With her spry pop framework, Katie Kittermaster articulates the melancholy of young adulthood with wit, warmth and clarity. She possesses an ability to express some of the more difficult, confusing aspects of human relationships in a lucid, plain-spoken way. That makes her songs, even in their most downcast moments, a study of resolve, strength and triumph.
Kittermaster was well aware of this power from the starting gun, leaning mostly on guitar and voice on her 2019 EP ‘Coming Home At Dawn’. Hitting the road with the likes of Kaiser Chiefs, Scouting For Girls, Ronan Keating and Lucy Spraggan in her career’s formative stages made it abundantly clear that crowds really homed in on her honest, conversational songs, which have gathered millions of plays worldwide.
The 2020 single ‘One Of A Kind’ introduced a more condensed, pop-focused direction for Katie, without sacrificing the relatable, down-to-earth magnetism that marked her previous material. To connect on a deeper, more immediate level with her listeners, Katie is directly engaging with them on TikTok to witness firsthand how her unfinished material resonates. After starting to tease her new music she has gained views above 1.9 million and 600,000 likes.
Her 2020 single ‘The Problem’ playlisted on over 98 UK radio stations and was played across Europe, with Kittermaster receiving consistent support from BBC Introducing Kent.
In May of this year, Kittermaster signed a global publishing deal with BMG Publishing.
She is set to play her sold-out debut headline show in September, performing at 229 London with her full band, and will be headlining a show at The Garage London on Saturday 26th February 2022, in partnership with DHP Promotions and Industry Live Agency.
As Kittermaster churns out fresh new tunes from old scars and flourishes into adulthood, her journey up ahead looks very bright indeed.
