Founded in 2018, Vagabond Crowe quickly became one of the premiere bands on the Alternative Americana/Folk scene. The band premiered with an original catalogue of fresh, folky and soulful music. After releasing their debut EP in the fall of 2019, Vagabond Crowe began performing shows in North and South Carolina, and became known as a local band on the rise. After playing together for two years the band took a break from the stage and lead singer, Mitch Stewart, went back into the studio to create and craft a set of new songs that are set to be released as singles during 2021 and beyond.
After a year away from the stage Vagabond Crowe is in the process of creating something new and true to what the heartbeat of the music is, as 2021 is a time for the stage to be set for a new era of Vagabond Crowe.

Katie in the Attic is an indie-folk/ indie-pop singer-songwriter based in Angus, Scotland. She plays piano & viola, as well as touching on a few other instruments. With a variety of genres influencing her music, folk strongly resonates through her songs, inspired by artists such as John Martyn, Nick Drake, Eva Cassidy, and Damien Rice to name a few. Growing up, she played across the Orkney Islands, where she was involved widely in the music scene. Usually found next to her piano, Katie pours her heart and soul into her song-writing. Listeners have likened her unique voice to Joni Mitchel. The whole writing process is very personal, as she re-lives emotions and experiences from throughout her life. Songs tend to channel their way out naturally when she has something to process – and they play an important part in telling her story. Highlights for Katie in the Attic include playing her own set as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In recent months, Katie was discovered online by a BBC radio presenter, and has taken part in interviews and performances on their own live lockdown show ‘ChannelZee’.
