Melbourne born Katie Cole has build quite a name for herself in the past few years. Having written songs for stars like Gloria Gaynor and touring her native Australia, Cole’s music was discovered on the web by Howard Willing (Smashing Pumpkins, Counting Crows, Sheryl Crow, OK Go) who desperately wanted to work with her. So now based in the United States, where she’s rather successful since the release of her country rock pop inspired EP ‘Lost inside a Moment’ it’s no wonder the UK was to follow sooner or later.
In fact her popularity in the UK is already increasing with two of her tracks, taken from the EP, being favourites in the BBC radio 2 playlist thus receive a fair amount on airplay. So all very good news, for the singer who’s currently gearing up to release her new single ‘I can’t Wait’ on October 15.
Described as ‘American Alt Country meets British pop with hints of Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty and a sniff of KT Tunstall’ this award winning singer songwriter is set to make a big impact in the UK scene. And we don’t mind if she does.
