About KATHRYN: Widely recognized as that Asheville-dwelling vocalist chick with the banjo and all the feelings, Kathryn O’Shea can’t seem to figure out how to write a song that doesn’t make anybody cry. Carrying a gentle optimism in her “poignant lyrics” (Encore Magazine), her distinctive vocals have been described as a “husky, low-toned moan” (Greenville Journal) with “a timbre as dynamic as Florence Welch” (Immersive Atlanta). Her debut record January 9th is a “warm, intimate collection of tunes” (Mountain Xpress) that leaves listeners covered in their own tears and snot but somehow also deeply galvanized and ready to wake up and fight the good fight again tomorrow. So, if you’re in the market for a good cry, go ahead and sign up for her Patreon ( where she can be found playing monthly livestream concerts, waxing poetic about the conundrum of being alive, and sharing mediocre photos of the moon.
