Katherine Evans is a 22-year old singer/songwriter from Hartsdale, New York. She just graduated from The University of Miami’s Frost School of Music with a degree in Music business and a minor in songwriting.
Katherine deeply appreciates every genre and has dabbled in just about all of them. Her first year at Frost, she was a jazz voice major. By second semester, she discovered her love for songwriting and decided to switch into the Bruce Hornsby Creative American Music program. She then joined Big City Folk Band, playing fiddle and writing eerie folk songs with great friends.
Her senior year, Katherine explored the electronic world of music. She joined the EDM strings ensemble, where she sang lead and wrote over original tracks with a live DJ, occasionally picking up an electric violin, and using a TC Helicon harmonizer to add effects to her voice.
Katherine received the Daniel Pearl award from Mark O’Connor in the summer of 2015, and a year later she went on to play shows at venues like The Bitter End, Pianos, Caffe Vivaldi, and Rockwood Music Hall. She was also awarded artist of the month at the Bitter End.
This past June, Katherine presented and performed at the Association of Popular Music Education conference in Denver, CO. Katherine is currently writing top lines for up-and-coming artists, while working on her own solo EP which she plans to release in January of 2018. With clever lyrics and an organic blend of folk-pop and EDM, Katherine has been compared to Lorde, Maggie Rogers, and Billie Eilish.
