A voice that pours with emotion and fills a venue, Katie O'Malley and her hip-swaying Americana band have played shows and festivals across the UK. 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 with a sense of Stevie Nicks meets the Blues.

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. 

Although this year has had many set backs it's not stopped them from releasing music having recently released their third E.P “Wild West”. They have been ​championed by Americana UK and won BCA Country Artiste of the year 2019. 

Katie also teamed up with Adam Lewis from the Manchester band The Watchmakers creating their song "Piece Of The Pie" which was featured this July on the hit Netflix film 'Kissing Booth 2'

"Amazing Voice love her vibrato and husk" Tim- Prottey Jones of The Wandering Hearts

"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
