She is an ‘Emerging Artist’ with the Roundhouse,
had one of her songs featured on their 30/30 album for 2013,
gained a coveted place in the GIGS : Big Busk Young Songwriter 2014 competition
and has had airplay on regional BBC radio as well as Amazing Radio.
Her music is best described as acoustic singer/songwriter, with main influences from country, folk and pop.
Kaity had her song 'It Is' previewed on the first Folkstock compilation album, Femmes Fatales of Folk, and has just announced her debut EP 'Spark' to be released in the Autumn.
Here are some quotes about her track on the Folkstock release :
It's perhaps not the done thing to describe a female folk singer as having a sexy voice, but then part of the culture of folk music is subversion, so it's a plain simple fact Kaity Rae's slightly gritty and smoky tone is just fantastic.
The way she sings It Is would probably have been banned by the BBC 40 odd years ago, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Danny Farragher
Kaity Rae’s voice has a different quality altogether, it sounds somehow like your own private thoughts; and I think that there must be a technical reason for that because a few moments in to the track, I realised that her voice was resonating perfectly with both the piano strings and the wires under the snare drum. The whole room seemed to be responding to her voice and asking to join in. Her guitar work, with its plucks and its slides is superb too, but she allows her voice to stand tall above it and to shimmer out and touch everything.
