Katie Gallagher has announced the release of her new single Man on a Mission

Katie has steadily become a rising star to acknowledge, over the last 2 years of her blooming music career.  From headlining solo gigs in her own right to supporting credible artists such as American chart topping duo Underhill Rose and Cork’s very own folk stalwart Mick Flannery, this Ballymahon native is proving her worthy resolve as a force to be reckoned with on the music scene.

Currently a 3rd year student in The School of Music and Theology DCU, Katie balances her love of teaching and working with children, alongside the demands of a present day professional musician.

Her appeal as a live performer has become her forte.  Her delivery of her own back catalogue mixed with a few invited covers reflects her magnetic personality and musicianship.   Katie has an innate quality of making an intimate space feel bigger and she is both a charismatic and engaging entertainer.  Under the genre of folk-pop she also displays many other influences that inspire her songwriting.

Says Katie of Man on a MissionThis is a devious song but it also has elements of fun and mischief.  It simply tells the story of a typical ‘lad’ that everyone meets on a night out.  I felt a strong Latin vibe with the melody which has even shown me a different side to my writing.   It’s an energetic song that everyone can dance to and it has always been well received at my gigs.
