Armed with only an old telecaster that's seen better days and her ever-impressive voice, UK songwriter Katie Malco has toured extensively with the likes of Julien Baker, Jenny Lewis, Bob Mould, Fenne Lily, SOAK, Laura Stevenson, Dawes, and The Joy Formidable. Malco released her debut album, ʻFailures', in the midst of the chaos that was 2020 - a brutally honest coming of age record that details Malco's adolescence, sofa surfing, and leaning on intoxicants to get through.
After a life of utilizing songwriting as a sacred and personal form of self-soothing therapy, singer-songwriter “Hannah Bug'' has finally emerged out of her bedroom and onto the stages of Philly’s most exciting, bustling music spots. The past few months have marked her debut as a performer sharing her unrelenting vision and deeply intimate, intentional lyricism with an audience. Both a gifted storyteller and writer at heart, Hannah Bug’s blissfully soulful vocals and spellbinding melodies tap into an authentic indie-soul territory akin to the likes of Banks, Corinne Bailey Rae and Carla Morrison. With her first single “Change of Scenery”— a hopefully lamenting offering of raw moodiness— just around the bend, the fresh and up-and-coming songstress is busy penning her own timeless records in the studio while uniquely and seamlessly carving a path for herself. Stay tuned for what’s next. You won’t want to miss it.
