Katie Kim & Laura Sheeran will launch their split 7″ single on Sunday 14th August in Whelans.
Two of the most fascinating & musically adventurous artists in the country have come together to form an unholy alliance this month. Waterford’s Katie Kim and Galway’s Laura Sheeran launch their split 7-inch single on Flaming June records at Whelan’s on Sunday May 29. This 7″ will probably be worth a pretty penny in years to come so basic music economic demands your presence!
Over the past year Katie Kim has been enhancing her ever-growing reputation through collaborations with The Waterboys, David Kitt and Donal Dineen. Her 2008 debut album Twelve was dubbed “slow burning magic” by The Irish Times. And as a “remarkable beginning” by Donal Dineen
As a long-time collaborator with Clodagh Simmons Fovea Hex project, Laura Sheeran was exposed to a world of free-flowing musical expression from a young age and this sense of fearless adventure is encapsulated beautifully on her debut album Lust of Pig and the Fresh Blood. State.ie hailed her newly-released debut album as “the aural equivalent of a Grimm Brothers fairytale”.
The single features the songs Heavy Lightning from Katie Kim and A Wake from Laura Sheeran. Have a listen.
