Hi! My name is Katie, I'm a performing singer/songwriter with a focus on vulnerable and honest lyrics - I love anything raw and real! I am passionate about helping people to connect with and speak their truth through song. I'll give you tools to access that infinite creative energy within you at all times, teach you how to put your ideas into structure, and help you write catchy, memorable melodies (just to name a few things!)

I have been writing songs from the time I was 12 and grew up playing music and taking voice, songwriting, and guitar lessons. I went to college for a degree in Songwriting at Belmont University in Nashville and Berklee College of Music Online. While in Nashville, I worked with and was mentored by industry professionals, recorded an EP and an album, was a finalist in the 2015 ASCAP Writer's Showcase, and a finalist in the 2016 American Songwriting Awards. I have shared the stage with John Paul White of the Civil Wars, #1 writer Natalie Hemby, and have played festivals alongside Trevor Hall, Mike Love, and Dwight Yoakam. I also play music to farm animals in my free time, which I can tell you more about later :)

I would love to work with you and help you step into your full potential as a writer!
