Christian Rock Band from Rockwall, TX - Will travel up to 10 miles
MEMBER SINCE 2015
AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST
Katie Riley is a Contemporary Christian singer-songwriter from Dallas, Tx. She performs across the DFW area at local coffeehouses, churches, and special events accompanied by her sister Makenna. Through a classic acoustic sound, her music sends out a message of encouragement and conviction.
Not a native Texan, Katie grew up in Rhode Island listening to CCM artists such as: Twila Paris, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Michael W. Smith. She began piano at age 10, and was soon playing on her church's worship team, but had no future career plans in music. It wasn't until after graduating highschool that she really felt God calling her in that direction. (Or more like “dragging” as she describes)
"Music was just my side-passion. I never intended to do anything with it, in fact, I didn't WANT to. It was this special little thing between God and me. But one day, He said to me: write - so I wrote. The next day He said: share it. ... and I said No! Haha. A few years later, here I am! :P Moral of the story: God wins. Every. Time."
Katie went on to pursue music and in the spring of 2012, she obtained a Specialist Certificate in Music Theory through Berklee College of Music. She was a private piano teacher for several years, before deciding to focus on her own music. She soon picked up guitar and with the full support of friends and family started to perform locally. Katie released her first EP on October 28, 2014.
