BIMM Live 2018: Katie O’Connor

23rd May 2018


Describe your sound in 5 words.

I’d say my sound in five words would probably be jazz, r&b, pop, feel good!

What’s been your career highlight so far?

My highlight so far is definitely either playing in the Button Factory with BIMM, or  when I won the IMRO Christy Hennessy songwriting competition!

Who are you most looking forward to seeing at BIMM Live?

I’m most looking forward to seeing Mimi Lane because she has the most amazing voice ever, you have to go see her!

What can people expect from your BIMM Live set?

My set will be all originals, though there might be a cover thrown in there, but all songs I hope will make you want to dance and sing along to with us!

What’s the best piece of advice you have learnt from BIMM?

Always be yourself and to not be afraid to just let go and have fun! Don’t worry about what other people think, just focus on what makes you feel happy! Also, to always be on time and to always be respectful and polite to everyone you meet!

What’s next for the band/you?

This summer we are planning to do lots of gigs and getting music up online! Very excited about it!
