About Katie

After years of performing and recording as a multi-instrumentalist/background vocalist for various bands across the country, Midwest native Katie Day packed up her life (mostly instruments & Chicago Bears merch) to head west.  It was there that a series of heartbreaks, heartbreakings, financial crises, and other misfortunes led her to find her voice, put her foot down, and enter the studio to record her debut solo EP, “Burn It to the Ground”.  The opening line off Burn It, “Back when we were young, and freedom was the West Coast, and we were gonna take what’s ours and not let go..” is indicative of the overarching theme of the album. It’s a story of dream maintenance, of a refusal to fold. The general vibe of Burn It is one of lightheartedness, an ethereal ode to the passion and ideals of youth, a laugh in the face of a harsh and unforgiving adult world.  Deemed as “dreamy indie pop” and likened to Washed Out, Tame Impala, and M83, Burn It was written (with the exception of Zombies cover, “Time of the Season”), co-produced, and performed almost exclusively by Day. With such a diverse range of talents and a new EP due out in the fall of 2015, Katie Day is surely an artist to keep your eye on.
