“Katie Bradley’s arrival on the music scene introduces us to a very fine singer and songwriter. Her gorgeous, original song, ‘I Hear the River’, is one of the songs of the year for me, I get goose bumps every time I play it!It comes from her debut CD which features an excellent mix of original material and very good covers and is receiving a great deal of well-deserved praise and plenty of airplay. Katie is definitely an artist whose star should be in the ascendancy and I look forward to a great and successful future for her.”

“She’s Ready “ is The Brand new CD release from one of the hottest female performers this country has seen for a long time. “I hear the River” is just such an original and moving song it’ll stop you in your tracks and catch your breath .A major contender for song of the year, I think. The original tracks are written in collaboration with guitarist extraordinaire Dudley Ross These carefully chosen and  beautifully executed  ‘covers’ are dealt with such compassion, finesse and expression that goes to make the whole CD a totally unique experience. See Katie while you can now, you may not be able to afford to soon!!! “She’s Ready!”  – She sure is!”

 Katie’s Style:

Katie’s range is from explosive upbeat vocals to finely tuned down-home Blues. Every number is produced with respect to the lyric and the soul of the song. Katie takes you with her, her powerful yet delicate voice could never sing a song she has not interpreted fully as herself.

“Katie has a wonderful voice and very appealing stage manner, which generates a warm atmosphere in any venue”.

When Katie Bradleys music reached my ears I was impressed, very impressed, so much so that I invited her onto Wall to Wall Blues as my artist of the week! In my opinion Katie has a lovely, distinctive voice which is indeed a pleasure to listen to. I predict Katie has a glittering musical
future ahead of her.’
