November 17, 2023—Acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician Katie Pruitt’s new song, “Blood Related,” is debuting today. A poignant reflection on complex family dynamics, the song is Pruitt’s first new music since her acclaimed 2019 debut album, Expectations (Rounder Records). Listen to/share “Blood Related” HERE.

Of the song, Pruitt shares, “‘Blood Related’ is about the incredibly nuanced relationship between parent and child. Aside from the obvious generational differences, we’re living in a very divided time. For some people going home for the holidays might feel isolating. I hope this song brings you comfort in knowing you’re not alone in the never-ending struggle to relate. It’s okay to disagree with the people that raised you. It’s also okay to just enjoy each other’s company and find simple things to talk about. In doing so, you might find a little common ground after all.”

The new song adds to a series of breakout years for Pruitt following the release of Expectations, of which NPR Morning Edition praised, “such clarity of expression and disarming intimacy—Expectations is aesthetically warmhearted even in its tensest moments of confrontation.” Additionally, Rolling Stone declared, “A soaring vocalist and agile guitarist, Pruitt is a dynamic new presence,” while Pitchfork proclaimed, “With stately ballads and choruses to shatter glass, the Nashville singer-songwriter’s debut builds into a record that feels deeply thoughtful and unified.”

Known for her powerful live performances, Pruitt has spent much of the past few years on the road including numerous sold-out headline dates as well as shows with artists such as Brandi Carlile, Indigo Girls, Shakey Graves, My Morning Jacket, American Aquarium, Lucero, City and Colour and more.

Originally from the Atlanta suburbs and now based in Nashville, Pruitt has garnered widespread attention since her debut. She has been highlighted as a Rolling Stone “Artist You Need To Know,” one of NPR Music’s “Slingshot: 20 Artists To Watch” and has performed as part of CBS Mornings’ “Saturday Sessions” series and NPR Music’s “Tiny Desk (Home Concert)” series.
