About Katie Davis:

About Katie’s Debut EP “Steal My Heart”:
Katie’s debut EP entitled “Steal My Heart” is an acoustic string powerhouse with upbeat melodies and vocal harmonies including songs of love, betrayal, broken promises, and new beginnings.

Joe Viers recorded, mixed and mastered Katie’s EP as owner of Sonic Lounge Studios. Katie is delighted with the final product and is excited to share her music to a wider audience. With the foundation of her debut EP, and a library of new songs ready to record, Katie plans to form her own band as the next step in her music evolution.

Music Influences:
Katie is shaped by her love of music. Her early life sound track like most kids started with her parent’s record and CD collection full of the easy rock of the Eagles, Linda Ronstadt and 60/70’s Singer Songwriters the likes of Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Jim Croce, Joni Mitchell, Bob Seger, Carly Simon and Carole King. The Carole King, Tapestry album had some serious wear by her mother but luckily her dad brought the record to the marriage collection as well. It was the classic Country that seemed to have the greatest gravitational pull for Katie with artist such as Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, Crystal Gayle, and Dolly Parton. Katie’s love of country continued with Reba McEntire, Wynonna Judd, LeAnn Rimes, Martina McBride, Faith Hill and Miranda Lambert. Katie’s big honorable mention influences go to Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Joni Mitchell, LeAnn Rimes, Jewel and Alison Krauss. Somewhere in-between the sound of these key artists is where Katie hopes to land someday, a sound that is ultimately tweaked with a sound that is pure Katie and uniquely her own.
