Artist, A word many use to describe themselves. However, a true artist is not something that one states about themselves, it's something that is recognised by others. You cannot help but describe Kathy Long as a true artist. Many other words also spring to mind when you hear and witness this artist perform; Raw, unique, real and emotive to name but a few.
Born and bred in the heartlands of Ireland in Co.Kilkenny, Kathy had a natural flair for music, coinciding with a raw talent, this flair had to only be nurtured. When you listen to a song like 'We're all human", You can feel the deep, connecting, universal language that only comes with a piece of music that is truly special. It’s a language that knows no bounds, that reaches into the very depths of who you are as a human, to your very soul, and makes you understand that we are all in fact, Human.
With influences ranging between Bon Ivor, Joni Mitchell, Norah Jones and the humble upbringing of country life on the family farm, you can hear every step, challenge, love and heartbreak ring through the deep lyrical content of this beautiful music. With an unfiltered and ethereal sound, Kathy Long is a one of a kind artist.
Now based in Dublin, Kathy is pursuing her musical journey through recording her first album and showcasing her art in various events and venues around the capital.
So, in the words of Kathy Long, "Time is fleeting". And in a world of such precious moments and ultimately short lives, It's safe to say that the musical world of this artist is worth your time.
