Katie has been on a passionate musical journey her entire life. Always in choir, she was drawn to the piano at the age of 15. Since there was no piano at home, she began teaching herself on every lunch break during high school in the choir room. She then earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Music with an emphasis in vocal performance. Certain dark life experiences stayed with her to mold her writing into the gutsy, soul-on-a-platter type material. To date, Katie has released three studio albums, a DVD, and played hundreds of venues throughout California. Currently laying down roots in Sacramento, Katie has worldwide radio support, has opened for such acts as The Doobie Brothers, Tim Reynolds and Tommy Castro, and shared the stage with Barry Manilow. Katie performs in several formats, from solo to full band. Equipped with a powerful voice, Katie also plays piano, guitar, dobro and harmonica.
