Katy has lived a whole lot of country for an artist who’s yet to hit 20. American culture is stamped on her singer-songwriter soul, from a childhood partly spent living there with her family. Then she returned to the UK to put her love of Nashville sounds and styles to very good use. Hence the rapid emergence of one of the most exciting prospects on the burgeoning British country scene. Katy’s confident, distinctive EP Pieces Of Me is the latest evidence of a career that’s already produced an iTunes UK Country No. 1 in last year’s ‘Love You More,’ among other successes. Next will come a debut album, fuelled by her already considerable experience as a songwriter on both sides of the Atlantic, and as a vivacious and magnetic performer.
