#Growns were going to get the weekend started out on a vibe with some audio goodness from alternative soul singer/songwriter hailing from Vancouver – Katherine Penfold!

Today we want you to check out her latest single “Far Away” on which Katherine joined forces with Moonchild’s Amber Navran. The song details “the heartache of a long-distance relationship.” This is the second single from Katherine’s latest Sweetest Thing due out October 4th. “Far Away” is definitely on that weekend ride out in the car and just mellow out vibe. It stands to reason that the music is comes out this way when you understand Katherine’s approach.

I sat down and wrote the songs I knew were sitting there in me the whole time,” she explains. “Soul, funk, and R&B have hit me so hard for as long as I can remember. There’s a story to every song and a really powerful vibe.”Katherine Penfold

It’s interesting to think that all of of this great creativity being unleashed all by chance.

Between independent releases, Katherine moved to England. A 2017 invite to sing at a wedding in Vancouver proved life-changing as the wedding planner filmed the performance and shared it with Nettwerk. Shortly thereafter, via their Jazz label partnership with Montreal’s Justin Time Records, reached out to sign Katherine.
