“Not a Proper Girl’ is a sophisticated, introspective and beautifully put together, and places Kate Owen on the map as an artist to watch.”
– NZ Musician

A singer with a poetic, restrained intensity, Kate Owen released her debut album Not A Proper Girl in 2020, recorded with Ben Edwards (The Sitting Room, Lyttelton), of Marlon Williams, Delaney Davidson and Aldous Harding legacy.

Not A Proper Girl showcased Owen’s songs with rich textures including synth and strings, and strong rhythmic pulses from live kits and drums machines, with a sound that has been likened to PJ Harvey, Anna Calvi and Sharon Van Etten.

 “Not a Proper Girl feels cohesive and coherent… She deserves to be heard and seen.”
– Graham Reid, Elsewhere
