A voice that pours with emotion and fills a venue, Katie O'Malley and her hip-swaying Americana band have played across the country at a long list of shows and festivals. They have received radio airplay from BBC Introducing Manchester and country stations throughout the UK, America and Australia supporting top ten album selling Beth Rowley and country star Kimmie Rhodes.
A familiar face on the Manchester music scene their music comes across as an intriguing cocktail of First Aid Kit crossed with The Black Keys with a husky yet powerful vocal sprinkled on top. They describe their sound as mix of country, folk, soul & blues.
Katie and the band have recently released their second E.P “Never Be The Same” championed by Americana UK
"Katie's singing reminds me of some of the best woman vocalists of the 70's folk rock movement, hints of stevie nicks and linda thompson." - The Modern Folk music of America
“She always sounds in control, confident, capable. She handily pulls off the difficult feat of revealing her resilience and strength through her vulnerability.” - Americana UK
"she squeezes every last drop of emotion out of the words she's singing. Her own songs like To Be a Woman, Dawn Chorus and What You Need are beautifully crafted songs, delivered from the heart and with a voice that holds the audience's attention rapt." -Even the Stars Blog
