#TuesdayThoughts: OJT with #Dreams & #Intuition

     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

#TuesdayThoughts I Won't Back Down

        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, BeyoncĂ©, Miley Cyrus, One Republic, Ed Sheeran, Carrie Underwood, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Diana Krall, Ray Charles, Beach Boys, Chainsmokers I think
