Since 2004 KatieBeth has been rocking it out in WI, and TN. With a voice born in rock and roll and stained by whiskey, her powerful energy on stage and raw vocal talent is blazing a trail in the music world.
Every KatieBeth performance is like a musical autobiography of KatieBeth the person. Start with her voice, a blend of rock and country. A style that pulls equally from her Wisconsin roots and her Tennessee years. And then listen to her songs. The lyrics tell stories of heartbreak, redemption, and hope. With every verse and chorus KatieBeth unleashes the raw, uncensored emotion of someone who has learned life's lessons the hard way.
But behind her amazing vocal range, and beneath her "take-me-as-I-am attitude," lies an alluring vulnerability. KatieBeth is just as willing to love as she is to kick ass. This contrast—this paradox—is who she is. And because of this, she connects with her audience.
"Breaking From The Shadows is an aptly titled first effort for the Milwaukee-based KatieBeth.
The album opens with the bluesy, swirly, hip swinger “I Will Survive” that’s based on a guitar hook very reminiscent of Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats.” The album slides along without much fanfare for a bit, but the highlights are definitely in the middle."
