Balancing A-Level Studies and a prospering music career can be hard. However, Katie Kittermaster has a head on her shoulders far more mature than her youthful age that has enabled this talented singer-songwriter to catapult to soaring success.
Gaining the attraction of some of the music industry’s most illustrious individuals, Kittermaster has been booked to open for household names such as Jools Holland and Marc Almond, following on from her triumphant support slot for none other than TV talent show royalty Olly Murs and Louisa Johnson on their very own headlining tours. Not to mention missing out the minor detail of being dubbed as “The female Ed Sheeran” by none other than Boyzone’s Keith Duffy and Westlife’s Brian McFadden, big things are blossoming for Katie Kittermaster.
Garnering over 19k followers on social media platform Instagram, it seems the ‘Sunday Afternoon’ singer is fast becoming a micro-influencer on top of her rising star status in the singer-songwriter world. Putting up posts picturing Kittermaster behind the scenes of photoshoots, backstage at big gigs and posing alongside big names in music, Kittermaster’s digital outreach is just as impressive as her long list of award wins and sponsorships with instrumental giants Roland Keyboards and Taylor Guitars, as a result of her authentic song-writing style and confidence.
Now gearing up to releasing her EP ‘Coming Home At Dawn’, which is set to drop on November 1st, it opens with lead single ‘Sunday Afternoon’. Serving as an ode to the comfortable, healthy relationship we all dream of. Kittermaster’s beautifully understated voice is our guide throughout this 5-track EP of sweet and heartfelt love songs, one of which was impressively written at age 15.
“It’s like kaleidoscopes, kaleidoscopes of memories / come running back, running back to me/ but he never does… and I know that now” sings Kittermaster, with a sense of maturity and acceptance that I think we can all agree we wish we had had at the tender age of 15. The EP is full of honest observations written from the point of view of someone navigating the world of romance for the first time and promises to find many fans in young listeners looking for someone to put these difficult emotions into words.
Currently on tour with Boyzlife, Katie Kittermaster is then set to be the only support for songstress Lucy Spraggan on her 37-date tour of the UK and Europe. With astute and honest lyrics and a voice as beautiful as Katie has, it’s a guarantee that this tour will gain her well-deserved fans all over the place, just in time for the release of her wonderfully cosy upcoming EP, ‘Coming Home At Dawn’ ready to be released on November 1st via AWAL.
