Today we’d like to introduce you to Katherine Evans.
Katherine, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
Music was everywhere when I was growing up. My parents were both musicians. When I was 3 years old, my mom asked me what instrument I wanted to learn. I chose the violin because it was delicate and pretty and I was a very girly girl at the time. My brother chose cello, and the three of us (my mom, brother, and me) started a little trio. It was very cute!
Even though I was a very shy kid, I loved to perform. I dressed up as Dorothy and sang ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ to anyone who would listen. I blasted Avril Lavigne’s ‘Let Go’ album and felt my teen angst come alive.
Eventually, I started writing my own angsty songs. I went to the University of Miami and minored in the contemporary program, where I was inspired by everyone all the time. I became obsessed with songwriting. Once I knew that was what I wanted to do, there was no stopping me.
Now, I’m getting ready to release a lot of new music, and I’m so excited! I’ve been working with Carter Soso, an amazing producer and great friend of mine who is also a University of Miami alumni. I’ve really enjoyed collaborating with other creatives in LA. I have so many projects in the works that I’m dying to share with the world. The west coast has been good to me!
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I make songs for every mood under the sun. Sometimes a song can articulate a feeling better than words can. Writing has been an emotional outlet for me. I’m an over-thinker. I worry about saying too much or not saying enough. When I’m writing, I bring the most vulnerable parts of me to the surface and kind of just let go of everything else.
You know when you relate to a song so much that you feel like it was written just for you? I love that feeling. I want to re-create that a million times for a million different people.
Do current events, local or global, affect your work and what you are focused on?
Absolutely. I think art is more important than ever right now. We all need healing, we all need love and to feel heard, and music is such a powerful, connecting force. It’s a way to create meaning throughout the chaos and uncertainty in life. It’s a way to empathize with each other and to love more deeply. It’s the best medicine, and I’m really grateful for it.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
