Katie Bulley is a Canadian singer-songwriter and we here at musicmuso always like to bring the talents of artists from across the pond to the attention of UK music lovers, never heard of her? let me introduce her and her music to you....
2006: Katie buys her first guitar and started attending open mics.
2008: Katie plays her first show with a band.
2011: Katie was nominated and won emerging artist of the year at The Hamilton Arts Awards. A year later the all-girl punk band she founded ‘The Barettas’ called it quits. She continued to perform as a solo act with new material one week later.
2014: After gaining some momentum, she drove the southern states of America to realise her dreams. Katie wound up recording her solo debut at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, TN. That session included Johnny Cash's last bass player Dave Roe, the drumming talents of John Argroves, and Grammy-winning recording engineer Matt Ross-Spang as her backing band. Her debut album Sun Wolf won 'Roots recording of the year’ at the Hamilton Music Awards.
2015: As a way of humbling herself, she tested out new songs on the streets of Toronto and the surrounding areas as a licensed busker. Once fall arrived, she started programming drum tracks to play along with to prep for a new release. The Warhol Factory was initially an “experiment of modern technology and retro influences” that she ended up sharing in 2015. She wrote, played, recorded, produced, and released the album herself on vinyl, CD and MP3.
2016: Due to her working-class status, Katie’s show appearances are rare, but her relevance in the scene has become undeniable. Coffee House was released in November making that her 3rd independent album and first acoustic release.
So there you have it folks, a rundown of the last 10 years of Katie's life, now, onto some music!
