Album news, festivals and music-making

So, it’s been a busy few months since the launch of ‘Songs of The River Rea’. The album has been getting some lovely reviews from the likes of Three Chords and the TruthFolking.comNorthern Sky Magazine and Band of Badgers.

Here is some of what they say:

ā€œEleven exquisitely crafted songsā€ Three Chords and the Truth UK

ā€œThere’s something in Katy’s voice that evokes melancholy yet is never morose nor overly sad. In fact there’s a sort of joy in the way she writes and how the songs are deliveredā€¦ beautifully tenderā€¦ Katy’s stories are always thoroughly convincing and at times they tug at the heartstringsā€ Northern Sky Magazine

ā€œNothing short of a masterpiece of songwriting, musicianship and productionā€¦Engaging, captivating and quite frankly, flawlessā€ Band of Badgers Presents

The album’s been getting a bit of radio play around the UK too including being featured album on Mike Davies’ alternative roots show on Brum radio – listen Here
