From singing into a hairbrush in the bedroom of her southside Chicago home, Katie made her way into the spotlight with an incredible self-made career as an independent artist in Nashville. But Katie’s music is not the most interesting thing about her. A Licensed Professional Counselor and former classroom teacher, Katie Quick is a fierce mental health advocate, using her music and platform for a greater purpose - to inspire growth, healing, and self-love within the LGBTQ+ community.
Katie is the writer and producer of three, award-winning studio albums and has appeared on numerous television and radio stations across the globe, including ABC’s Katie Couric Show with Clive Davis, NBC, CMT, and more. She made her Broadway debut in Rock of Ages and is 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. She has also shared the stage with such musical legends as Peter Frampton and Nashville country artist Brett Eldredge, performing unabashedly as a standout solo artist in front of thousands.
Katie is gearing up to record her 4th studio album this year after an 8 year hiatus, with a fresher, more authentic, vulnerable sound than ever before.
