Discovery: Katie Pruitt

Katie Pruitt is an American country singer songwriter whose new track Look The Other Way delivers a scorching message to a society that has let itself grow ill.

By Graeme Smith

Though this year has brought a lot of social issues to light, these systemic problems have always existed. This is the point Katie is making in Look The Other Way –  a prevalent culture of ignoring problems so long as they’re not affecting us.

It’s an uncomfortable message to deliver but Katie does it with empathy and conviction, accompanied by a folk rock ensemble reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen. Look The Other Way could wind up feeling as iconic as some of The Boss’s classic anthems.
