for San Francisco and its burgeoning musical climate, where she met the Turners and, through her association with them, took the first step on a career path that would span more than three decades. McDonald got her big break and her first big professional gig when she was attending an Ike (& Tina) Turner concert and was singing in the audience at Winterland. Her powerful voice drew Ike Turner's notice and he invited the aspiring singer to his and Tina Turner's next rehearsal. McDonald had snagged a spot in the Ikettes. It was a heady and magical beginning for someone who never had any formal lessons. This is the debut solo album.
