Katie Laffan has never been an artist to stand still. From a debut EP of lo-fi bedroom funk pop to last year’s subtle, affecting ‘Trophy’, the Dubliner delights in taking influence from a wealth of genres. Along the way, she and her band played shows across the country – including Cork Jazz, Electric Picnic, K Fest, Canalaphonic, Body & Soul and Townlands Carnival before finishing off 2016 with two gigs at Other Voices in Dingle
Katie was introduced into the Irish music scene appearing on the cover of Hotpress Magazine as the winner of the Alcatel/Hotpress 'Big Break' 2013, aged 17.
"I recorded two of my songs in Windmill Lane Studios thanks to Guinness Amplify for my EP. It was an incredible experience and I got to bring my band along to help me, which made it even more special, but creating the songs on my own at home is what I really love to do..." – Katie Laffan
“She really is a remarkable talent. There is freshness and originality about what she does,".– Hot Press Editor Niall Stokes
