Katherine Aly - Album Launch Party at Sneaky Petet's
73 Cowgate, Edinburgh EH1 1JW, UK
Katherine Aly is a unique talent with a genre-defying style based in Edinburgh, United Kingdom. Scotland-via-Greece singer/songwriter has already been championed by BBC Introducing, The Scotsman, Jim Gellatly on The Scottish Sun and Amazing Radio, The Skinny, scores of blogs and Spotify playlists and featured in Vogue Italia.
Katherine's debut album, Shadows Are Made Of Light Too, funded by Creative Scotland and released via Metro 13 Records, is an alt-pop soundtrack of anthropology, written from a personal perspective while reflecting on more global concerns, intuitions, and realities; heartbreak, uncertainty, discrimination, and anxiety meet hopefulness, serenity and a sense of purpose and unity. In this album, everyday stories of vulnerability are given agency through songs made for everyone to dance our troubles away.
Katherine is chosen to be part of the Wide Days Talent Development Programme 2022 alongside Bemz, Calum Bowie, Savage Mansion, Swiss Portrait, Cyrano and Chef. Her releases so far include the singles Glow & Ignite (Single of the Week BBC Radio Scotland's Afternoon Show) and Pariah, whose anti-discrimination video got nominated for Music Video of the Year by the Weekender Mag.
Katherine's gained airplay on national radio as well as stations in the United States of America, Canada, France, Spain, South Africa, Hong Kong and as far afield as Australia and got nominated for Best Female Artist on the Online Radio Awards 2020.
