The Times

‘The DIY ethos of punk is back. Singer-songwriter Katy Carr shun’s the major labels to make music on her own terms . ’
The Friday Review - Feature on Katy Carr in The Independent

‘Katy Carr heralds the arrival of a fresh and unique talent. An eccentric and eclectic writer of sensual and sexy self -penned folk songs, delivered with verve and humour… definitely someone to watch out for...’ Dotmusic

‘At a time when the talentless rule the airwaves, it’s refreshing to hear someone who can actually cut it. ’
Team satan

‘Odd and brilliant. ’
Mojo ****

‘In the lost land of Paper Castles and white Knights this is huge. Trust me and go and buy yourself a copy! ’
Vice Magazine London

‘Refreshingly theatrical, the balance between light and dark issues is what makes ‘Screwing Lies’ so strong, an interesting new voice.’
Collected sounds

‘An astonishingly fresh début from a promising new talent. Let’s see what Katy can do next.’
Bleedmusic

‘Her natural dulcet tones are stepped in black humour - a real talent.’
TNT

‘Delicate songs, simple songs, clever songs, rewarding songs, songs that float, songs that pull you into their warm web…. rather horny. A fine fine album indeed.’
Organ Magazine - Press Reviews

Fresh from her debut concert at the Royal Opera House in July 2008 expect aspects of vaudeville, British folk and maybe perchance a little dancing too... Accompanied using Banjolele and piano you are sure to enjoy Katy Carr. for more info visit Katy at www.myspace.com/katycarrmusic
