Katie's debut Blues Album "She's Ready" 2012
"Katie Bradley's arrival on the music scene introduces us to a very fine singer and songwriter. Her gorgeous, original song, 'I Hear the River', is one of the songs of the year for me, I get goose bumps every time I play it!
It comes from her debut CD which features an excellent mix of original material and very good covers and is receiving a great deal of well-deserved praise and plenty of airplay.
Katie is definitely an artist whose star should be in the ascendancy and I look forward to a great and successful future for her."

Praise for "She's Ready"
"Beautiful love song Katie. I am loving it. Tears running down the streets"
Mud Morganfield (Muddy Waters eldest son)
Katie's style: Katie's range is from explosive upbeat vocals to finely tuned down-home Blues. Every number is produced with respect to the lyric and the soul of the song. Katie takes you with her, her powerful yet delicate voice could never sing a song she has not interpreted fully as herself.
"Katie has a wonderful voice and very appealing stage manner, which generates a warm atmosphere in any venue".

"Katie's powerful vocal crosses the tracks from sweet gospel to down-home blues without ever sacrificing quality or emotional resonance. Katie and her band are perfect for any Saturday night or Sunday morning."
