*************************************************************************************************
Born and raised in a commune setting between Bristol, London and Arizona, to hippy music-loving parents, Indie Award nominee Katey Brooks’ unique sound and style epitomizes the culturally diverse environment in which she grew up. Drawing influences from artists like Johnny Cash and Kate Bush, her voice is often compared to the likes of Joan Armatrading, and Annie Lennox, and has best been described as a voice “…to melt glaciers” (Venue Magazine).
*************************************************************************************************
Known for her powerful and evocative live sets, Katey has played a notable list of amazing shows including London 2012, Glastonbury Festival, WOMAD Festival, a BBC Introducing Stage headliner at Wychwood, several European Festivals, and supported a host of credible artists such as Newton Faulkner, Mercury nominee Lou Rhodes, Mike and The Mechanics, Grammy nominees Cutting Crew, and BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner Chris Wood.
*************************************************************************************************
Besides her own works, Brooks’s “John Martyn-esque” (Manchester Evening News) lamenting tones have earned her features on BBC Radio 2 Children in Need album ‘Bandaged Together’, recorded at Abbey Road with artists such as Bill Wyman (Rolling Stones), Nick Mason (Pink Floyd), and Paloma Faith, as well as compilations with Ane Brun and Anais Mitchell.
*************************************************************************************************
Last year was fantastic with Brooks being added to the Starbucks playlist worldwide, and signing an endorsement deal with American guitar makers Alvarez, joining the ranks of Grammy Award winner Ani Difranco, and Joe Bonamassa. Her ‘Back to Light’ Tour in the Spring received rave reviews and write ups from Metro UK, Rock ‘n’ Reel, Venue and Shakenstir Magazine.
*************************************************************************************************
After a summer of shows, festivals and a busy few months tucked away writing for the new album, Katey recently released a brand new EP; which has been highly praised by critics. The 'I Fought Lovers EP' is the follow up release to her debut album 'Proof Of Life' which reached No.1 in the Amazon Folk chart along with favourable press reviews and BBC Radio 1 and 6 airplay. The first single and title track from the EP has been featured on Dermot O'Leary's BBC Radio 2 show, while two tracks were chosen for 6 Music's Tom Robinson's mixtape - – it’s haunting, ethereal sound being a great first taste of what’s to come off the second album in 2015. Now under the wing of UK based label Abandon Music Group, and having just got back from her Australian tour, KB is back in the studio making the new record, and this year looks set to be better than ever.
