Spirited and thought-provoking songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Katya layers guitar loops, sings, makes beats and triggers samples from her production on stage to create her eclectic genre-blending music.
Recipe: 150g melodic, soulful vocals; 3 tsp full-fat jazz embellishments; 1 ladle of electronic beats; a smattering of funk and reggae; 45g indie folk, softened; a dash of found sounds from Tbilisi, Georgia. Blend for 4 mins. Leave to settle. Results in a rich, colourful texture. A warming and at times haunting effect upon consumption.
