Recorded in only 2 days, the Blackbird album couldn’t help but be inspired by the incredible live music on offer in the Big Apple. During her four week adventure in New York, Katie caught the live brilliance of the Hank Jones Quartet, The Roy Haynes Quartet, Roberta Flack, Dr John, Eddie Henderson, the Rebecca Martin

Quintet and a host of other great musicians. These experiences served to light the way towards her first Manhattan recordings.

A long-time fan of the Beatles’ work, Katie decided early on to restrict her album to John Lennon and Paul McCartney compositions. ``I am a great fan of George Harrison’s songs, but I felt that his body of work would be more effectively represented in a separate project which I hope to record someday,’‘ revealed Katie. ``For now, I thought we would be better served by sticking with the incredible Lennon-McCartney songbook.’‘

Her Blackbird album comprises 15 songs closely associated with The Beatles. ``I don’t think there’s a single musician on the planet who hasn’t been influenced by the Beatles in some way,’‘ Katie declares with obvious sincerity. ``Their songs are just perfectly formed little stories. They have the universal themes of love and friendship and communication and loneliness and passion. They contain all the themes that are still so relevant. It’s hard to describe but these really are the perfect pop songs.’‘
