EXTENDED BIO

Katie comes from a musical family and has been playing guitar since she was 12, when she began six years of lessons. In 1989, she performed her first wedding and has done countless wedding since. 

Katie used to make tapes for people as gifts in college. Years later a friend said, "Katie, my tape is wearing out. Can I have a new one?" She did one better and proceeded to record her first CD of cover songs. In the following year, that CD made its way from Ohio to Portland to Australia and elsewhere. Her next adventure was to record a Christmas album.

Katie's songwriting path began in 2003. She had heard that something good or something bad has to happen to write your first song. During a trying time, she wrote her first original song, "Time for Goodbye". She subsequently wrote more songs, most of them with a happier theme, that are fun to play at live shows.

After all that writing, she released a CD of all original songs. Katie loves playing other people's songs but this album is extra special because they came from her heart.

Like many people, the reason Katie does all of this becomes crystal clear when she plays for a live crowd. To watch people's reactions and see them sing along is priceless!
