Sometimes quirky, sometimes sweet but always earnest Katy Kirby channels indie folk, pop, and rock on her stunning debut album ‘Cool Dry Place’. Simplicity is hard work and Kirby has worked hard. Blessed with a rare sensitivity, Texas-based songwriter Kirby has already mastered the delicate act of making clever, multi-layered music sound uncomplicated. Her storytelling is open-minded, observant, and thoughtful – her voice vulnerable but reassuring. Fans of Big Thief, Feist and Phoebe Bridgers will most likely find a new favorite in Kate Kirby.
For being a gentle album, ‘Cool Dry Place’ certainly made a big splash when it arrived in 2021. Standing on the heels of singles like ‘Juniper’, ‘Traffic!’ and the title-track the album received rave reviews. Prestigious publication Stereogym named it “Album of the Week” and at the end of the year it was included in several coveted albums of the year lists. We are proud to announce that Katy Kirby will perform her first ever show in Sweden Saturday Aug 13th at Stay Out West!
