Katie is a passionate singer-songwriter from The New Forest, England. She has been performing at paid gigs since she was 16 years old and has dedicated her whole life to the love of music. She started songwriting aged 12 and has been developing her compositional skills ever since. Recently she has completed a Creative Musicianship BA Hons Degree in London (2017) where she has lived for the last three years. She classes herself as an alternative folk singer-songwriter and loves the freedom this genre gives her compositions.
She writes her songs mainly using her acoustic guitar but occasionally writes with her ukulele and piano.
She has been performing at V-Dub Island Festival every year since she was 16 and in 2017 she ran the Sunday on the Grace Cafe stage where she was able to showcase some of her favorite local and London based musicians. Now that she has released her debut EP Winter in the December of 2017 she will be applying to other festivals to help spread the word!
She has also played her music live on the local radio station Hope FM in Bournemouth twice.

Debut EP - Winter
(Released on 11th December 2017).
This EP was originally created as part of Katie's dissertation for her Music degree.
As well as playing the acoustic guitar and singing all of the vocal parts herself she has also written every song on this EP. She describes Winter as an 'EP with a theme. All of the songs in this EP resonate many different emotions but all still connect together through the season of Winter.’
Winter was recorded at Abbey Road Studios where her producer and arranger Gabriëlle Stok was a student. This was an amazing experience for Katie and she was able to see her vision come to life with the help of Gabriëlle.
