"Katie Marie is a consummate professional. Working with her is always a joy as she is supremely prepared and approaches everything with a fresh and positive attitude. She is crazy talented with a quick smile and a winning personality. It is a privilege to play music with her!" - Shelley King
My main instruments are bass, drums / percussion and acoustic guitar. I also sing.
Over the past 25 years, I've been fortunate enough to work with some incredibly talented bands and artists and have toured extensively across the USA, UK and Europe.
I am proudly endorsed by Schlagwerk Percussion, Takamine and L R Baggs. I road tested and reviewed the CT4-DX for Takamine and the VR3 Audio/Video mixer for Roland. I demo-ed projects for many years at the Frankfurt Musikmesse and the London Acoustic Guitar Show for Schlagwerk and L R Baggs.

This is a fun jam I recorded randomly after a session at Blue Rock, love me some Wurlitzer :)
During lockdown I made videos every week and set myself the challenge of recording a jam that I had made-up randomly....but I had to get it written, recorded and finished in 2 hours. It was a lot of fun because I never had any idea what was going to happen, and it was a great exercise in not getting caught up in trying to be perfect (guilty as charged). I ended up posting 14 different videos, here's one of my favs:
