“I’m in love…with the music of Katherine Wheatley. A verse into her first song, I was hooked…I was totally unprepared for the absolute beauty of her voice and lyrics”. FOLKSPOKE, Barrie, ON
Arresting vocals, great guitar playing and vibrant lyrics mark her work. Every song evokes her uncanny depth of observation. With offhand wit and an infectious passion for performing, Katherine Wheatley has been captivating audiences everywhere she performs.
Katherine’s music has been used for television documentaries, series and films. She has been a featured vocalist on Stuart McLean’s Vinyl Cafe, as well as a musical guest on TVO’s Studio Two, CBC’s Vicki Gabareau Show and CTV’s Canada AM. In addition to touring across Canada, the U.S. and Europe as a singer/songwriter, Katherine is a member of the band “Betty and The Bobs” and plays guitar in Wendell Ferguson’s “Smoking Section”. She was one of 33 artists, including The Barenaked Ladies, Bruce Cockburn, and Sarah McLachlan, selected for FACTOR’S (Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent on Records) 20th Anniversary compilation CD. Her first CD, Straight Line, spent 17 weeks on Sam’s Top 10 Independent Chart with nine of those weeks at number 2. Her second CD, Habits and Heroes, featured a stellar cast of musicians (The Bands Richard Bell, Blue Rodeos Basil Donovan, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings Colin Linden) and received glowing accolades from critics and fans alike.
“As a listener, it’s hard not to sit back, close your eyes and watch the movie play. And man, can this serene red head ever play guitar”. SEE Magazine, Edmonton
