KTG, at just 22, has spent what already feels like a lifetime in music. Completing her first nationwide tour of Ireland in 2018 in support of the release of her single ‘Man On A Mission’, which placed at No.17 in the iTunes official download charts February ’18, before releasing her next single ‘Blue’ this time placing at No.2 on the iTunes Singer-Songwriter charts for 3 weeks behind George Ezra’s ‘Shotgun’ August ’18!
Having been compared to legends past and present like Joni Mitchel, Carole King, Suzanne Vega and Wallis Bird, her passion for performing and touring has allowed audiences to absorb her energetic live show at many of Ireland’s top venues including Coughlans Live (Cork), Roisin Dubh (Galway), The Spirit Store (Louth), Harbour Bar (Wicklow), Whelans (Dublin) to name only a tiny sample.
KTG’s music has taken her to national and international radio, her original track ‘Yesterday’ was released as a charity single in aid of the DCU Dementia Research Unit, and she performed it live to a listening audience in the hundreds of thousands on Today With Sean O’Rourke on RTE Radio 1, she was invited to perform at the Other Voices: ANAM showcase alongside Tebi Rex, Mango x Mathman and Delorentos and even had the pleasure of performing for President of Ireland Michael D Higgins and his wife Sabina.
Online KTG has amassed almost 200,000 video views on her originals and covers.
KTG now takes her music to an entirely new level of depth, sophistication and maturity with the release of her debut mini-album ‘Searching For Magpies’. Calling upon the experience and expertise of Beardfire Studio producers David Virgin, Rohan Healy and Al Quiff, KTG worked closely with the father and sons production team to bring her wonderfully crafted songs to life in the studio. In their collective six decades of musical experience, David, Rohan & Al, have worked – on stage or in studio – with the likes of Nick Cave, INXS, Leslie Dowdall (In Tua Nua), Mary Black, The Cruel Sea, RUNAH, Patricia Lalor, Ciaran Moran, Moylan, Cat Power, Billy Bragg and Lloyd Cole, to name but a few, and KTG’s ‘Searching For Magpies’ stands shoulder to shoulder with any of the names there mentioned.
‘Searching For Magpies’ is out September 2019 via Beardfire Music, and the first single ‘Don’t Tell My Mother’ is out now.
