"Katrina Burgoyne : White Flag"

When Katrina Burgoyne returned to her century-old family home at Gunnedah after a stint in Brisbane she found an extra resident: a ghost. Instead of haunting her, Ghost became the entrée song for her debut disc produced by guitarist fiancé Michael Muchow. Burgoyne, aided by a $12,000 APRA development grant, had spent a month in Nashville where she swung from the writing ropes. So it's no surprise she wrote all 11 songs - with a little help from Ghost co-writer Bill Chambers who added mandolin and lap steel. Chambers also plays dobro on I Wasn't Gonna Cry, a song that Burgoyne began at school and finished with Nashville singer/songwriter Matt Scullion.

At just 22, Katrina is a ten-year veteran of Tamworth pilgrimages but a novice at ruptured romance. She explores faded love from recent back pages in the title-track, penned with Lianna Rose, You Messed Up with Natalie Howard and in the finale Just A Boy.

But there's more to this disc than just journeys along jagged edges of teen torment: at 17 Burgoyne wrote Too Late For Sorry about a family member toying with suicide because of depression - a song that t first surfaced on the debut disc by Chasing Bailey featuring co-writer Crystal Bailey.

In Perfect, Katrina also explores the art of overcoming self-doubt, something she herself struggled with in primary school, but overcome late in secondary school. Similar demons are slain in Bones Jessica, a tribute to the young friend who stood by Katrina during her first break-up at 16, tempered by Chambers' dobro and Luke Moller on mandolin. Meanwhile, I Don't Know is a paean to true love.

Musically, Burgoyne avoids the pitfalls of peer country-pop pressure and delivers a more organic capsule where the vocals - not guitars and drums - reign in a sea of acoustic bliss.

The only pop deviation is her collaboration with Phil Barton on Wrecking Ball - a song that shares its title with so many.

"Music Network"

“Of the many young up and comers performing at the Muster, I was most impressed with Katrina Burgoyne. She performed on the main stage courtesy of her talent quest win the year prior. At just 18 she’s already a very polished performer and writer and I reckon she’ll be one of the artists to watch out for in the next couple of years.” --- Tim Holland, music writer, The Music Network - Tim Holland

"Bachelor contestant Katrina sings about her time on the show"

THE Bachelor contestant Katrina Burgoyne may not have walked away from the show with a new boyfriend, but she has found the inspiration for some new songs for her repertoire.

The 26-year-old songstress, who was booted off the reality show last night, said while she’d failed to find love, she is a step closer to pursuing the music career of which she’s always dreamed.

During her four-week incarceration on the Channel 10 show, Burgoyne was given only 10 minutes of The Bachelor Blake Garvey’s time - allowing her plenty of hours alone to hone her musical compositions.

“I went into the house to fall in love and I did. I fell in love with music,” Burgoyne told Confidential.

“She has penned a song about Garvey in which she takes an obvious jab with the lyrics “to kiss me on the cheek and walk away would only be a foolish move to make - you’ve never met a heart like mine”.

“I was in the house for four weeks and he had only given me ten minutes of his time ... I had dedicated four weeks of my life to this guy. So I decided to write some music about it,” she said

The Newcastle based singer, who is a two-time Golden Guitar nominee, took her frustration out on her manuscript book, writing two songs about the show’s main man.

“It was well known in the house that I was the only one who hadn’t talked to him since the first night, so being in the house with nothing to do, I found a creative way to entertain myself, I wrote songs.

“The songs I have written are about me being happy alone and it is going to take a pretty special man to make me sacrifice that.

“I did walk away with the top prize — I have two more songs I have written.”

While all 23 contestants on the show vied for Garvey’s heart from the get go, Burgoyne admits she learnt early on he wasn’t going to be her “twin flame”.

“I am expressive and I am a creative,” she said. “He wasn’t my type of guy.

“I need someone who is creative and inspiring ... he was lovely but I need someone who is a little bit more sensitive, deeper ... talking to him was like talking about a complex version of the weather and it didn’t inspire me. - THE DAILY TELEGRAPH


Two-time Golden Guitar nominated singer/songwriter Katrina Burgoyne has launched her brand new single ‘Worth It’ to radio and media today following her time on one of Australia’s most popular reality TV shows. ‘Worth It’ comes after two years out of the music spotlight and from pursuing her dreams as a recording Artist.

It took a reality TV show about finding love for Katrina Burgoyne to re-connect with her true passion of music again. "I went on the show to find love, and I did. I fell back in love with my passion for music" said Katrina.

In 2012 Burgoyne stepped away from the microphone to focus on her personal life, only dabbling in study of graphic design, photography and working on her side project, successful country music group The Fairground. Katrina had basically given up on her own pursuits of music. "I wasn't sure if I was strong enough to handle public criticism" said Katrina. "However after 12 months of challenging my own strength and independence I am fiercely drawn to jump back into the spotlight again".

This week Katrina releases her brand new single ‘Worth It’, a song about not settling for anything less than perfect. Burgoyne, writes of her love for being alone and her choice not to sacrifice that for just anyone. The single was produced by country music powerhouse act McAlister Kemp's Troy Kemp and world renowned electric guitarist Jeremy Barnes at Satellite Studios in Newcastle. ‘Worth It’ showcases growth since Burgoyne's past release cementing a more mature and commercial sound for songstress.

With an already impressive career in the Australian music industry that includes a top 10 Australian Country Music ARIA Charting album, ASA Country Song Of The Year Award, Australian Country Music People’s Choice Award, ISC honorable mention and a top 10 music videos on Austar / Foxtel Country Music Channel, Katrina is back and ready to further embed herself into the Australian music landscape. Confident, passionate and sincere … Katrina Burgoyne is a name to watch.
