Their passion for great traditional well-crafted songs with strong vocals soon led them to form the duo. Initially they performed acoustically in their local town but have since spread on to the London music scene.
As a duo they play a variety of instruments mixing up their sound for each song. Their stripped back live sound consists of acoustic guitars, bass, cajon, percussion and they often use their guitars as drums which adds a great dynamic to the sound.
On occasion Katie Plus Juan are accompanied by K+J band, a team of great musicians that bring a new, fuller interpretation to their songs.
They released their debut album (Tom’s Garden) in 2017 to a great review from Headliner Magazine. Their follow up EP (Equals) was released in 2018 with a successful launch gig at the 229 Venue in Great Portland Street.
