Katie Ferrara is a singer/songwriter from Los Angeles, California with a voice that carries "the fragile beauty of a blossoming rose and stirs the soul the way a gentle touch tingles flesh." (Allen Foster, Songwriter's Monthly Magazine). She writes music that can be described as "Soulful/folk" with her influences ranging from Dido to Adele, and Joni Mitchell to Norah Jones.
Growing up in a family of musicians, Katie has been involved in music from a young age. At 16, she performed with her high school chamber choir at the Hollywood Bowl and Disneyland. Around the same time, she began teaching herself how to play the acoustic guitar. While attending Pitzer College for a degree in psychology, she received voice lessons and began writing her own music in her spare time. Shortly after she graduated in 2010, she moved to the United Kingdom and released 2 EP’s: “When Love’s Not Around” (2011) and “Naturally” (2012)- both if which were recorded London, England with local producer Jonathan Guillaumat at Bark Studio (My Bloody Valentine, Birdy, The Coronettes), and State of the Ark Studios (Mumford and Son's, Pricilla Ahn, Emili Sande).
In the past year, Katie has performed over 70 shows in Los Angeles, including venues such as Room 5, Genghis Cohen, House of Blues and the Hotel Cafe.
