Katy J Pearson


Name, where are you from?
Katy J Pearson, I am from Bristol.

Describe your style in three words?
1970’s Texas Mom.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Kate Bush, she’s my idol and I literally died seeing her. She played a bunch of stuff I didn’t know and then 'Cloudbusting' at the end, a dream.

If you could be on the line up with any two artists in history?
Fleetwood Mac since they’ve been one of my favourite bands since I was a little ween - I used to have a tape recorder that had 'Little Lies' on it - and Interpol - only got into them a few years ago but that first record is so raw it’s unreal.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
The 1970s folk scene and New Romantics; both such an interesting time for fashion and music.

Of all the venues you’ve been to or played, which is your favourite?
My fav venue is Thekla here in Bristol - it’s a boat that’s submerged so you’re basically playing underwater.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Judee Sill.
