I have had the fortune to inherit my parents love of travel. Since I was 3 years old my parents have taken my brother and I on vacations both near and out of the country. Renting motor homes to go camping to explore the Okefenokee Swamp, Florida Everglades, Historic Key West, scalloping in St.Joe bay, hiking in the North Georgia mountains. We would save our spare change for a year to gather up money for fun on a cruise! My brother and I were so good at this that typically we would end up with about $700.00 which is what we used to explore our port of calls!! Some of my favorite cruise itineraries have included, Key West, San Juan Puerto Rico, St. Martin and St.Thomas. Any of you out there with the "travel bug" know how much you learn and experience visiting destinations both exotic and simple. The food, the music, the smiles of strangers as they hand you a slice of coconut straight from the tree! The sunshine, the colorful architecture, the magnificent sunsets and o…
As many of you may have noticed I graduated from high school last May. Graduating from high school put me on the path full time to pursue my music. May also marked the release of my newest single titled American Wild. If you listen to the lyrics of the song you may notice I am speaking about myself! "American Wild" is full of energy, sass and a bright out look on life; which pretty much describes me. With the consent of my parents I am taking a gap year from "higher education" and am enjoying all the "on the job" training I can get.
I call my first OJT course #Dreams & #Intuition. Some of the challenges of this course are not being weighed down by problems, focus on being lead by my dreams, the intuition to make wise business-career decisions and act on them. Dreams offer one a self motivating energy but need to be rooted in reality. Intuition is that inner voice speaking dreams into existence. I am a big advocate of goal setting which keep my…
I recently was asked in an interview: Who am I most influenced by with my music?
This is a tough question to answer as I am
literally influenced by ALL MUSIC GENRE’s.
There is no one artist whom I have patterned myself after, in fact, that is
the last thing I want to do. I may have started this journey at a young age but
have always sought to just be Katie. Yes, I am compared to other female artists as
is common ,but honestly I listen to music from classic country to current
hip-hop and everything in between. I
listen to the lyrics, the beats and how production is done. I watch the live
performances of contemporary artists and all the awards shows! I am going to list a few artist here but by
no means is this a complete list: Elvis Presley, Tom Petty, Johnny Cash, Glen Campbell,
Dolly Parton, Maren Morris, Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus, One Republic, Ed Sheeran,
Carrie Underwood, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Diana Krall, Ray Charles, Beach Boys,
Chainsmokers I think you get the ide…
