Information:

Katey Brooks is a rebellious troubadour that resists formula. A devastating songwriting talent that has drawn comparisons with Jeff Buckley (Supajam), this ‘rising singer-songwriter

has the crowd eating out of her hands’ (The Independent), and is simply ‘not to be missed’ (Time Out). The ‘powerful’ (Evening Standard) songstress defies easy classification, with a

sound blending folk, soul, blues and country. Her finger-picked, harmony-inflected sound on the 2016 I Fought Lovers EP received an enthusiastic reception from radio stations around

the UK and internationally, including BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music and CBC Canada. She travelled the

world with her guitar on her back, writing everywhere from the Occupied West Bank to an

abandoned Finnish island. Over a career spanning four continents, Brooks has journeyed

from intimate living rooms to opulent concert halls, from dive bars to decorated studios with

some of music’s biggest names, boasting famous admirers like Joss Stone. She has recorded

with Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones and Paloma Faith at Abbey Road for BBC Radio 2’s

Children in Need single. She has shared bills with a host of big names including Newton Faulkner, Ghostpoet, Martin Simpson, Deaf Havana, Lou Rhodes (Lamb), Mike and the Mechanics, and Mystery Jets. She has played some of the world’s biggest festivals including Glastonbury, WOMAD, the 2012 Paralympics, and Australia’s National Folk Festival. And Stuart Bruce, who has recorded some of the greatest musical names of all time – from Stevie Wonder to Elton John and Van Morrison – is a fan. With her new album Revolute under construction, the mercurial songstress is more determined than ever to do things her own way. ‘Revolute will blend soul with Americana and even some country, to create something hopefully pretty different…My realm is connection and emotion, something quite raw, I think.’
