Dublin native Katie, loves experimenting with music styles to deliver tracks that are both original and fresh from her small bedroom studio. Her Influences are many and very diverse, making her a very exciting and engaging artist. Along with her unique vocals she also plays drums, guitar, ukelele and piano keyboard.
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
Katie's debut EP 'Dead As Disco' was released in October 2015.
It’s confident, bolshy pop music for the Facebook generation, driven by attitude and a carefree spirit. Katie Laffan is a real talent. - Keith McGouran- Dublin Concerts

'the EP indulges in a funky live-band pop sound - a great match for Laffan's vocal youthfulness and sets her apart. In spirit, Laffan sounds like an Irish take on Lily Allen's bolshy style'- Irish Times.com. Release of the Week.
