Seattle based Katie Kuffel has the press' ear with her captivating sound and message.
"Pearls sounds like alternate-reality Regina Spektor, heavily steeped in the Pacific Northwest with bright piano and a gorgeous voice gliding, rich and effortless, through craftily constructed songs that balance whimsy and self-awareness." -Adam Finley, PopMatters.
"Katie Kuffel has been on repeat ever since I saw a video of her live performance. With her haunting voice and pensive melodies, Katie’s songs explore intersectional feminism, the queer experience, depression, and… well, life as Katie Kuffel. At first, her nuanced lyrics and tender vocals reminded me of Laura Marling and Jenny Lewis, but there’s something wholly original about Katie’s body of work, from her recordings to her live show.” - Pat Shand, SadGirlsGuide.
