Katie Spencer

Synopsis

Katie Spencer is a progressive-folk singer songwriter and guitarist inspired by the people and her surroundings in the Yorkshire countryside.


“Drawing on influences such as John Martyn, Roy Harper and Laura Marling, Spencer creates modern folk music which owes as much to East Riding as it does to the American greats, with her striking vocals and adept songwriting backed by evocative and complex acoustic guitar. Indeed, recent demo ‘Warehouse One’ boasts a formidable atmosphere … to create a Western soundscape of which Ry Cooder would be proud.” John Doyle, Wake The Deaf
