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 got to spend a week in New Orleans also known as " The Big Easy". History permeates this city from the French Quarter to the Garden District and beyond. The side streets, the French Market, St. Charles Avenue Trolley, Magazine Street and the historic homes have filled many a manuscript with ghost stories and legends.
Here are a couple of things I found that were not easy about, The Big Easy .
1. Where to eat,Bonjour comment puis-je decider!!! the discussions would start at breakfast on where to eat for lunch or dinner. The choices seem over whelming, but something that works for me when I travel is to zero in on location and the types of food I personally enjoy.

Olde Nawlins Cookery ( 205 Bourbon Street ) and the deli counter at Rouses Lower Garden District are equally worthy for winning top place for #crawfish. The La Petite Grocery Lower Garden District had sublime crab stuffed beignets and a wonderf…
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…
