Katy was born and raised in London, UK but in the past dozen or so years has established herself as one of the busiest musicians in Minnesota, combining melodic pop/folk songwriting with her twangy Americana band. She has appeared at festivals in the Midwest and UK such as the Ukulele Festival of Great Britain, The Grand Northern Ukulele Festival, Taste of Minnesota, Stars of the North, Big Turn Fest, and Hazelfest. Her newest record Suit of Hearts was just named as a top ten record of the year by the Star Tribune. She has just returned from her third UK tour.
Suit of Hearts is the sound of an artist simultaneously growing and in full bloom, and it’s exciting to hear.” Jim Walsh – MinnPost
“The songs on the album deal with sadness and regret, but when you listen, you hear a woman also finding strength and opening doors to a brighter future.” Colleen Cowie – Minnesota Public Radio
