Katie J White (WA)

Saturday 10th January, 9pm. Free entry

Katie J White has just taken out the 2016 West Australian Music Industry (WAMI) Song Of The Year Award for the Blues and Roots category with her song 'River'. 'Warrior', another track of her EP, was also nominated this year, following a double nomination in 2015 with her song 'Gypsy'. This makes three out of five tracks on the EP WAMI nominated, making it a very strong EP.

Tasteful, dynamic, contemporary and full of soul is the best way to describe KJW's EP. Undoubtedly her best release yet, it is the result of collaboration between some of WA's best musicians, producers and engineers. The album was recorded live at the acclaimed Poons Head Studio with Engineer Rob Grant and Producer/Mastering Engineer Sean Diggins in Fremantle WA. Featuring Scott Kociuruba on drums, Mo Wilson on keys, Daniel Hearn on guitar and Katie J herself on electric fretless bass and vocals.

Katie and her band have played all the main folk, roots and world music festivals in Western Australia over the past two years. Highlights included full house performances at Western Australia's renowned Fairbridge Festival, Nukara Music Festival, Nannup Music Festival and Perth International Arts Festival.
