empty cup is the latest musical offering from Katie Rose, blending her lifelong fascination with sacred sound with wayward wanderings along the lanes of traditional songs in a combination she lovingly calls ‘folk-mantra’.
“Katie Rose is, quite simply, a superb singer and the inventiveness of these arrangements marks the maker of Empty Cup out as something much more than just a talented folkie tarting-up her trad repertoire with a few 'edgy' bleeps and beats. This is your actual English traditional soul music. ”
“Molly Bawn, her take on Polly Vaughan, is intensely appealing, a swirl of sound with the voice as icing, and her Quite Silent works superbly, ripping the song away from its past”
“With its relaxed and meditative feel, this is an album which will leave you feeling that the glass is in fact half full.”
