The more we write about some of the younger artists that we book for Deer Shed, the more we realise just how much the world of 'making it' has changed.

One such case in point is Katie Gregson-Macleod who posted a short video of her tune 'Complex' to tickety tockety in 2022. Overnight the tune had 100,000 views, currently amassing over 9 million. She released a full version of the song later that month, she signed with Columbia Records and released the EP 'Songs Written for Piano' on that label later that year. She was named one of BBC Radio Scotland's 25 Artists to Watch in 2022. And "Complex" was nominated for Best Song Musically and Lyrically at the 2023 Ivor Novello awards. It now has 40 million+ Spotify listens. Phew!

And another noteworthy thing - one might argue that the song works better on ticker tocker than it does with pure audio. You can read the lyrics, you can see the anguish in her face and ultimately you make the connection.

Anyway, we have really enjoyed listening to her music (beyond Complex) and very much look forward to her Deer Shed show in the flesh.
