Katie Buchan, aka Best Girl Athlete, has dreams like many other 15 year olds, but talent unlike any other. From
Aberdeen, Scotland, Katie’s enchanting voice and burgeoning song writing talent is truly remarkable. Not many teenagers care to be in the same room as their parents let alone play music with them. However, Katie is the exact opposite. Katie’s father, CS Buchan, has been a pivotal inspiration to her musical career. Growing up watching her father perform in various bands, Katie has always played a part in offering critical comments for her father when he needed an honest opinion about his songs. Charley began writing for himself just over the last few years, anchoring his style in contemporary Scottish folk, and with Katie’s involvement has begun to veer towards an indie pop direction, whilst firmly retaining that folk element. With her boundless enthusiasm for creating music and her carefree persona, Katie has already won hearts and Best Girl Athlete demonstrates a unique blend of youthfulness and maturity that is rarely seen in music.
