COUNTRY and blues singer Katy Hurt will perform at The Big Comfy Bookshop Coventry in the city’s FarGo Village at 8pm this Friday, October 15.
English-born Katy, who grew up in Northport, Long Island, New York before moving back to London, has always had a love of country music and has been singing since she was four.
She has played a variety of venues including C2C, The Long Road, Isle of Wight, Chagstock, Cornbury and Black Deer and her new single ‘Sounds Good in a Bar’ is out now (click above to listen to it).
Her latest offering sees Katy reflect on the odd jobs she’s done from working in bars and cafes to working overnight shifts in petrol stations.
Daydreaming during those shifts and venting frustrations to friends led to the idea for this song.
Encapsulating a period when she struggled as a young musician, Katy says the song illustrates the sensation of acceptance, of changing the lifelong dream of selling out stadiums to simply hoping that you can entertain people each night in the local bar and make a song sound good anywhere.
