Live: Katey Brooks

*This is a re-scheduled gig as Katey was ill with covid the last time she was due to play.

Katey Brooks is a rebellious artist that resists formula.  The
‘powerful’ (Evening Standard) songstress defies easy classification,
with a sound blending folk, soul, blues and Americana. Her versatility
has become one of her biggest assets when lending her voice to different
genres and moods. A devastating song-writing talent she is simply ‘not
to be missed’ (Time Out).  Her haunting ethereal 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 and her most recent album Revolute was released in 2019
to huge critical acclaim across the world including a ‘Best Album of
the Year’ credit from music magazine Popdust.

Brooks’ vocals have featured on records with Brian May (Queen), Bill
Wyman (Rolling Stones), Nick Mason (Pink Floyd) and Paloma Faith
recorded at Abbey Road for BBC Radio 2’s Children in Need album
‘Bandaged Together’ and she has shared bills with a host of big
names including Newton Faulkner, Seth Lakeman, Nick Mulvey, Lou Rhodes
(Lamb), Mike and the Mechanics, and Mystery Jets.

No stranger to collaboration, KB has recently featured on tracks with
DnB big hitter Dimension, Fybe One (out on Tru Thoughts in 2022), new
Radio 2 favourite Nixon Tate, and European chart-topper Lorenzo
Gabanizza. This year she has already been busy working with fellow
LGBTQ+ musician, actor and activist Heather Peace and House producer
Martin Badder on a single due for release in early 2022. In addition she
has been working on several different film soundtracks, due for release
this year, which span from horror films to ethereal folk songs for cat
documentaries… There’s nothing Katey can’t turn her voice to!

She’s made fans out of her peers with Joss Stone telling her fans
online “I love this lady’s voice. She really means what she’s
singing” and Squeeze legend Chris Difford “Your voice is just
amazing” which has recently earned her an opening slot during his tour
in 2022.
