Perthshire vocalist Katie Whittaker marks the release of her upcoming debut album with her first solo headline show with her own band in Perth.
Recorded and produced by David MacFarlane at his studio in Perth, Shine explores young love, self-doubt, perseverance and Katie's own brand of optimistic idealism. With the storytelling of country music, powerful soulful vocals, the hooks of pop hits and that Americana edge that pushes the boundaries of genre and instrumentation, the album embraces every facet of Katie’s musical character.
Best known for her long-term role fronting the great Perth Americana ensemble Red Pine Timber Co, alongside the late Gav Munro, Katie has also won acclaim for her shows celebrating the songs of both Etta James and Bessie Smith. Having proven herself as a truly great singer, Katie is now stepping confidently into the spotlight as a songwriter and an artist in her own right.
