After the successful release of her debut EP 'New Gold' in 2018 - Melbourne Americana singer-songwriter Katie Bates is currently in the process of writing and recording her debut full length album to be released in 2020, produced by Lachlan Bryan - with a single release for her song 'Polka Dot Dress' in October. After an already big first half of the year playing around Australia and writing new material, she is now about to embark on an east coast support tour for acclaimed American artist Hannah Aldridge throughout October. In November, Katie will support Hayley Marsten's Victorian show's as part of her album release tour, along with some more Victorian shows TBA.
“Bates’ voice is soft, sweet, and very warm which tends to pulls you in as you listen. While New Gold has got that traditional pop country, heart and soul grit to it, the songs have a very modern feel, blending the eras of old and new for a new generation to enjoy.” – The Music Below (California, USA)
It's an exciting year ahead so be sure to keep an eye out on her socials for upcoming info on tour dates and new releases.
