Katy Rose Bennett (formerly known as KTB) has been creating songs since she can remember. She was born and raised in rural Oxfordshire but has lived in Birmingham for the last decade.
Katy taught herself to play guitar at the age of 12 and spent the years since honing her craft. Under the influence of great writers of song including Gillian Welch, Dory Previn and Nick Drake, she has released three albums, as KTB, to critical acclaim: All Calm In Dreamland (2002); Bluebird (2005) and Indelible Ink (2009):
“A sophisticated mix of folk, jazz pop and rustica” – The Independent
“Strikingly original” – UNCUT
“Stunning…songs that encapsulate everything that is good about modern songwriters and modern song writing…heart-wrenchingly gorgeous” Northern Sky
Katy has recently finished her fourth solo album (Songs of the River Rea), to be released in April 2016. As well as writing, recording and performing, Katy works as a music therapist and community choir leader in Birmingham.
