HI, I’m Katy. I’m 17 years old and was born on 31 May, so I’m a Gemini…curious and chatty!
I am a Singer Songwriter. I absolutely love to sing. In fact, I can’t imagine not singing. I am constantly being told off (even in class) for either humming or singing. I grew up listening to a really diverse range of music from Rock to Country, even Arabic and Spanish. When I was 13 years old I had the pleasure of visiting Memphis and whilst touring Sun Studios got the opportunity of recording a cover version of “Girls just wanna have fun” there. In the same place where Elvis recorded his first hits. I was hooked, knew right there and then that this is where I belonged. Next stop was Nashville I spent the rest of the holiday knocking on doors in the hope that a record company would take my demo!
Fast forward, 3 years and I was lucky enough to spend the day at Sticky Company Studios with Jake Gosling. Mikill Pane was kind enough to ask to record the intro to his – “You Guest It” EP featuring Ed Sheeran, Paloma Faith & Example.
I spent a week at Mu Music in Sheffield working with Martin Smith, an incredible Music Producer. We recorded my first single ‘Wait For You’, which was released on ITunes, 4 days after my 16th birthday.
I have taken part in music competitions from Rock the House, Teen Star, Live & Unsigned making it through to the Grand Final taking place at the Indigo O2.
Recently, I went in to the studio with the producer Smiley at Sunshine Corner Studios where we worked on my EP ‘Blue Snake’ released June 23, 2014.
