Jeri Katherine Howell is an Americana singer-songwriter and rhythm guitarist from Frankfort, Kentucky who commands performances with her dynamic voice, thought-provoking lyrics, and joyful presence.  She has been writing, performing, teaching and collaborating with musicians for over 15 years, touring across the U.S., Latin America, Europe, and Japan, while being rooted in her Kentucky home.

Experience Jeri Katherine's 2021 debut duo album with Nat Colten, Holding On, available where music streams.

Composed of five tracks written by Jeri Katherine and five by Nat, Holding On celebrates the duo’s connection to place and community. The album includes songs written across several years and sometimes even across different continents, but the resulting work is a seamless reflection on the interconnection and interdependence of nature, self, and community, with threads of social and environmental justice. 

Born and raised in Frankfort, Jeri Katherine and Nat grew up on bluegrass, Appalachian, country, classical, and world musical traditions, and they sow seeds of each into their own lyrics and melodies to create a signature Folk/Americana sound. With Jeri Katherine on guitar and Nat playing banjo, their vocals pour out like bourbon and Ale-8 - a sweet burn, mixed well and meant to be.
