Katie Quick is a truly unique artist with something more to offer the world than just her music. As a critically acclaimed singer/songwriter, Katie independently released three self-produced, full-length albums to rave reviews. She earned nominations for Album of the Year and Song of the Year in both the Independent Music Awards and the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, respectively. She most recently appeared on ABC’s Katie Couric Show with Clive Davis, followed by her debut on Broadway in Rock of Ages. Katie has also shared the stage with such musical legends as Peter Frampton, performing unabashedly as a standout solo artist in front of thousands. By way of international touring, Katie has built an incredible network of fans across the globe. Her music has been played on radio stations in the US, England, Sweden, Australia, and Africa, and she has performed live on many more networks including ABC, NBC, CMT, and GAC just to name a few. She has won countless other contests and awards including the CMT/Country Strong Competition, US99.5 Chicago Country Talent Contest, Colgate Country Showdown, and The Next GAC Star. Katie has also had numerous write-ups including the cover story of the Chicago Sun-Times, Nashville’s Music Row Magazine, as well as receiving glowing 5-Star Reviews for both Be the Change and Valley Between Love in the UK’s Maverick Magazine. Booking agents across the country have seen Katie Quick fans young and old pack in venues to sold-out capacity, and even drink the bars out of beer as they did at a Nashville show last January. Whether she is performing as a solo-acoustic act charming audiences with her award-winning songs and charismatic personality, or rocking out with a high-energy band of originals or covers, Katie Quick and her music will captivate you.
But perhaps the most fascinating aspect of Katie’s career is her willingness to give back. As a former Chicago Public School teacher, Katie turned her passion for children into something that can truly change the world, The Fingertips Program. This groundbreaking school assembly that combines live music with motivational speaking, has been hailed as “the best school assembly in years” by various principals across the country. Katie says that Fingertips is her “life purpose” and “reason for being,” and since it’s inception in 2010, she has been able to inspire nearly half a million students around the country. To further her vision, Katie became a professional Life Coach in 2014, training with The Coaches Training Institute, one of the top coaching schools in the world. She continues to connect with students of all socioeconomic backgrounds, through her music and journey, about making their dreams a reality. Fingertips is currently in the process of becoming a Non-Profit organization so that Katie will be able to reach even more students in the coming year.
