In her short career so far, Kaitlin Keegan already has a slew of impressive achievements under her belt: opening up Fremantle Folk Festival, supporting Alex the Astronaut, being nominated by WAM for the ‘Most Popular New Act’ award, showcasing at the Bigsound music conference in Brisbane, winning Triple J Unearthed’s competition to open for The Rubens in WA, and most recently inking a publishing deal with Mushroom Music.
Perhaps the most outstanding accomplishment of them all though is her debut EP, Sadisco.
“It was Nov or Dec 2017,” says Keegan. “And I booked a venue for an EP launch in Feb 2018 even though I hadn't recorded anything. I had no budget, but I knew if I set a date I'd get it done. My friend and keys player Brad Green kindly took on the job and helped me make the EP.”
The leap of faith and hard work paid off in spades. Sadisco’s five carefully crafted songs showcase Keegan’s quietly beautiful voice, one that can whisper, soar or just shoot it straight, as though you’re chatting with a friend over a morning cuppa.
That is the key to Keegan’s charm. Across the EP, she finds the universal in the everyday, telling tales that are deeply personal, but also endlessly relatable, and setting the whole thing to a back drop of shimmering folk pop. - Alex Grigg
