Jack Klatt, native of Minnesota's Mississippi river banks, has traveled far and wide through the highways and bi-ways of America, Europe and Canada with his guitar always near by. A self-taught musician and lyricist with eyes and ears wide open, always eager to soak up songs and stories. Klatt has sang in countless barrooms, cafes, living rooms, theaters and street corners all over the world, entertaining folks with his boisterous finger-picking style and whiskey worn voice, continuing the troubador tradition of folks like Utah Phillips, Blind Willie MacTell and Towns Van Zandt.
In 2009 Klatt settled down in Minneapolis, formed a band and founded the Cat Swingers. Soon enough he found himself performing around 100-150 nights a year perfecting his crafts of performance and songwriting.
In 2011 Klatt received a Minnesota State Arts Grant to record a collaborative album with a number of veteran Minnesota legends including Spider John Koerner, Dakota Dave Hull, Cornbread Harris and Charlie Parr. Mississippi Roll has since garnered praise all the way from California to the UK.
With a solo album, "Love Me Lonely" under his belt you can expect to see him on the road, with or without his band, rollin' through a town near you.
