Katie Kim with Crash Ensemble

Friday, 30 September 2016

This exclusive performance at ENGAGE Arts Festival offers an insight into Katie’s recently completed third album Salt, which will be released in October 2016. The event will give the audience a sneak preview of Katie's most anticipated release to date, with special arrangements for Crash Ensemble.

Katie Kim is the pseudonym of Waterford singer Katie Sullivan, who performs slowcore, ethereal, ambient folk/pop. She has toured across Europe playing sold out shows and has also played shows in New York and Canada.

Katie has a long history of collaborations with a selection of Irish and international artists including David Kitt, Adrian Crowley, Milosh, and The Waterboys. This collaboration with Crash Ensemble builds on Katie’s collaborative nature but approaches it in a different manner concentrating on her newly finished third album “Salt” which will be released in October of this year. 

The arrangements for this performance are composed by Dublin born composer Seán Clancy. Sean has been commissioned and performed by many of the world’s leading ensembles and artists developing particularly close ties with the RTÉ NSO, BCMG and Crash Ensemble.

Salt was recorded in a self-built recording and artist space in Dublin called Guerrilla Studios and is Katie’s most anticipated work to date.
