Show 166: Katy Forkings

Hello!

My last show of of 2017 was in the company of Katy Forkings.

A few things to know before we go further, she is a singer songwriter from Chelmsford, she won the Undiscovered competition earlier in the year and she is a member of the Room To Grow project (You can listen to the full show below) – so we had a lot to talk about.

Katy performed five songs on the show, displaying her songwriting skills which are mature beyond her years. Below you can also see two performances of the show, albeit with my shoddy camera work.

Here is the full show…

Here are the songs played on the show which include live performances in bold…

1. Queens Of The Stone Age – Feet Don’t Fail Me
2. Royal Blood – Figure It Out
3. Reverend And The Makers – Black Widow
4. Razorlight – Before I Fall To Pieces
Creativity
5. Different People – Picture Perfect

Find My Feet
16. Owen Williams – Winter In London
17. R Kelly – The Worlds Greatest

Katy also participated in the first edition of the fourth series of my hit quiz segment “50 Grades Smarter”. I say ‘hit’, mainly because it’s becoming folklore amongst the local music seen which they begin to dread. This makes me happy. Katy scored an impressive 14 points on a pop music quiz. Putting her stamp on the scoreboard…

Katy Forkings – 14

Show 164: 50 Grades Smarter Final 2017

However, only three could get to the final, and they consisted of singer-songwriter John Paul Elliot, Walk In Coma frontman Alex John Adlington, and The Dom Clark Trio (which two of them made an appearance). And it was a friendly but fiercely competitive affair.

Alex took the early lead after two rounds, steering clear with three points. This wasn’t to last long however. As from the third round John Paul Elliot clicked into gear and led the rest of the way – he was a convincing winner. You can hear the full show below.
