I want to be the most me I can be so that you feel free to be the most you, too.
Music has been a part of Katie Buxton’s life since the beginning. Her journey in song began with humming in the car before she could talk. Throughout elementary and middle school she was trained in voice and guitar and continued her musical training and experimentation in high school with rock bands, songwriting, and Berklee’s Five Week Performance Program, where she was a finalist in the Songwriting Showcase and received mentorship from singer/songwriter Melissa Ferrick and Sally Taylor, songwriter and daughter of James Taylor.
Katie moved from her hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Nashville, Tennessee in 2014 to attend Belmont University for Songwriting. In the fall of 2015 she was accepted into Belmont’s Bear House Writer Management as well as the ASCAP Writers Showcase and started recording her first EP. In April of 2016 she was one of ten to work with and receive songwriting critiques from Desmond Child for two days; the same year, she was chosen as a finalist in the 2016 American Songwriting Awards with her song "Painted Hearts", and in September 2016 played Unify Fest with Trevor Hall and Mike Love. The next month, Katie performed as a semi-finalist in the Music City Big Break Concert Series and just a few days later made her debut at the world famous Bluebird Cafe. With the release of her single "You Flew" in 2017, she was featured as a New & Notable artist on NoiseTrade and has reached over half a million streams on Spotify. Katie has toured the U.S. and has shared the stage with several accomplished artists and songwriters, including Lewis Watson, John Paul White of The Civil Wars, ACM Song of the Year winner Natalie Hemby and #1 writers Heather Morgan and Kelley Lovelace, and Dwight Yoakam. She is currently based in Los Angeles.
Katie’s music can be found on all major digital music platforms. Her newest single “Honey” with The Motel Brothers is out now everywhere.
