Katie Kim

Mood is central to the expansive musical landscape of Katie Kim. Darkened corners, icy atmospheres and hypnotic knife edge soundscapes. Piano chords stretch to infinity, silence is employed as devastating punctuation, while the voice, in its salience is all the scattered beauty a glimmer of light can illuminate.

Cinematic in scope and tectonic in delivery, it’s as deep as you want or need it to be. A slow core waltz at the bottom of the ocean, steeped in gloomy ambience. Tension tugs at the heart with this euphoric exploration into the depths of darkness and light. “Holding my hand now the tides incoming/Make us a shield so the light won’t get in.”

Katie Kim has released four studio albums to date: Twelve (2008), Vaults Vol.1 (2011) Cover & Flood (2012) (UK release 2013) and SALT (2016) Nominated for The RTE Choice Music Award for Album of The Year. SALT was recently performed live in a series of concerts with Katie Kim and Crash Ensemble in its entirety, in an alternative reworked form, with arrangements from composer Sean Clancy for Crash. A live album is just finished being produced of this.

She has been part of many collaborations, including The WaterboysSean MacErlaineCrash EnsembleDavid Kitt and many more.
