She hosts her own popular podcast, Before the Light Goes Out, which appeared in the Top Ten best music podcasts by the Guardian. Kathryn tutors at Arvon and Moniack Mhor, and writes with many diverse artists around the world including Paul Weller, Chris Difford, Ed Harcourt, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Jonathan Brookes, Louise Goffin and Michele Stodart. She is the only female songwriter included in the Top Ten list of best Liverpool songwriters of all time.

Her latest album, with artist Withered Hand, titled Willson Williams, is out this April.
