BA Songwriting alumna Kaity Rae has spent the past five years carving a name for herself in the UK Country scene.
She gained over 1 million streams on Apple Music for her debut EP ‘Speak’ and three of her songs have featured on ‘Folkstock Records’ compilation albums. Kaity has received positive press from the likes of the Evening Standard, Music Week Magazine and the Sunday Times and The Telegraph placed her in their top folk albums of 2015.
Following her debut release, Kaity released the ‘This Time Around’ EP which was promoted by BBC Introducing regionally as well as on Amazing Radio. Having previously performed at leading venues including The Roundhouse, Kaity supported acts including Sasha McVeigh, Sonia Leigh and Angel Snow (whose writing credits include Alison Krauss).
Whilst studying, Kaity played many of the gigs organised by ICMP including an industry showcase at the Hard Rock Café.
Kaity continues to tour widely and release new music. She's also been busy co-writing and has recently seen success writing with British folk sensations The Shires. Their 2019 collaboration 'New Year' has been aired on BBC Radio 2 and was premiered by legend of the radio, and previous ICMP guest, Bob Harris.
