Katy Hurt is one of those rare talents that can write and perform with equal impact. The singer-songwriter’s work ethic and authenticity are apparent in each song and are further evidenced by herrigorous touring schedule and accolades. In 2018 she opened for Liam Gallagher at the Pilton Party to a crowd 8,000 strong and 2019 saw Katy and her band perform in excess of 150 shows across two sold out UK headline tours, as well as international dates in Canada, the US and the Caribbean where she performed alongside Sonia Leigh on the Melissa Etheridge cruise and opened for the Bellamy Brothers at their first UK show in over a decade.
Being an independent artist doesn’t seem to be slowing Katy down, with over 350k streams on her debut studio EP “Unfinished Business” on Spotify alone, she is truly building her fanbase from the ground up, winning hearts a show at a time. The self-released EP, which produced the Top 20 hit singles “Revved Up” and “Unfinished Business” was given a 5 star review by Maverick Magazine, where they noted “superb songs” with “raw talent seeping through each track”.
Steeped in country roots, but never one to simply yield to the traditional Nashville sound, Katy stretches the country music genre in exciting new directions. She was chosen to perform at LA NAMM in January 2020, representing brands such as Tanglewood, Yamaha, G7th Capos and Kirlin Cables and flew from Winnipeg to LA and back to continue work on her debut album which is currently a highly anticipated release.
Following her return to the UK, Katy kicked off what was scheduled to be her best touring year yet, on a high note, headlining at the UKCMSA Awards evening, hosted by Belles and Gals, and taking home awards for “Best Female Artist” and “Best UK EP/Album with Unfinished Business”.
During the past year, whilst unable to tour due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Katy has entertained thousands, right from their living rooms, with her weekly livestream series on Saturday nights and has recently begun a second series on alternate Wednesday’s where she dives into the origins of the music that raised her.
With all the uncertainty that faces live music, one thing that you can be sure of is that Katy’s debut album will be the light at the end of the tunnel, and the only place she will be going is up.
