Katie Ware takes you with the lovely film of her voice, the gentle strum of her guitar and accompanying bowed strings to a magical world where you tumble gently down the music hole. The Flame feels like the most exquisite burn and the message she is sending comes out like a spell. Her enchantment is such that the recordings match the live performances, each perfectly testifying of her stage name “Little Sparrow”.
Her music has been aired widely in the UK and abroad via the likes of BBC or Pure Radio’s internationally syndicated radio show Roots & Fusion airing an emotion almost palpable. Reviews and interviews include the likes of The Guardian UK. However, don’t take anyone’s word for it, the proof is in the listening.
You will find some songs haunting you pass the listening stage, like “Sending a message”, some tucking you in as only a good bedtime story read by the right person could, like “The hunted (A bears tale)” but none of the songs will leave you indifferent. An added advantage is that the song does not lose any of its charm when it is performed live as the audience recognises true musicianship in an impeccable real-time performance. Her smile and in-between conversations with the audience add to the enchantment wrapping everyone around her strumming fingers. The Little Sparrow train is offering this opportunity more and more as she multiplies her appearances across the UK and hopefully soon abroad.
