Rising Star Katie Kittermaster Releases ‘ Every Breath You Take’ And Answers A Few Questions For Essentially Pop
Katie Kittermaster is a singer songwriter from Kent who has recently been making real waves.

She toured with a recent interviewee of mine, Lucy Spraggan, and is about to release her new single, a cover of the classic ‘Every Breath You Take’. I was lucky enough to be able to ask her a few questions about what she’s been up to, the single and the sumptuous backdrop of the video to accompany it. Katie’s version of the song comes from a different place to the original and works beautifully.
