Originally from a very small town, Denmark in WA, singer, songwriter, guitarist and bass player, Katie J White has taken her music as far as London and she has played literally hundreds of venues across Australia from Broome WA to the Sunshine Coast QLD. Her career began at age 14 when she supported The Waifs in front of thousands of people.
Katie J White took out the 2016 West Australian Music Industry (WAMI) Song Of The Year Award for the Blues and Roots category with her song ‘River’. ‘Warrior’, another track of her EP, was also nominated that year, following a double nomination in 2015 with her song ‘Gypsy’. This makes three out of five tracks on her third EP WAMI nominated.
In January 2017 her 4th album, ‘Red Cloud’ was released, featuring Katie’s ability to tell deep stories, through song, and also the range of musical styles she had mastered at the age of 23, from stripped back folk songs recorded with nothing but her and her guitar, to heavy and moving rock ballads driven by Katie’s bass playing style.
Now at age 25, Katie is currently completing a national tour which includes 60 gigs in 6 months across Australia. Katie has played at all the main folk festivals in WA, including full house performances at Western Australia’s renowned Fairbridge, Nukara, Nannup, and Perth International Arts Festivals.
