“Katy Vernon has done something it’s not easy to do: sustain country roots, go pop, and be distinctly original at the same time.”
Katy Vernon is a Minneapolis / St. Paul based singer songwriter. She grew up in London, England and has been writing and singing as long as she can remember. She moved to the US after meeting her future American husband on a train from Amsterdam to Berlin.
As lead singer for the group ‘The Camdens’, Katy played all over the Twin Cities. She was also nominated for a Minnesota Music Award for her song ‘Invitation’ which was competing for Song Of The Year. During a break to raise two wonderful girls she continued to sing with a fun 50′s/60′s band ‘Fab Tab and the Teds’.
Last year Katy picked up a ukulele and started writing again. Soon after that she met Jim Walsh and started playing with his Hootenanny at the Aster Cafe.
Recently Katy has performed at venues such as Wild Tymes, Amsterdam Bar, 331 Club and even The Guthrie.
Katy successfully raised over $3,000 to fund her debut solo CD. She is grateful for the support from friends and fans and excited to share her first solo release “Before I Forget“.
