Katie Malco writes music that sits quietly somewhere between an aching, serene sadness and a hopeful determination. She mourns her past and lays it out on the table for all to see, exposed with twitching nerves. Armed with only an old telecaster that's seen better days and her voice, Malco has toured the UK and mainland Europe extensively with the likes of Julien Baker, Jenny Lewis, Bob Mould, Dawes and The Joy Formidable. Following on from self-produced EP Four Goodbyes and Katie Malco and the Slow Parade, which was recorded in a North London church with Grammy-nominated producer and artist Iain Archer (James Bay, Snow Patrol, Jake Bugg), Malco's most recent EP is a bold collection of piano based compositions recorded live in an old studio hall. The EP, Tearing Ventricles, was released on Alcopop! Records. Malco is currently recording her debut album, due for release in 2020 on 6131 Records (Julien Baker, Touché Amoré, Self Defense Family, Culture Abuse).
