It is a great rush to be a part of a team that helps enhance the talent of another artist. Katie has been adding live BGV to Lois Mahalia’s music for over a year and can usually be found with Lois at the Four Seasons Resort in Santa Barbara or the occasional wedding or private event. She has also added BGV to other artists in the area including Kenny Loggins and Tina Schlieske in the performance of Seraphonium, a musical masterpiece by Monte Schultz.
Seeing as it is one of Katie’s dreams to be a vocal animation artist, it has been a dream come true to record with Don MacMannis, a local Ph.D., who is the creator of Happy Kids Songs. Katie also is contracted with Santa Barbara Face Painting, a party business in town, to perform as a popular princess at parties.
