Katie Richards is an Australian born musician who has just arrived in Auckland to share her talents with New Zealand.
She has been a full time muso for over 10 years with experience performing on stage from the tender age of 10.
Katie has successfully toured around Australia twice, visiting such places as Uluru (aka Ayres Rock), The Great Ocean Road, major cities and many rural towns across her home country.
Her original album "Fancy That", was recorded in 2010 in The Blue Mountains near Sydney and has a collection of Pop, Folk, Country songs with a raunchy rock flavour. Now planning to form a band, record her second album and perform her songs at music Festivals around 'the land of the long white cloud'.
Katie has a strong fan base in Australia and a growing love from the locals here "across the ditch''. Naturally comfortable performing boutique personal gigs through to large scale events and festivals.
Along with providing support gigs for some big names in the music world like Kate Miller Heidke, Toni Childs and Dragon, Katie's original music has rocked the stage as the main act on occasions too numerous to count.
