Katey Brooks – Will She

“I don’t often like to give too much of  the meaning inspired behind a song, so as to allow the listener their own journey with it . ‘Will She’ comes from an intense breakup – that feeling when someone you love so deeply has to leave your life, and coming to realize that another human can not fix that – instead you have to find that inside yourself.”

– Katey Brooks

Truly delightful speaking with Bristol born Katey Brooks this morning, whilst she was sitting on a bus near Manchester.

How lovely she is, and most equally her new single ‘Will She’ which is warming us up for her album coming in the new year.

I will forever say the best part of what I do is meeting good people.
I know you will enjoy Katey Brooks  as she finds her way not only onto your playlist – but into your heart.

Stay tuned for more of this sultry soul as we flip over the calendar to a New Year.
