“Lovely songs beautifully performed” Boo Hewerdine
“Katie is a true poet and story teller in song. Her songs vary in subject matter wonderfully – from astonishingly intimate glances into what seems like a deeply personal world to witty, jaunty observations about all kinds of people and situations. Each is a window on a world, told with a poetic, congruent skill that sounds as easy as falling off a log. It’s not. Katie is fast becoming a master of her craft.” Julian Marshall
“Katie’s voice has a vulnerable, human quality which suits her straight-from-the-heart lyrics. Yet she also uses melody in a charming varied way, so the songs are also playful.”  Elizabeth Winkler
“I love Katie’s voice, and John Clarke’s skillful and sympathetic playing is a perfect accompaniment. Between them they deliver expertly structured, fascinating and delightful songs. Go and see them”  REG MEUROSS
Katie will be performing a solo set of autobiographical songs at SOULO 2015 Devon Thursday July 9 DETAILS HERE
ABOUT HEARTWAVE – KT Whitehouse with John Clarke:

Heartwave is the partnership of Devon based Katie Whitehouse and Kent man John Clarke, and is a unique meeting of musical minds.  It is also now HeartWave Chorus – a lively and lovely a cappella group.

Katie’s personal lyrics and vulnerable vocal and keyboard playing were beginning to emerge in the South West when she heard one of Johns songs online, and felt that he might be a kindred spirit.



“KT Whitehouse and John clarke are very much a duo of ‘today’.  They live at opposite ends of the country and collaborate via the Internet, but also their sound although traditional and folky, has an atmospheric and sometimes even an eerie quality to it.  
John’s beautiful and genuine guitar playing complements KT’s almost other worldly vocals that have that touching vulnerability impossible not to warm to. KT’s poetic lyrics leaves the listener thinking and wanting more. 
These two are Not only great musicians but also warm and lovely people.” RickFest Radio
