Album Review: Katy J Pearson – Return

Posted on 11 Nov 2020 at 8:09am

Katy J Pearson justifies the long road on debut album Return.

The word ‘indie’ has gone through many re-evaluations over the years; from its origins as music released on an independent record label to becoming a catch-all phrase for anything with guitars. Katy J Pearson can lay a claim to being ‘indier’ than most.

Nearly four years ago, Pearson and her brother had dalliances with the music industry after the pair were picked up by a major label. Yet they soon fell foul of the machinations and pressures required to work with a music behemoth.

Chastened by the experience, she honed her craft as a solo artist and wrote a catalogue of songs between her parents’ house in Gloucestershire, her own bedroom in Bristol and a local community arts centre, all the while touring as a support act to Cass McCombs and Olden Yolk among others.

These wares caught the attention of Heavenly Records, who financed the release of this album (hence Return) and gave Katy J Pearson the space to develop at her own pace. If nothing else, she deserves kudos for buckling down and finding her own voice (hence indie). Happily, there is much else to praise.
