Biography

Sometimes you want to lose yourself in music that sounds alluringly warm, impeccably played, and irresistibly moves the body. Progressive neo-soul group KP and the Boom Boom fronted by dynamic, UK-born lead siren Kate Priestley (KP), have managed to create a highly innovative and richly enticing sound, featuring a command of R&B, funk, jazz, and hip-hop. Their high-energy live performances are met with a universal sound seduction mixing social commentary and overtures of unity with resonant, sonorous grooves.

Music has been an essential part of KP's life since she was a child, when she played lead roles in musical theater productions. She attended a performing arts school as a teenager, but it wasn't until she was backpacking around India in 2007 that she realized music was her true calling. Rediscovering her voice, she played at open mic gigs in Guatemala and followed her creative spark to Austin, eventually hooking up with fellow passionate music freaks who could match her diversity in taste and depth of spirit.

After being heralded as a Band to Watch by Austin Fusion Magazine and The Horn, Austin City Limits Festival selected KP and the Boom Boom for an Official ACL Late Night Show in 2015. Shortly thereafter, they were chosen to support Snoop Dogg at ACL Live Moody Theater and were selected as a SXSW 2016 Official Showcasing Artist. They continue to stir up a buzz with a multitude of energetic performances since releasing their highly anticipated debut full-length album, The Brave, in the fall of  2016. They headlined the Nightfall Concert Series in Chattanooga, TN in Summer 2017.
