Details

Acclaimed singer, songwriter and guitarist returns to the mill

Katie Spencer is a singer-songwriter and guitarist from Yorkshire who writes songs imbued with the Northern landscapes of her home. Originally from Hull, East Yorkshire, the grainy imagery of the industrial docks and sea-fronts seep into her deeply personal songs of nostalgia, loss and love.

The music, and most notably her guitar playing stems from a time when the steel-stringed instrument was truly finding its voice. Artists like Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and perhaps most evidently John Martyn, flow into her sound, carrying with them the warmth and idealism of the early 70's folk and songwriter movements.

The release of her debut album Weather Beaten (2019) made it clear to the world that the music is a sound of her own, and a sound that speaks of the present. Voices from the press praised the LP for its unique song-craft and spell-binding musicianship, as she brought together fans of music from all backgrounds and all walks of life.

"Katie's guitar playing has echoes of my dear friend the late great Bert Jansch. Like a musical weaver she threads her poetic lyrics through the guitar's strings and produces little tapestries of song" - Ralph McTell

"The way Katie plays is never contrived, showy or imitative; it sounds true...a world-class folk guitarist" - fRoots
