Hi :) Thanks for stopping by.....
My name's Katie Marie. I'm a multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter originally from the UK but I now live in Austin, TX.
I've been touring, writing and recording music for the past 20 years. In that time I've been lucky enough to work with many talented bands and artists as well as performing my own music. I have released 4 albums, all of which were recorded in my own studio. For each of these I wrote all the music and played all the instruments / vocal parts myself.
I'm proud to be endorsed by Takamine guitars, Schlagwerk Percussion, L R Baggs and Logarhythm. I road tested the CT4-DX pre-amp for Takamine and Roland asked me to review their VR3 audio/video mixer.
Previous artists and acts I have performed / toured with include: Disappear Fear (26 State USA tour), Martin Barre (Jethro Tull), Blue House, Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul and Mary) and many more.
I'm lucky enough to have co-written material with these incredible folks: Phil Gould (Level42 drummer/songwriter), Dan Cassidy (Eva Cassidy's brother) and Henry Priestman (The Christians). Phil in particular has been a great mentor to me and I'm proud to say that I played bass, cajon and provided backing vocals for some of his new material.
I have been teaching for the past 10 years and truly love sharing my knowledge and love for music with others.
I think that's it....although I know as soon as I hit the 'Submit' button I'll think of something else! If you'd like to hear some audio clips feel free to check out my website: www.femalesessionmusician.com
...and if you have any questions please feel free to get in touch!
Katie Marie is a very talented multi-instrumentalist who also happens to be a great singer-songwriter. Katie has played on some of my work and, apart from being one of the most talented, is also one of the nicest people I’ve had the pleasure to work with” – Phil Gould, Level42 (drummer, songwriter, producer)
“”Interdisciplinarity” means in science, the use of approaches, ways of thinking or methods from various disciplines. A perfect example of this being transferred to the music world would be British musician Katie Marie: she sings, plays guitar, piano, bass and drums. A perfect one-woman band” – Akustik Gitarre Magazine (www.akustik-gitarre.com)

I'm a patient and friendly teacher with 10 years teaching experience and 20 years of touring / studio work.
I believe lessons should be informative but most of all - FUN! I totally adore music, it's been my everything for more than half my lifetime and I equally enjoy sharing my knowledge with others who will hopefully become inspired to make their own musical journeys.
