“A once-a-generation talent” Henry Yates (NME, Guardian)

Growing up inside a cult, Katey Brooks found refuge in song. A rebellious artist that resists formula, the ‘powerful’ (Evening Standard) award-winning singer, songwriter & producer brings a seamless blend of Americana, Folk and Pop to listeners’ ears, which has earned her radio play from BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, 6music, Canada’s CBC, Jazz FM, and Amazing Radio amongst many others.

“She had the crowd eating out of her hands” The Independent

No stranger to the stage, Brooks has toured in the US, Australia, Canada, Europe and the UK. She has shared bills with artists like Cat Burns, Nick Mulvey, Newton Faulkner, and Yola, as well as playing big name festivals such as Glastonbury, WOMAD, Paralympics 2012, the Australian National Folk Festival, and several BBC Introducing stages, to name a few.

“One of the best albums of the year” Pop Dust

KB’s album Revolute was released in 2019 to huge critical acclaim across the world including a ‘Best Album of the Year’ credit from music magazine Popdust, and premiers for the singles from Billboard, Pride Magazine, and Gay Times. Since then she has released a live album, several singles, and had multiple collaborations including upcoming track with award-winning Blues artist, Elles Bailey.

Brooks’ vocals have featured on records with Brian May (Queen), Bill Wyman (Rolling Stones), Nick Mason (Pink Floyd) and Paloma Faith. Her music has been used in the West End (PRIDE), TV (Hulu’s Harlots soundtrack) and film (My Christmas Hero). She has so far earned three Best Original Song awards at film festivals.

“Love this lady’s voice…she really means what she’s singing” Joss Stone

Brooks has made fans out of her influences and heroes including Joss Stone, Nick Van Eede (Cutting Crew), and Chris Difford (Squeeze) who have all spoken warm words of support for her. It’s safe to say she has been catching the attention of big names, with her song ’All Of Me’ making the finals in the International Songwriting Competition in 2023, whose judges included Mariah Carey, Coldplay & Tom Waits.

With 205 songs written in 200 days in 2023, expect to hear a lot from Katey Brooks in 2024.
