She caught the Katy...
— Taj Mahal
 
 

The Katy, a bluesy indie trio fronted by Memphis-born vocalist and bassist Cathalyn, and featuring Cleveland natives Ashanti Allison (drums) and Eli Hanley (organ), uses music to touch on a mix of matters from life to love.

Forming in Summer 2016, their loose, free style of play showcases the growth that comes when talented musicians are able to gel and find their sound.

 

 

Bands in the Cleveland music scene normally fall fate to comparison with other groups, but The Katy delivers a sound all their own.

Locally loved for their moody grooves and introspective lyrics, their debut EP Collage highlights a melodic, energetic feel; the kind of catchy, driven tunes that indie music lovers embrace.
