Katie Burns is a singer songwriter from Omaha, Nebraska. Known for her simple, poetic songwriting, finger style guitar and her angelic vocals.
Katie grew up listening to her parent’s Simon and Garfunkel and Peter Paul and Mary records. She remembers being struck by a vocal when she heard Sinead O’Connor’s first hit song. Katie started to pay more attention to vocalists as a teen and was strongly influenced by 10,000 Maniacs, The Sundays, Cranberries and Omaha’s indie scene. At the age of 16 she began to play at local venues in Omaha and in Kansas City.
After attending college on a writing scholarship, Katie spent time teaching inner city high school kids in Chicago and now has three young children of her own that she home schools. She says she believes in the here and now. She tries to live her life and let the songs follow.
In 2013 she released her debut album, You’ll Find Your Way. The album was recorded in Katie’s hometown, Omaha, Nebraska at ARC Studio’s and was produced by Ben Brodin. This intimate album has themes of friendship, parenthood, and daily life. It holds quiet acoustic songs that are accented by beautiful piano and cello parts.
In 2014 she released her second album, Throw the Flowers Down, also recorded at ARC Studios and produced by Ben Brodin. This album explores similar themes. It begins with a song about family ties and ends with burying those ties.
Katie currently lives in Mineral Point, Wisconsin with her husband who is an artisanal cheese maker and her three children.
Her brilliant new album was released on the 12th of December.
