It’s the unpredictable experience of living that births the lyrics and melodies in the music of Katelyn Read; the emotions felt, the moments remembered, the struggles endured.

 

Katelyn embraces lyrics that stir up hope, attempt to define love, and speak of the joy of living. Influenced by The Civil Wars, Amos Lee, Gungor, and Billie Holiday, her sound blends folk melodies with a hint of blues and soul. “I want to write music others can connect with, and speak for them when life brings moments that words fail to describe.” Katelyn’s deep love of lyrical poetry intertwine with the ebb and flow of her haunting melodies and folk-inspired instrumentation. At the root of her music is her own story of heartbreak and the hope that rose from challenging moments of her life.

 

“Who am I?…I’m a mom and a wife doing everyday things, all while chasing my dreams. I never feel as alive as I do when I am singing.” A truth that makes her and her music relatable in a day where so much of the music industry has lost sight of the hope, joy, and life that words can bring.

Katelyn Read is a WV native, now living in Raleigh, NC, with her husband and daughter.
