Day 146 - Katie Whittaker: Pick Me Up

Updated: Aug 14

We featured Perth singer-songwriter Katie Whittaker's fabulous Etta James tribute show a couple of weeks ago and we're now very pleased to premiere a brand-new lockdown recording of one of her original songs. Co-written with her husband Barry, Pick Me Up is an uplifting country-tinged track produced by Perth's very own Joe Meek, Stuart Nisbet.

"My husband Barry and I wrote this song in 2011 with dreams of Nashville and playing to crowds in our minds. Many, many gigs later it’s one of my favourite songs to play, it’s a feel good smiley song written by a couple in love.  Stuart Nisbet has really done it justice and took the track to the next level with his masterful arrangement and guitar skills alongside a great band of Alan Sutherland (Hammond organ), Kevin Skelly (bass), Ali Pibworth (backing vocals) and Sian Monaghan (drums, percussion). I can imagine folk listening to it, driving around and singing along. I really hope it makes it’s way out into the world and brings a smile to someone’s day."
