I'm a country girl from the Ohio/West Virginia line who moved to LA to find the perfect "sound" and I'm doing just that. I'm a blend of country, rock, and pop with a mainstream twist....but I've got a unique air of a small town girl in a big city that I can't wait to share with the world.

Biography

She’s the small town girl with a big voice: Meet Katie Ohh, whose powerhouse vocals, musical authenticity and spotlight-ready charisma signal the arrival of an ascending and essential new artist. On her self-titled EP, she introduces a captivating sound that is part country, part rock and all Katie Ohh.

From Powhatan Point, Ohio, situated between Captina Creek and the Ohio River, Katie Ohh (short for “Orlofske”) has made the giant career leap to Los Angeles. Now in her early twenties, she established herself back home with performances in clubs, concerts (including the famous “Jamboree in the Hills” festival) and with successive appearances on the legendary Wheeling Jamboree broadcast on WWVA - the second longest running radio show in the history of American radio.

Obviously, a move to Nashville – where she had visited many times – would have been the more obvious career choice. But when Katie journeyed to California she met musical friends, played great gigs and made the fateful decision to live in in L.A.

For her debut EP, she and producer Dan Weidlein crafted a distinctive framework to surround her evocative voice and sterling songs, including an epic string section worthy of a symphony orchestra. But while these sounds are dramatic, they never overshadow the artistry of Katie Ohh; the sincerity of her melodies and the revelations within her narratives. She says that the truth is in the telling. “When I sing, the best way to tell the story is to think about the words. The listener can tell when you mean it or you don’t.”

Discreetly tattooed on the inside of Katie’s arm is the Latin phrase “Alis volat propriis” which translates as “she flies with her own wings.” It is a fitting declaration of the determination that transported her from a tiny town in Ohio to the entertainment crossroads of the world.

“It makes me crazy not to be doing something,” she concludes “I’m not the type of person to sit back and wait for things to come to me. I want audiences to understand that I’m a country girl, but I have eclectic musical elements within my sound. And I want everyone to know that good things are coming in the very near future.”
