Ladies and gentlemen, Kate Wintie!

photo2

Hey guys! We’re really stoked to introduce to you the newest addition to the Engineer family, Kate Wintie.  We’re very excited about recruiting this little lady, as she is quite frankly awesome and get this; she’s the first female solo artist ever to be signed by Engineer Records! It’s a new chapter for the label.  Kate is based in the seaside town of Folkestone and has been active in the local music scene for many years.  She is really excited to be joining us and had this to say ‘massively happy to have been recently signed by Engineer records. These guys have an awful lot of faith in me, and are willing to do a great deal, I’m really excited to begin working with them, and being a part of the family… especially being the first ever female solo artist to be signed to them, very cool’.

Kate exploded onto the scene back in 2009 when she formed an acoustic duo with her brother Andy.  She then moved on to form the hardcore quartet, Yamaharahara in 2010 and they toured around the country with bands like Jet Pack and Engineer veterans, IRIS. A massive love for live performance was born during that time.  Now she has honed her craft and branched out as a proper solo artist bringing her heart-felt emotional songs formed around memories and moments to the masses.  Kate describes her music as ‘humble, open, bright and powerful, with a slice of English modesty lyrically.  Her performance is also described as ‘captivating, emotional and overwhelming’.

We totally agree with that statement as Kate is an astounding live performer who delivers every song with such presence, power and raw emotion that you’re instantly captivated.  She has gigged and toured on the acoustic scene since November 2013 with some talented artists including Engineers very own Sirens & Shelter.

Her soon to be released EP is already generating some buzz around the local music community at great live shows and we can’t wait to share it with you all.  We’ve had a listen already and it’s simply brilliant.  Her EP is now available on Bandcamp  at http://katewintie.bandcamp.com/album/kate-wintie and will be released on Engineer Records very soon.

So yeah, ladies and gentlemen, we are very pleased to introduce you to the magnificent Kate Wintie.  Go give her page a like at https://www.facebook.com/katewintieacoustic or you can follow her on Twitter at https://twitter.com/katewintiemusic.
