Indie Award nominee Katey Brooks is best described as a female Hozier, with all the haunting intensity and every bit of the soul. With a “voice to melt glaciers” (Venue Magazine) Brooks is at home anywhere she can take her guitar. From Glastonbury Festival to the National Folk Festival in Australia, Brooks’ “devastating vocal talent” (Just Music That I Like) has garnered her admirers from across the spectrum of the industry, seeing her sing on tracks with Paloma Faith, Imelda May, The Rolling Stones’ Bill Wyman, Nick Mason of Pink Floyd and Brian May, and share the bill with acts such as Newton Faulkner, Ghostpoet, Deaf Havana and Mystery Jets.
The haunting, ethereal sound of her last ‘I Fought Lovers’ EP is prelude to the sonic largesse of her forthcoming album ‘We The People’, receiving a warm reception from stations across the country and internationally, including BBC Radio 2, 6, and Canada’s CBC.
Having led a fascinating life with a vivid cast of characters, Katey takes to the road often, to draw inspiration from the people she meets. The writing for her current album began in the chaos of London life, continuing on tour in the dusty expanse of Australia, and finding its completion on the side of a beautiful little mountain in the Welsh wilderness.
Katey packed in tours in Europe, Australia and Canada last year, a follow up tour in Australia earlier this year which featured sell out shows at the National Folk Festival, and is coming back to London with her band to give fans a live glimpse of the brand new album.
