Biography

Katy Carr is a singer, musician, songwriter and aviator. She has released four albums - Screwing Lies (2001), Passion Play (2003), Coquette (2009) and Paszport (2012) on Madame Deluce Recordings. Her fourth album Paszport was released in Poland by MJM Music Pl on 17 September 2012 and on Deluce Recordings in Great Britain on 11 November 2012 to commemorate both Remembrance Day here in Great Britain but also National independence Day in Poland. A multi instrumentalist Katy variously plays a vintage electric Wurlitzer piano, ukulele and banjolele which feature on her recordings with her group, Katy Carr and the Aviators. She has also produced a short documentary film called 'Kazik and the Kommander's Car' which opened her creativity to areas connected with the Polish Second World War experience. Carr’s dulcet and often haunting vocals have been heard everywhere from the Royal Opera House to The British Library. Nominated for the London Music Awards in 2012, Songlines Music Awards and having just received the Polish Daily Award for Culture as part of the prestigious Dziennik Polski (United Kingdom) People of the Year Awards, Katy is continuing to connect both British and Polish communities together through her musical performances, film screenings and outreach work to both the young and the elderly in Great Britain.
