You might remember her from RTE 2s- groundbreaking and award-winning docu-drama Connected, from playing one of many Irish festivals or possibly as a prominent activist for sex workers rights – Lady Grew is set to launch her brand new track “Sixes” at The Underground this June 8th.
Her candour about her experience in the sex industry shocked the nation and she was catapulted onto the front lines of sex workers’ fight for their rights in Ireland. Lady Grew takes inspiration for her lyrics from experience within the sex industry as well as bringing attention to gay rights.
Her 2016 track “Stonewall” was inspired by the Stonewall riots of 1969 and directed attention to gay equality. Her new track “Sixes” is sultry yet catchy hip-hop reggae track and will be launching in The Underground venue, Dame street June 8th.
Kate McGrew moved from New York City to Cork City in 2008, quickly gaining notoriety as Lady Grew: writing and performing vocals for dancehall reggae/hip-hop tunes, releasing EPs, appearing on vinyl with Dublin labels Ghetto Quietly and !kaboogie, and making music videos. She’s performed in clubs and at festivals all over Ireland, the UK, Germany, Australia, and America. Her two comedy musicals “Sweet Pang!” and “Hooker P.I.” – which combine her skills of acting, singing, clowning, rapping, and pole-dance – sold out shows and won 4-star ratings at Edinburgh Fringe Fest and two awards at the San Diego International Fringe Fest.
