Ekaterine is definitely something a little out of the ordinary. Ekaterine taps into a long heritage of female singer-songwriters who don’t play by the rules. Forgoing the saccharine-sweet crispy pop production of a million or more female singers, Ekaterine isn’t afraid to show off her imperfect side, showing messy and cathartic emotion in a world which so often tells women to sit quiet and look pretty.
Her long sweeping hair and attitude-with-a-slight-edge is reminiscent of early Avril Lavigne, while her bluesy vocals smack of Katie Melua (who, by the way, is a fan. Because of course she is) and her determined creative direction rivals that of Billie Eilish.
Ekaterine is no stranger to having to fight to get her own way. A deep strength in her convictions from a young age, Ekaterine ran away from boarding school in Cambridge in 2012 to sign a recording contract in London. In 2016 her single ‘Love Insane’ was picked up by BBC Introducing and in 2017 she was invited to play the BBC Introducing Live Sessions.
Now, with ‘CHANGES’, Ekaterine announces a new era in her life, one in which she is fully ready to take up the mantle and use the voice she has always had, to speak out and speak loudly.
CHANGES is out 5th March 2021. Follow Ekaterine @ekaterine_go on Instagram
