After seeing Katy perform in London, BBC Radio 2’s Paul Sexton wrote…

Katy Hurt has lived a whole lot of country for an artist who’s yet to hit 20. American culture is stamped on her singer-songwriter soul, from a childhood partly spent living there with her family. Then she returned to the UK to put her love of Nashville sounds and styles to very good use. Hence the rapid emergence of the most exciting prospect on the burgeoning Country/Southern Rock scenes.

Co-Written/produced with guitarist Gab Zsapka, Hurt’s confident, distinctive EP Pieces Of Me is the latest evidence of a career that’s already produced an iTunes UK Country No. 1 in last year’s ‘Love You More,’ among other successes.

Next comes a debut album, fuelled by her considerable experience as a songwriter and as a vivacious and magnetic performer.

Her live shows have impressed fans by combining the honest lyrical content of modern country music music with the riffs, solos and raucous vocals of a southern rock band a la Lynyrd Skynyrd and Cadillac Three.

Katy’s single “Cheap” is scheduled for official release at the end of October. It will be the first single off her Live Double EP “Pieces of Me” which was released as a surprise earlier this year in April.
