Will send shivers down your spine, open your heart and ignite your positive energy. Her ability to reach out, engage and welcome you to share in her passion through music is one of her greatest gifts. Katie has a love for inspiring her fellow community members, and it shows. Some of Katie’s influences in music are; Tom Petty, Simon & Garfunkel, CCR, Lauryn Hill, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, CCR, Joni Mitchell, Florence and the Machine, Beirut, and Lykke Li, the list goes on. Katie’s music can be described as down to earth storytelling filled with humor, chant like energizing vibes and a combination of indie rock, folk and soul.
Her love for music began at a young age as she would practice her vocal skills in candlelight at the age of 10 in her bedroom and of course the many weekends spent with Casey Kasem and the American Top 40 as she would learn and re-record the many songs on her tape player in her bedroom. Later in life her deep passion for music creped in again when she was 19 she picked up a guitar and had the opportunity to learn some basic chords. The rest was history, like everything in life that Katie has approached she became determined to learn enough so that she could fake it until she made it, you have to start somewhere. Later she was gifted with a beautiful dream, which carried her for the next 8 years. This dream also brought a beautiful set of songs that were inspired and have been yearning inside her since to be captured and to be shared with the world. She did get to share her music through her seven years of delivering musical empowerment circles with the community and she is now ready to hit the stage.
Her musical dreams are to begin working on her first album and get to take this, her family and her positive energy across NL, Canada and then the World. As audience members once said “Katie is inspiring, connecting, relaxing, transformational and energizing!” the whole package. She is a diamond in the rough. Katie always believed that one can fall between the cracks in life and let life happen to you, or one can rise above and create the life of his/her dreams, she has chosen the ladder.
