As Katherine Priddy hits the road on her headline UK tour, she has announced the vinyl release of her widely acclaimed debut album The Eternal Rocks Beneath (Navigator Records) on August 26th 2022. Released to glowing reviews and extensive radio airplay on CD and digital in 2021, the 10-track album will be available on vinyl for the first time, with 500 copies of limited edition rose pink vinyl pressed and now available to pre-order: https://www.propermusic.com/navigator106lp-the-eternal-rocks-beneath.html
The rise of British singer-songwriter Katherine Priddy has been nothing short of remarkable. Having quietly built a growing following over the past 3-4 years, the 2021 release of her debut album The Eternal Rocks Beneath firmly cemented her place as a singular new talent on the contemporary roots music scene.
Katherine rounded off 2021 by hitting the road with Richard Thompson again, playing a joint run with Sam Kelly plus her own sold-out headline December tour, all of which saw her perform to over 15,000 people.
Priddy has captivated audiences around the UK and abroad, notably on a recent tour of Australia, with her haunting vocals, rich harmonies, distinctive finger picking guitar style and enchanting songs whose lyrics celebrate her life-long love affair with literature and poetry. Amongst her champions is Richard Thompson, who chose her debut EP Wolf as his ‘Best Thing I’ve Heard All Year’ in MOJO Magazine.
The Eternal Rocks Beneath brought her to even wider notice and reached No 1 in the Official UK Folk Charts and No. 5 in the Americana charts. The album enjoyed strong and continued radio support, including Radcliffe and Maconie, BBC Radio 2 Folk Show, Jo Whiley, Gideon Coe, Cerys Matthews, Guy Garvery, RTE, Amazing Radio, Tom Robinson, Steve Lamacq and praise from press across the board, from The Observer and The Sun to Uncut, Songlines and more.
