"A delicate, beautiful voice..." (Frank Hennessy, BBC Radio Wales)
"Music of true beauty and considerable melodic charm..." (Folk and Roots UK)

Kat Healy is a singer-songwriter, a painter and a poet, hailing from Edinburgh, Scotland – and a previously selected winner at the CalMac Music Awards 2016 - described as a combination of well-crafted songs, beautiful voice and delightful stage presence, “Nothing short of enchanting” (****FATEA Magazine 2014).
Since her previous releases ‘When You Are Gone’ (2014), 'Wolf' (2016), ‘Perfect’ (2017), ‘Believer’ (2018), and 'Advent' (2020), Healy has toured successfully throughout the UK and Europe, with a number of high profile gigs, including support performances for the legendary singer-songwriter Horse at The Queens Hall (Edinburgh), MacRoberts Theatre (Stirling), Adam Smith Theatre (Kirkcaldy).
