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 Read, a 25 year old WV native, is a folk-blues singer songwriter now living in Raleigh, NC. She embraces lyrics that stir up hope, attempt to define love, and speak of the joy of living. Influenced by The Civil Wars, Amos Lee, and Ray Lamontagne, her sound blends folk melodies with a hint of blues and soul. She recently appeared on NBC’s popular reality TV singing competition The Voice, where she successfully auditioned and joined Christina Aguilera’s team. Now continuing to pursue her music career, Katelyn writes and performs her own music with her band. “I want to write music others can connect with, and speak for them when life brings moments that words fail to describe.” At the root of Katelyn’s music you will find the ebb and flow of haunting melodies intertwined with her deep love of lyrical poetry.
“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.
