Born in Geneva, Switzerland, Kat Graham stepped into the entertainment industry at the ripe age of six. From then until she was 14, she could be found in commercials and popular television shows. A diligent student of the arts, Kat began to further her natural acting talents with vocal training, piano lessons and dance classes. The effort soon paid off. At the age of 15 she was chosen by renowned choreographer Fatima to perform at the BET Awards as a background dancer for Bow-Wow. That experience led to other stints as a background dancer for Missy Elliott, Pharrell and choreographers Hi Hat and Michael Rooney.
In addition to being a professional actress and dancer, Kat also began to pursue a career as a musical artist. One of the first songs she wrote and sung ("Derailed") was featured in a Jean-Claude Van Damn movie. Completing that song inspired her to purchase her own studio equipment and add producer to her list of talents. Although she had no formal production training, she soon mastered the techniques and developed her unique style.
A year later she met superstar producer Damon Elliott (Pink, Mya, Destiny's Child) who turned out to be an influential mentor. While the two worked on perfecting Kat's skills as a musician and producer, she continued to work as an actress, starring on television shows. At 17, Kat was selected by the Coca-Cola Company as part of an international campaign to market their soft drink Fanta. While promoting the campaign as a member of the "Fantanas" (as Capri/Strawberry), Kat simultaneously completed her degree in recording engineering.
A true triple threat, she continues to effortlessly float between the disciplines of acting, music and dance: she recently finished a world tour with The Black Eyed Peas; her melodic voice is featured on two songs on will.i.am's latest solo release "Songs About Girls" ("I Got It From My Mama" and "The Donque Song" feat. Snoop Dogg) and she recently wrapped the film "17 Again" which stars Zac Efron and Matthew Perry.
