Katy is an English singer, songwriter, musician, and multi-instrumentalist with a love and passion for music that has shaped and defined Katy’s sound of soul, r’n’b and pop.
Katy came from a musical family and initially trained as a classical pianist. From an early age Katy found inspiration from her parents, being constantly surrounded by an eclectic array of music. This formed an incredible love and passion for music that has shaped and defined Katy’s sound of soul, r’n’b and pop to this day.
In 2006, Katy was going about her business as a relatively unknown musician with no shortage of talent. This raw talent was soon recognised by several experts in the music industry, including John Legend, whilst taking part in a nationally televised UK talent show called Chancers. After a gruelling challenge that showcased Katy’s full repertoire and incredibly diverse range, Katy blew away the competition and won the show.
Winning Chancers gave Katy the opportunity to spend 12 months supporting Beyoncé on Tour where she performed on the biggest stage possible with solo performances at legendary venues such as Madison Square Garden, Wembley and The Staples Centre to name a few. Katy comments “It was the most unbelievable experience, playing in front of 20,000 people week in week out for a year was amazing”.
