About:
Katy Rose Bennett (formerly known as KTB) has been creating songs since she can remember. She was born and raised in rural Oxfordshire but has lived in Birmingham for the last decade. Katy taught herself to play guitar at the age of 12 and spent the years since honing her craft. Under the influence of great writers of song including Gillian Welch, Dory Previn and Nick Drake, she has released three albums, as KTB,
to critical acclaim: All Calm In Dreamland (2002); Bluebird (2005) and Indelible Ink (2009):

“A sophisticated mix of folk, jazz pop and rustica” – The Independent
“Strikingly original” – UNCUT
“Heart-wrenchingly gorgeous” Northern Sky

As a solo artist, Katy has been a BBC Young Folk Award Finalist and has performed across the UK supporting acts including Willy Mason, Karine Polwart and The Staves. She was a founding member and songwriter of the Birmingham all-female, world-folk group, Little Sister.
Katy has recently finished her fourth solo album (Songs of the River Rea) recorded with her brother Joe Bennett (of Dreaming Spires, Goldrush and Co-Pilgrim). This new
album is a collection of songs which tell stories of life in the UK’s second city – songs on the themes of connection, love, loss, memory, and family. The style moves from the acoustic folk of songs like Cold November Day, through the samba-infused pop of One Day, from the old-time country feel of Driving Home to the slow-burning, Americana sound of Jack and Ivy and the gospel-inspired My Friend.
Alongside Katy and Joe, the album features a fine band of players including Phill Ward, Hannah Rhodes, Mike Monaghan, C. j. Hillman and Robin Bennett. It is due for release in April 2016 and will be accompanied by a short tour across the UK taking in intimate acoustic venues and festivals in Spring and Summer 2016.
As well as writing, recording and performing, Katy works as a music therapist and runs community choirs in Birmingham.
