"And in the end, the love you take is equal to the LOVE you make."- The Beatles
Katie Quick's first love was music. From singing into a hairbrush in the bedroom of her southside Chicago home, Katie made her way into the spotlight as an award-winning singer/songwriter with an incredible self-made career as an independent artist in Nashville.
She is the writer and producer of three award-winning albums, including Be the Change, Valley Between Love, and Endless Road, and has appeared on numerous television and radio stations across the globe, including ABC's Katie Couric Show, NBC, CMT, Bud Light's Up for Whatever Commercial Series and more. She made her Broadway debut in Rock of Ages in 2013 and was winner of such prestigious awards as The John Lennon Songwriting Competition for her song "The Exit" which gives hope to LGBTQ+ youth and Album of the Year nomination in the Independent Music Awards for her self-produced sophomore album, Valley Between Love.
Katie toured extensively throughout the United States, and has had her music played on stations throughout England, Sweden, and Australia. She has also shared the stage with Nashville country star Brett Eldredge and such musical legends as Peter Frampton, performing unabashedly as a standout solo artist in front of thousands.
Although Katie has graced stages around the globe, she may be best known for her use of music in her educational endeavors. She can be seen with her guitar in the classroom, during professional development training, and speaking engagements and her students will tell you how much they love to hear her sing. Her signature, motivational live concert experience, The Fingertips Program, has inspired hundreds of thousands of students and teachers across the nation, and she continues to not only entertain, but inspire with her music today.
