Katharina Franck (born July 28, 1963) is German singer who became famous with her band Rainbirds and has produced several solo albums.
In 1986, she founded Rainbirds, which went through various iterations over the 13 years, until finally in 1999 the group dissolved. From 1990 to 1994, while still with Rainbirds, she was also a member of the group Stein (which included her Rainbirds band member, Ulrike Haage), which produced three albums.
With Haage, she has worked on two radio plays focused on the life and work of Jane Bowles, 1999's "Bei unserer Lebensweise ist es sehr angenehm, lange im voraus zu einer Party eingeladen zu werden" ("Living the Way We Do, It Is Delightful to Be Invited to a Party a Long Way Off") and 2005's "Ich war fischen" ("I Was Fishing").
Franck has also released several solo albums: "Hunger" ("spoken pop songs" set to music by Haage) (in English and in German) in 1997; "Zeitlupenkino" (2002) (in German); "First Take Second Skin" (2006) (in English); and "On the Verge of an Autobiography" (2008) (in English).
