Katy Rea
Katy Rea
Katy Rea is a Brooklyn based, Texas born musician with a gift for building hook heavy tunes with soulful and poignant lyrics. A kind nod to the beat gen, Patti Smith and all, her soaring vocals and warm, guitar driven melodies have been described as “sweet and prophetic, anarchy soft rock.”
Katy spent her first years in New York waiting tables in the back of a popular anti-folk bar, soaking up satirical sad songs by regulars and drop ins like Regina Spector and Margaret Glaspy. For years keeping her own songwriting a secret, she would act in the occasional play and sing back up for numerous New York bands to get her fill. Eventually, after some open mic wins and disasters, she would find a band that beautifully fit, setting her free as a writer and performer.
Katy Rea’s timeless songwriting and lifted vocals draw comparisons to contemporaries such as Laura Marling, Angel Olsen, Hand Habits, Julia Jacklin, and Stella Donnelly among others. Her debut EP, Same Kind of Woman, is a tribute to the resilient women in her life and their influence on her politics and desires. Out now.
