Katnes – Born To Make You Happy (Spotify)

“An intoxicating blend of Americana Folk & Nordicana 'Born To Make You Happy' will appeal to a wide audience who appreciate beautifully constructed songs with a twist of Nashville. If this is the first time you have heard the uniquely melodic & hypnotic voice of 'Katnes' you are in for a real treat. The quality of her vocals will remind you of several huge country/pop stars of yesteryear such as Patsy Cline & Shania Twain, yet the song also has a current, contempory feel. You will fall in love with Katnes. Guaranteed.”

Kati Niemi, who records as Katnes, is an independent singer-songwriter who combines Nordic soundscapes and Finnish melancholy with americana country music. The end result is fresh indie-folk or what Norwegians call Nordicana. Katnes has been strongly influenced by vocalists like Adele, Birdy and Sara Bareilles. Combining those influences into her own unique voice and the tasty fingerstyle guitar playing of Petri Kuusela (Lanai), we can hear such warm, open and tasteful modern folk emerging from Finland.Kati

Katnes – Drop The Mask (Spotify)

“Deeply emotional singing performance that barely reveals the artist's inner thoughts. We all more or less use to wear "masks" in order to hide our vulnerabilities. Do you have the courage to drop that mask and accept reality as it is?!”

-Nagamag.com

Drop the Mask’ is about seeing people as a whole, without anything covering their flaws and uncertainties. It is an encouragement to show yourself and be true to who you are. This acoustic ballad showcases Kati’s abilities as a songwriter and as an artist growing into her own. Her music is approachable, written with a certain intentionality to the atmosphere it creates. A mixture of acoustic guitar and beautiful melodies easily conjure images of the misty forests and lakes of Finland – even if only ever seen in pictures.
