Katey Brooks is a rebellious artist that resists formula. A devastating songwriting talent this ‘rising singer-songwriter had the crowd eating out of her hands’ (The Independent) and is simply ‘not to be missed’ (Time Out). The ‘powerful’ (Evening Standard) songstress defies easy classification, with a sound blending folk, soul, blues and country. Her finger-picked, harmony-inflected 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 new album Revolute was released in May 2019 to huge critical acclaim across the world with over 150 positive reviews so far. Revolute blends soul and folk with Americana to “create something hopefully pretty different…My realm is connection and emotion, something quite raw, I think” – says Katey.

To watch her sing live is to witness emotional exorcism, but when you know her backstory, it’s hardly a mystery why. Growing up inside a cult, as a child Katey found refuge in song. Later, she travelled the world with her guitar on her back, writing everywhere from the Occupied West Bank to an abandoned Finnish island. Over a career spanning four continents, Brooks has journeyed from intimate living rooms to opulent concert halls, from dive bars to decorated studios with some of music’s biggest names, boasting famous admirers like Joss Stone. She has recorded with Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones and Paloma Faith at Abbey Road for BBC Radio 2’s Children in Need single. She has shared bills with a host of big names including Newton Faulkner, Ghostpoet, Martin Simpson, Deaf Havana, Lou Rhodes (Lamb), Mike and the Mechanics, and Mystery Jets. She has played some of the world’s biggest festivals including Glastonbury, WOMAD, the 2012 Paralympics, the Cambridge Folk Festival and Australia’s National Folk Festival.
