This weeks featured artist is an old favourite of ours, Katie O’Malley with her new single ‘Wasting Time‘.

Waisting Time‘ is a combination of Blues and Americana with all the traits of song written by Katie. Her voice is so distinctive and evokes nostalgia when combined with the twang of guitar and driving drum beat.

Recent winner of the ‘Artist of The Year’ award from British Country Airplay, Katie will be off to a great start to 2020, With what I assume will be an exciting year.

If you don’t know anything about Katie, she is described as

“A voice that pours with emotion and fills a venue, Katie O’Malley and her hip-swaying Americana band have played across the country at numerous shows and festivals, recently being featured on BBC Introducing Manchester and having supported top ten album selling Beth Rowley and country star Kimmie Rhodes. “

A familiar face on the Manchester music scene their music comes across as a intriguing cocktail of First Aid Kit crossed with The Black Keys with a husky yet powerful vocal sprinkled on top.

As featured earlier this week as our GOTW, make sure you check Katie’s gig out this weekend.
