Katy Vernon is a Minneapolis / St. Paul based singer songwriter. She grew up in London, England and has been writing and singing as long as she can remember. It’s been the way she can get out some pretty serious personal notes about the loss of both her mother and father when she was a child.
In 2010 Katy picked up a ukulele and this led to a whole new direction for her writing and performing. This was a turning point after a lengthy break from performing while she started a family. It was also the beginning of her embrace of taking the central role in a band as more than a vocalist. Learning how to play a new instrument and performing solo re-charged her in every way.
Katy’s heartfelt lyrics add a weight and poignancy to this happy little instrument. “I’m a singer of sad songs on a happy instrument.” Learn more about her at http://katyvernon.com/
