Katy started her vocal training at the age of 18 at Colchester institute where she achieved a Distinction in popular music performance. Katy then moved to London to study a Diploma at Tech Music Schools where she was then successfully accepted to undergo a degree in popular music (specialising in vocals) where she graduated in 2010.
During her time in London, Katy became a session singer for the BBC and ITV doing backing vocals for artists on shows such as The National Lottery, Blue Peter, Fame Academy and featuring in the world cup advert in 2010 for The SUN newspaper.
Katy has always had a passion for songwriting and performing. During her years at University she formed her band TIGRESS.
TIGRESS released their debut EP 'Human' on 13 November 2015. It was co-produced by You Me at Six guitarist Max Helyer and John Mitchell at Outhouse Studios in Reading and mixed by Romesh Dodangoda. The band's first show was performing at the Vans Warped Tour UK kick-off party at the Brooklyn Bowl in London on 14 September 2015. This was followed by a UK tour with Metro Station and a slot at the Vans Warped Tour UK at Alexandra Palace, London on 18 October 2015.
In support of the 'Human' EP release, 2016 saw TIGRESS go out on a short headline tour in June which included a sold out show in the band's hometown of Chelmsford. In late 2016, the band went into Middle Farm Studios to record their 'Like It Is 'EP with Peter Miles.
In March 2017 the band went on a 2 month tour of the UK and mainland Europe visiting 12 countries with rock band Counterfeit . On 12 May 2017, the band released the 'Like It Is' EP. This was followed by a set at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton, performing with Green Day at British Summer Time in Hyde Park and a tour of Russia and Eastern Europe with Billy Talent.
