Biography

KP and the Boom Boom is reinventing soul for a new generation. Led by dynamic, UK-born front woman Kate Priestley (KP), the Austin-based band creates a highly innovative and instantly seductive future-soul sound, with hallmarks of R&B, funk, jazz, and hip-hop. KP and the Boom Boom’s high-energy live performances are infectiously danceable and inspire even the stodgiest crowds to shake their moneymakers. The band will release their debut album “The Brave” this coming summer.

KP began her musical journey in India after a mysterious stranger approached her and insisted that she sing for him. Despite his bizarre request, she humored him and improvised while he played tabla. Their impromptu jam session led to weekly meetings, laying the foundation for KP’s musical future.

Since that encounter, KP has never looked back. After traveling extensively around South America, picking up the guitar along the way, experiencing more chance meetings, and participating in a serendipitous open mic night in Guatemala, she eventually landed in Austin. There she joined forces with a group of talented music geeks whose diverse influences — combined with KP’s soulful vocals, eclectic style, and magnetic personality — form an aesthetic that is sophisticated, edgy, and impassioned.

The band made major waves in 2013, releasing a four-track EP produced by AJ Vallejo and debuting a music video for their single, “Feel It.” After being heralded as a Band to Watch at UTOPIAfest 2014 by Austin Fusion Magazine and The Horn, Austin City Limits Festival selected KP and the Boom Boom for an Official ACL Late Night Show in 2015. Shortly thereafter, they were chosen to support Snoop Dogg at ACL Live Moody Theater. They continue to stir up a buzz with a multitude of energetic performances leading up to their highly anticipated debut full-length album, to be released in 2016.
