Kate Walsh is a British singer/songwriter from Burnham-On-Crouch, Essex, a small fishing village. Her music is characterized by her beautiful voice and life caressing vocals. She is an artist who takes you away from the rush and madness of the world. Her music has a timeless quality, making it hard to believe she was only 20 when she released her first album (she was 23 when her second album, Tim’s House, was released).
Kate is an example of an artist who skipped the traditional label publicity machine,and rose to popularity on iTunes. Her self-made album, “Tim’s House” rose to #1 on the UK iTunes store.
She adores Debussy, studies cello, listens constantly to Classic FM (and little else), bemoans the demise of vinyl and CDs (she finally got an iPod when iTunes gave her one after her last album ‘Tim’s House’ knocked Take That off the top of the download chart but rarely uses it), is entertainingly scathing about the conventional music industry (”it’s fickle, selfish, impersonal and backstabbing”) – and has established her own cottage industry to do it her way. And when she sits down to write a song you’d better lock up your hearts for you instantly become Kate’s close personal confidante as she bares her soul with shocking candour.
