Top Tracks: Katherine Abbott – Wayward

We all feel a little lost sometimes. Those niggling feelings of doubt that make us wonder who we are, where we’re headed, and what really matters. They come and go all the time, a little moment of introspection before returning to normal. If life in lockdown has taught us anything however it’s that maybe normal isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Maybe that wayward sensation should be seen as a spur towards self-discovery, a message from the universe saying that there’s a better you and a better life out there waiting to be found. Having started out her career as a busker, singer/songwriter Katherine Abbott knows all about the transformative power of cutting the ties that hold you down and following your heart. Her new single ‘Wayward’ is a track that you can get suitably lost in; her voice like the warm glow of a new dawn, the soft and airy folk arrangement washing over you like a cool breeze, and the sublime acoustic solo at its centre feels the perfect reminder to slow down and appreciate the little things in life.
