Kate Lahey has been building a name for herself on the local music scene since releasing an RPM album in 2016 that landed on the longlist for the Borealis Music Prize. Her official debut, Feeling Things, will be available December 13th under the band name Weary.
The album exceeds expectation, and sets her up as a new musical trailblazer in the province. Feeling Things has already received the support and nod of approval from two local grants, courtesy of the City of St. John’s and MusicNL. It’s no wonder why, if you take a listen to the “Bruise” above. Lahey is serving up her own ultra-modern, brooding spin on folk pop.
