Bio

I am Kathryn Campbell. Known to most as Katie, I am an LA native, who started my career in my parents' kitchen at three years old. Although I grew up here, I am a new songwriter and actress in the LA world. I've spent the past few years developing and honing my skills and am now ready to "put myself out there" as an independent artist.

My goal as an artist is to demonstrate raw and honest human experience in my work by embracing and expressing truthfully in every moment. My songwriting is influenced harmonically by jazz, form & melody by pop/rock, and feel & style by Sarah Vaughn's sense of swing, Joni Mitchell's storytelling, and the overall essence of The Beatles. I'm very excited for what the future holds!!

Background: I took dance classes in all styles for many years, and have played piano most of my life. I attended Hamilton H.S. Academy of Music where I majored in "Musical Theater" and fell in love with vocal jazz. I left sunny CA and completed my Bachelor of Music in "Jazz Studes" at Western Michigan University. While at WMU, I performed throughout Eastern and Western Europe and South Africa with the award-winning ensembles, "GOLD COMPANY," the "GOLD COMPANY SEXTET," and the "WMU CHORALE."

I have also performed in various jazz venues from New York to Los Angeles including Alice Tully Hall at LINCOLN CENTER, BIRDLAND, and THE JAZZ BAKERY. I've performed with BOBBY MCFERRIN, JANIS SIEGEL of the "Manhattan Transfer," and DARMON MEADER of the "New York Voices." In 2004, I earned the "Best Collegiate Jazz Vocalist" award from DOWNBEAT Magazine. After college, I moved to New York City to be the stand-by for both female roles in the A Cappella ensemble TOXIC AUDIO in their off-Broadway show "LOUDMOUTH." I continued working with TOXIC AUDIO in Mexico and the Caribbean. Since returning to Los Angeles, I've performed as the lead vocalist in the MATT ROBERTS GROUP (www.mattrobertsgroup.com & www.myspace.com/mattrobertsgroup) and also with the NEW WEST GUITAR QUARTET (www.newwestguitar.com & www.myspace.com/newwestguitar). Other work includes various independent studio singing sessions, recording with the NEW WEST GUITAR QUARTET, and singing on the upcoming BOBBY MCFERRIN Choral Album (not yet released). My most recent success was a performing at The GRAMMY Foundation's "Starry Night" event, a tribute to the legendary SIR GEORGE MARTIN.

I presently work at MUSICIANS INSTITUTE teaching Music Theory, Ear Training, Voice Lessons, Keyboard, Sight-Reading and "Art of Preparation," a class I created to help students prepare for performance.

Thank you for reading and I look forward to meeting you!
