KTG has steadily become a rising star to acknowledge over the last 3 years of her emerging music career. Hailing from Ballymahon in Co. Longford, she is proving her sturdy resolve as a force to be reckoned with on the independent music scene. From headlining solo gigs in her own right to supporting Cork's very own folk stalwart Mick Flannery. Under the banner of contemporary folk-pop she also displays many other genres that influence her song writing. She has been described as a very mature lyricist and melody maker, keenly noted on Man On A Mission, Catch Me If You Can, Need, Let Me Know, Aphra’s Song, Blue and Home Farm to name but a few. Her words are uniquely inspired, like previous contributions from heroic craftswomen Joni Mitchell and Carole King. Her airs carry elements of Suzanne Vega and Wallis Bird combining warmth, drive and humour into every chord she delivers from her infamous red guitar. She’s very perceptive with her audiences and improvises during her gigs to please any set of ears. KTG embarked on her first nationwide tour in 2018 with her ‘Man on a Mission’ single release, performing in reputable venues such as Roisin Dubh in Galway, Harbour Bar Live Lounge in Bray and Tricky’s McGarrigles Sligo. May 2019 sees the release of her next single from the forthcoming ‘Searching for Magpies’ collection due for release on the 25th of June.
