Katy Bedford

You’ll most likely spot me in the crowd of the latest indie gig or festival, doing some mad hectic Mom dancing. Otherwise, I’m the small spectacled geek you’ll find sitting in the corner of your local coffee shop, bopping along to a Brissy band whilst vigorously typing my little heart away. I’m a multifaceted muso, avid writer and photo taker. Something about the way that that music manages to grip a person’s entire being like an enchanting creature has always fascinated me. I am a Media, Communications and Journalism student who has had the biggest passion for music ever since I can remember. I was first exposed to the music scene at a young age via the likes of British bands - The Drums, Oasis and of course Bowie. My favourite genres include a mix of indie, folk, jazz and classical. I spend my spare time trying to learn as many instruments as possible, including the clarinet, saxophone, guitar and ukulele. I absolutely love writing and performing my own music too, so you could say that the art of music and writing has captivated me in every sense!
