'The KGB are complex, highly intelligent, inspired and fresh'.


''Homefront EP' is a concise and inventive introduction to the KGB's startling sensual world. If you're a Kate Bush, Nick Drake or Richard Walters fan you'll love losing yourself inside'.

"Beautiful, edgy and thoughtfully arranged songs told with originality, conviction and class."
Reg Meuross.

‘Kate Garrett writes brilliantly crafted contemporary songs that come deep from the heart of an ancient English psyche. I was lucky enough to catch her new bands debut performance in a candle lit church hall in the small Oxfordshire village of Cumnor. A packed audience that crossed generation listened enchanted and spell bound as she played an emotionally charged but never overstated set full of songs about love and hope  and  of course the greatest bird of the all the Wren’. Simon Emmerson

‘Kate’s voice is soothing and soulful, with lyrics that will enchant you’ Wessex Muse Magazine

'It's great to hear an ostensibly "acoustic" act work up something so strange and dangerous in order to take the listener somewhere new'.

Kate Garrett, former Mystic, now fronts an unusual trio. Her vocal is smooth, sometimes reminiscent of Kate Bush, her guitar playing accomplished.

Kate Garrett - Review of Vertigo from Westworld Magazine
From rousing tracks Coming home and When is the man through to more heavy and heady numbers like Star, kate asserts her powerful and eclectic voice to create an album of personal yet transcendant themes.

Kate Garrett - Vertigo Album Launch at The Wheatsheaf
Upstairs at the Wheatsheaf is an eminently suitable place for local songstress Kate Garrett to launch her self-released grower of a debut album, ‘Vertigo’. Roomy but intimate, filled with friends and fans it becomes even cosier, and when the house party garrulousness is hushed a very personal setting to hear Kate’s lovely voice.

Kate Garrett "Coming Home" (Wild South West Single)
So there we were, compiling our top twenty Oxford songs of the decade, marvelling at Kate Garrett’s sensual vocals on The Mystics’ classic debut, ‘Dead’, and wondering what became of the lass. The very next day she’s up in the office proffering her own debut CD. Hmmm. Just thought we’d let you in on the crazy world we inhabit. The excitement never stops.
