Biography

Katie has been working with writing & production team, Dirty Princess for the last 2 years, building her album which blends rock/pop with her own acoustic flavour.

After studying performing arts in college and discovering her passion for music, Katie went onto perform in many theatrical productions, where she was able to hone her vocal and performing skills. At the age of eighteen, Katie headlined Redd Angel Allstars release, “If you weren’t there” with South African Pop Idol finalist, Tarryn Lamb which reached the top 30 in South African radio charts. 2007 looks to be a year of great success for Katie as she finishes her album and looks to the future.

In addition to working on her own album, Katie has also performed lead vocals for many Dirty Princess tracks including the “Jason Nevins” project, performing vocals for his productions.

Her album has been described as:

"Mellow, strong and, think K T Tunstall but with an Abba beat, good vocals, all songs on this album are nice. Watch this one rocket" Magic, Amie Street.com

Lyrics

Getting over you

Written By: Katie Salt / Dirty Princess Productions

I’m glad you called so I can hide,
Hide behind my telephone.
I don’t want to let you know that I’m
Afraid and I’m alone.

You talk about
How she’d been treating you real good,
And god knows I’d take it back and treat you
Better if I could.

But it’s too late now
I know that I’ve been replaced now.
It seems such a waste now,
But I know I’m to blame.

Oh baby since you moved on,
I’ve realised that I’m not strong.
Since you found somebody to lean on,
My nights are all the same,
I sit counting the days.
What went wrong?
I thought you’d never love another now you’re gone.
You think that I’ve recovered? My heart’s torn.
And I just can’t stand the pain,
Cos I’m not getting over you.

I had the choice, and I chose
To let you go, to set you free.
I couldn’t give you what you needed when
You only needed me.
Bad advice I know, to give myself
But I’m pro at losing out.
Should have know that I would find
What loneliness is all about.

But it’s too late now,
I’ve gotta leave it to fate now.
Oh I can only wait now,
It’s never gonna be the same.

Oh baby since you moved on,
I’ve realised that I’m not strong.
Since you found somebody to lean on,
My nights are all the same,
I sit counting the days.
What went wrong?
I thought you’d never love another now you’re gone.
You think that I’ve recovered? My heart’s torn.
And I just can’t stand the pain,
Cos I’m not getting over you.

I never had the time to be the lover that you wanted me to be,
So I guess its better that you’ve got that time with someone else.
And oh I wish things were different but I guess I’ve been conditioned
To always walk away.
But I still miss you….Oh I still miss you…..

Oh baby since you moved on,
I’ve realised that I’m not strong.
Since you found somebody to lean on,
My nights are all the same,
I sit counting the days.
What went wrong?
I thought you’d never love another now you’re gone.
You think that I’ve recovered? My heart’s torn.
And it just can’t stand the pain,
Cos I’m not getting over you.

If you weren't there

Written By: Katie Salt / Dirty Princess Productions

I can’t remember much of who I used to be,
There’s been so many changes, that I’m hardly me.
Gone is what I was, and
Underneath what’s left is what you see.

My light grew faint as darkness kept on closing in,
I wore the guilt for all the places I had been.
But you freed my heart,
And now I’m really part of life again.

If you weren’t there I know that I would
Fall and I would stumble.
If you didn’t care, there could never ever
Be a meaning to it all.
And if you weren’t there I know that every day I’d
Fold and crumble.
Oh if you weren’t there for me to call.

I feel like I’m a child just born into this world.
I’ve got those butterflies like I’m a little girl.
Everything’s brand new,
Yes everything’s brand new in this world.

If you weren’t there I know that I would
Fall and I would stumble.
If you didn’t care, there could never ever
Be a meaning to it all.
And if you weren’t there I know that every day I’d
Fold and crumble.
Oh if you weren’t there for me to call.

I, should have never missed the chance,
The chance to tell you how I really feel.
I could die, with just another stolen glance,
I just need to see you,
Oh god I need to see you once again.

If you weren’t there I know that I would
Fall and I would stumble.
If you didn’t care, there could never ever
Be a meaning to it all.
And if you weren’t there I know that every day I’d
Fold and crumble.
Oh if you weren’t there for me to call.

Lift me up

Written By: Katie Salt / Dirty Princess Productions

Monday morning feels the same as Tuesday, Wednesday, everyday.
The coffee tastes like yesterdays, my diary says nothing.
Got to take the small town out of this girl.
No more, dreams, and memories it time for me to meet the world.

Just lift me up till I can't see anything but heaven.
I've been feeling kinda down,
But I know with you around that I could feel free.
Just leave it all behind.
This world of grey’s left me colour-blind,
I need to feel and I know I could only feel good with you.

One by one my friend's have left for interesting places,
Funny how I thought you'd be the one to stay behind.
There have been some other guys but I can't recall their faces.
And when I think of romance it's your face that fills my mind.
I've gotta make a move before it gets too late,
Baby will you make the move with me,
Now that's the choice you have to make.

Just lift me up till I can't see anything but heaven.
I've been feeling kinda down,
But I know with you around that I could feel free.
Just leave it all behind.
This world of grey’s left me colour-blind,
I need to feel and I know I could only feel good with you.

Forgotten memories of you, they call for resurrection
Forgotten moments that we shared they need to live again
Forgotten face I know is gone when I look at my reflection
Forgotten me, I have to live again.

Just lift me up till I can't see anything but heaven.
I've been feeling kinda down,
But I know with you around that I could feel free.
Just leave it all behind.
This world of grey’s left me colour-blind,
I need to feel and I know I could only feel good with you.
