Katie Thompson is a versatile and prolific alt-country artist hailing from the West Coast of New Zealand. Channelling the timeless fragility of folk, while embodying the visceral energy of genres the likes of Americana, country, rock and blues.

While feeling comfortably at home within the walls of the recording studio, Katie is a stunning live performer who really brings her music to life in a personal and dynamic way, as portrayed within the many live sessions available online and as experienced by the audience of her frequent live showcases.

On a stage, Katie is able to bridge the typical divide between the artist and the audience, embracing the crowd with the intimacy of her storytelling, as well as with her elegant, understated arrangements that can be tastefully bare, or richly uplifting, depending on the mood of the song.

Katie has 2 full-length albums under her belt, as well as a live EP. She is set to release her 3rd full length studio album this year, recorded with award winning producer Ben Edwards at The Sitting Room, Lyttelton.
