Katie Kim is the pseudonym of Katie Sullivan when she performs and records her slowcore, ethereal, ambient folk/pop. De-tuned guitars and sparse piano playing, walls of loops and echoing vocals come to the fore along with grisly tones, haunting and experimental flavours for sounds, all of which is executed with subtle simplicity. Paired with a voice that reviewers and fans alike, have tried to liken to many of the high rollers making their mark today, but end up agreeing, that Katie Kim’s style is entirely of her own making.
Katie Kim has released two studio albums to date: Twelve in 2008 and Cover & Flood in 2012 (UK release 2013). She has also scored an original soundtrack for the 1928 surrealist Germain Dulac silent film, “La Coquille et Le Clergyman”, commissioned by The Cork French Film Festival, which she also performed with her full band, live, in front of a sold out audience. This original score will be released later this year as part of a multi media package.
She has also worked with artists such as Ed Harcourt, David Kitt, Halves and The Waterboys, who she appeared with on “Later…With Jools Holland” in 2011.
A third album is due later this year.
Roslyn Steer is a Cork-based music maker. She sings songs in circles. Her music has been described as haunting and melancholic but she’s never seen a ghost and would hate to see you sad. Other people say it’s beautiful.
“bearing nothing but songs from a unique and personal perspective, Steer gets lost in her performance, and brings everyone with her…A hidden gem” thethinair.net
