Katie Kerkhover Eyes Digital Release
The music of Katie Kerkhover is this potent combination; infectious, and addictive. Her blistering blend of modern rock and throwback salutes to childhood influences, have Katie poised to join the top ranks of the Rock n' Roll community.
Her self-titled debut was released July 16 on Big Khaos Music. It will be available on iTunes in the coming weeks.
Leaving her hometown of Rockwood, IL at the rebellious age of 17, Katie was drawn to the stage lights of Nashville, TN. There she quickly garnered the attention of Music City's biggest bands. She spent three solid years as a touring musician, playing sold-out shows on the nation's largest stages. Katie was no usual sideman. Much to the dismay of the artist she was on tour with, she often found herself thrown into the center stage spotlight by a chanting mob of spellbound fans. It was obvious to everyone that Katie's star glistened well after the stage lights went dark.
Now at the youthful age of 23, with eyes wide open, Katie looks to establish her own presence and rabid fan base. With full throttle vocals, buzz saw guitar riffs, and trance inducing loops, Katie has carved out what she calls "her true sound." "It's really a blend of the music I've listened to over the years. It's the 'fist in the air', anarchy of punk, the 'f-you' attitude of rock 'n roll, and the fun, 'boy toy,' girl power of pop." Call it what you want, this girl rocks.
Youth, beauty, prodigious talent, raw emotion, and an unbridled ambition are the parts that make the whole, the proverbial "it," the intangible force that embodies Katie Kerkhover.
