A voice that pours with emotion and fills a venue, Katie O'Malley and her hip-swaying Americana band have played across the UK. Hailing from Manchester and proud northerners, they describe their sound as mix of country, folk, soul & blues. Their 70's inspired music takes you on a journey of mournful melody to punchy beats and gravelly powerful vocals.

Together, they have received airplay from Amazing radio USA, BBC  Introducing  UK, supporting top ten album selling Beth Rowley and country star Kimmie Rhodes.

Although these past couple of years have been a turbulent time for artists it's not stopped Katie from releasing new music with the release of her third E.P ‘Wild West'  and new single 'Taste the Dirt' being backed by Chris Country Radio, Louder Than War and BCMA.

 

Katie also teamed up with Adam Lewis from Manchester band The Watchmakers together they created their song "Piece Of The Pie" which was featured  on the hit Netflix film 'Kissing Booth 2” gaining over 66 million views in its first few weeks of broadcast.
