Demo EP- Karlie McKinnon/ Cafe Shop



I can't remember i time where i wasn't singing- it has been my passion and my love ever since i was a little girl. When i was little i would often go into my room, shut the door sit down my desk with a paper and pencil in hand then just start singing and drawing ( i couldn't write very well at that time...) I remember one particular instance where I sang a song and it stuck in my head so i kept on singing it and singing it. I was really excited about it so i ran to my mother who was doing house work pulled on her skirt then sang it to her. She stopped what she was doing and wrote it down, i then sang it for my baptism into my church a few weeks later. I was 7 when i 'made up' that song. Songwriting has been in my life ever since then and has developed into what it is now. This past year i have been performing at a lot of different parties and festivals which has been a lot of fun. At these performances, however, people would go up to the people in charge asking to buy my CD, get my information to my website, etc. So with that encouragement in hand i started to find my way through the musical world, have made a demo EP, and have started to find band members (still in the process of that...). Music is meant to be shared. It give me joy to do it, and it gives others joy to have me do it. I don't think that there's a greater thing than that.

When i perform on stage i like to engage the crowed. Talk to them a bit, make it kind of have a 'homey' feel. I like to feel like they're my friends, not only does this help take down my 'nerves' level, but i think this also helps the crowd to have a better time.
