Katie Cole “Lost Inside A Moment”

Meet Katie Cole originally from Melbourne, Australia, now based in Los Angeles, USA. Not your every day female singer songwriter. Does she dominate with ballads? No. Does she compose songs on the piano? Rarely. What she does do then? She rocks and enjoys a loud guitar, a strong melodic hook and an up tempo pop song. Growing up on a strict diet of rock music from her Mom, she was fed Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin in one ear and Maria Callas from her Vocally classically trained, Father. After a quick detour in music to Smashing Pumpkins, Aretha Franklin and Eurythmics, Katie describes her own style of music as having flavors of Sheryl Crow, KT Tunstall and Carolina Liar.

After writing songs for established artists like Gloria Gaynor (USA), 2 Fabiola (Belgium) and Ultrasun (UK), Katie spent a good handful of years touring in Australia where she released an EP locally. It wasn’t long before she started to set her sights on the world. What soon followed was a Autobiography on her website listing her favorite producers and songwriters to work with and a surprising, but much wanted) return email to Katie Cole. Acclaimed Record Producer Howard Willing (Smashing Pumpkins, Counting Crows, Liz Phair, Sheryl Crow, Ok Go) found her music on the web and reached out to Katie to discuss working together. Plane ticket booked, hire car and hotel paid for and Katie jumped a few planes back and forth before deciding she needed to be based in LA to springboard her career. With 2 suitcases, a computer and her guitar Katie up and re-located to Cali for good.

Since then, she has won awards for song-writing including MusicOz in Australia and now is a recipient of an “ASCAP Plus” award 2010 and “MOVADO FUTURE LEGEND 2010” trophy. Movado ran a full page story in the New York Times and are featuring Katie Cole’s song “GRAVITY” in their BOLD watch campaign airing Dec 2010 on all major Tv networks including NBC, ABC, CBS, Bravo, Comedy Central and again in spring 2011. Aside from playing in Nashville and New York, Katie performs in Los Angeles regularly at Hotel cafe, The Mint, Room 5 and Viper room and has shared the stage with names like Glen Campbell, Jackson Browne and Anna Nalick. BBC Radio 2 (UK) and Smooth Radio (UK) are now looking at playing Katie’s music starting April 2011.

Her debut EP “LOST INSIDE A MOMENT” is currently out through iTunes.
