In September 2015, Katie met Kent Wells, Dolly Partons producer and musical producer, in nashville and produced her self titled EP Katie Bates. She worked with Kent for over a year in Nashville at Kent Wells Production, working on her songwriting and vocals. In the first month on SoundCloud, the song After Awhile received over 19,000 plays.
In July 2017, Katie started working with Producer 2tone at Blacklite Productions and recorded a new single called Naked. Metaphorically used, it is about stripping someone’s walls down and getting to know that person inside and out. Naked got great feedback from online radio shows. On September 14, 2017, she released her current single titled The One. She co-wrote The One with Producer David Snow at Little Hipster Music out in LA. Katie plays drums, bass, guitar, and piano. She has been playing in her mom’s Christian Rock band since she was 12 years old. Going through a hard time in college, she turned to writing poems and lyrics. Eventually she put those lyrics into song. With the help of Kent Wells, she found a creative home in music. Her inspiration comes from artist such as Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, and Stevie Nicks. Her ambition, genuinely positive personality, natural talent, and knowledge in music is helping become an artist to watch.
She is active on social media, connecting with fans and listeners. Follow her on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Spotify.
