Katy is an American folk singer/songwriter based in Cambridge who has recently enjoyed a bit of local radio coverage. There is a distinct Irish flavour in much of the music on this independently released CD. Many of the songs seem to be just vocal and guitar but other instruments are brought in to good effect, including piano and violin. Katy's voice is excellent - clear as a bell, and like so many of these sort of Celtic releases there is much that is pleasing to the ear. Standouts to me were "Suit Of Armour" and "The Far Side Of The Sea", a story of a journey from Ireland to Australia with a touch of sea shanty. The main lyrical direction is setting ancient Celtic prayers to music. The exercise has produced a strong set of contemplative songs.
