Katrina from Katrina and The Waves - the rock n roll girl from the 80s with the powerful voice and infectious songs is back with a dynamite new band and a new album … and she’s still rockin’


Katrina was inspired by Motown and girl groups such as The Shangri-Las and The Shirelles and in 1983 joined The Waves (a Cambridge based band with ex Soft Boy, Kimberley Rew).



The band became Katrina and the Waves, and in 1983 they recorded an album of original material, at their own expense, which was shopped around various labels and sold at gigs. They were signed by an independent Canadian label – Attic Records and their first album Walking on Sunshine was released just in Canada. Katrina and The Waves had their first big break in 1984 when The Bangles covered their song ‘Going Down to Liverpool’. This drew attention to the group and lead to an international deal with Capitol Records.


The band’s first album was re-recorded and remixed. Scott Litt, who went on to produce REM and Nirvana, produced ‘Walking on Sunshine’. The first Capitol album, Katrina & The Waves released in 1985, was a substantial critical and commercial success and ‘Walking on Sunshine was a worldwide hit earning top ten spots around the globe.



SUPPORT ACT


"Koz Self is a singer/songwriter currently living in Deal, Kent. His songs attempt to describe the trials and tribulations of modern life with a wistful yet hopeful melancholy. His sensitive voice and gentle acoustic guitar will take you on a melodic journey, through life and love. Drawing inspiration from traditional folk and modern folk artists, as well as a wide range of popular music, some of his songs have been likened to Elliot Smith and Ben Howard."
