“She’s a master of her craft. Typically, the artist starts with a lyrical idea that she deftly fashions into an insightful expression of universal appeal, which makes her a creator of poignant and shimmering pop gems.”
Katie Rose played her first live show in 2011 at age 13, this young talent took the crowd by surprise performing unique covers of Ingrid Michaelson and even Adele. From the moment she stepped on that first stage, Katie knew music was her passion and there was no looking back. Shortly after that first show, Katie Rose started experimenting with writing her own songs and discovered an even greater love than performing. Combining her unique and relatable songs with her surprisingly funny bits, Katie had begun to find her beat, and she was only getting started.
Turning her journey of self-discovery into music; the then 17 year old, wrote the album, Everything Yesterday. With the help of Eric Rickert and Jeff Leonard at Ocean Industries Studios, her songs became an anthem that Allen Foster from AXS calls, “music that lifts her fans up and makes them feel alive and eager to take on life”. Her collaboration with Jump Little Children’s, Jay Clifford on the song “Wonder”, prompted Magnet Magazine to gush, “Clean, crisp production brings out the best in Rose’s curious, beautiful voice and Jay Clifford’s gigantic string arrangements.”
Ever refining her solo show in her hometown of Charleston, SC, Katie toured in 2017 with platinum selling artist Howie Day, followed by a tour with nationally acclaimed band, Jump Little Children. She released a live EP, I Am, on Noisetrade from her Jump Tour November of 2017. In 2018 she toured with Carbon Leaf, opened again for JLC, and even did a mini tour Vienna Teng. She also released her single, “Don't Hold Me Down” which was featured on SceneSC's 2018 Sampler. Katie Rose looks forward to spending 2019 writing & recording, touring and sharing the musical love. With the release of her new single, "Beginnings", which was called “a warm reminder that nobody is alone” on the premiere on Popmatters, she is doing just that. She hopes to continue connecting with people through her relatable songs and quirky banter.
