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. At age 14, she met another talented singer, Nina Murchison and they joined forces to form the singer/songwriter duo Katina Rose. The girls were known for their powerful harmonies and strong friendship, but sadly, not everything can last. After a 9-month trip around the U.S. where Rose performed in different cities like, L.A., San Francisco, San Diego, and Nashville, the two ended things. The breakup sent Rose into a downward spiral of self-doubt and anger. With the help of music she was able to pull herself out of that dark hole and begin the next step in her growth.
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 has embarked as the direct support act on a 25 date east coast and Midwest tour with platinum selling artist Howie Day, followed by a tour with nationally acclaimed band, Jump Little Children. In addition to her moving solo shows featuring Katie on both piano and guitar, she is also backed by her four-piece band. Their full band shows bring an added depth to the songs and inevitably bring the crowds to their feet, especially during upbeat songs like Take Me Away. Katie Rose looks forward to spending 2017 touring and sharing the musical love, while eating lots of cookies and reading Marvel Comics.
