Katie Brianna was plucked from obscurity at the age of 15 when Paul Kelly invited her to sing vocals on the soundtrack for Jindabyne before recording 2 critically acclaimed alt-country albums and scoring a couple of Golden Guitar nominations along the way.
With her most recent album This Way Or Some Other it is time to forget all that. Her new work is a game changer for Katie, breaking the shackles of any previous genres or preconceived ideas of what people expected to hear. Recorded mostly live, the result is one of complete purity that not only showcases Katie’s astonishing voice but also her gift for song writing and the written word.
The songs on this album are very personal, often about herself and people very close to her. Produced by her label mate Adam Young along with a band assembled from legendary Australian groups like The Cruel Sea, The Clouds and Front End Loader and a stack of top notch special appearances, she has created a masterpiece that will stand the test of time.
This Way or Some Other has been nominated for the Australian Music Prize and in a recent Sun Herald article, You Am I legend Tim Rogers called it some of the best song writing that he’s heard in 50 years. The two-time Golden Guitar nominee is making her mark with this release and is finally able to get back on the road to play these songs live with her incredible band in tow.
