Since Richard Thompson chose Priddy as “The Best Thing I’ve Heard All Year” in Mojo Magazine on the strength of her 2018 “Wolf” EP, her star has risen exponentially. Winning fans from Guy Garvey, Mark Radcliffe, Stuart Maconie and the late Janice Long and garnering glowing reviews across the board for The Eternal Rocks Beneath including The Observer, Uncut, Songlines and more, Priddy charted at number 1 in The Official UK Folk Chart and rounded off 2021 on Mojo’s Folk Albums of the Year list.
She is in demand as a performer playing Cambridge Folk Festival (where she won the prestigious Christian Raphael Prize), Glastonbury (where she appeared on the coveted BBC2 TV coverage), Green Man, End Of The Road and the BBC Proms. As well as sell out headline tours, Priddy has been chosen to support artists including The Chieftains Loudon Wainwright III and Vashti Bunyan.
2023 saw no sign of her momentum slowing; highlights included a single on Chrysalis Records as part of a LP of Nick Drake covers from artists such as Self Esteem, Aldous Harding, John Grant, Bombay Bicycle Club and more.
Katherine will release her eagerly awaited second album The Pendulum Swing in Feb 2024.
