Released: Early 2015
This is one of the most solid debut Australian original recordings I have ever heard in a long time. Katie is from Denmark, Western Australia, which is a remote area in southern WA.
I met Dan (centre) & Katie (right) at an acoustic gig they played in Brisbane as part of her Aus. wide tour in September 2018. I purchased this CD from her at the gig and have become totally bewitched by it. And BTW it is nothing like what I heard at the gig.
Katie’s vocals are low key & sultry, but she can growl and pounce like a panther. Each track is a unique blend of rock, pop & funk with a twist of reggae rhythm which is a credit to her strong writing skills. This EP transports you into the shadows, into the light, rock out, get funky and slide into smooth coolness.
Katie, wrote, arranged, & sings all tracks, plus plays fret-less electric bass. Her faithful dog seems to always accompany her performances. So adorable!
Sonically the recording has good dynamics; well-balanced staging with breathing space for all the instruments & Katie’s vocals to be enjoyed. If you cannot tell by now I am a bit smitten with this EP and I have listened to it more times than I can remember.
I medicate with music and this is some of the best medicine I’ve taken.
Do yourself a favour, support local talent and get in touch with Katie via Facebook and she will gladly post a CD or two to you.
