In this episode of LIVE: Front & Center, the Women’s International Music Network (WiMN) welcomes Award-winning Blues musician, singer, music instructor, and mother of two – Katie Knipp.
WiMN Member Myki Angeline talks with artist and good friend, Katie Knipp about her newest album The Well, a five song EP which debuted at #4 on the Blues Billboard Chart in March. In regards to awards, Katie has received the Billboard World Song Contest honorable mention for “Eyes Like Birds” and “Brother”, Roots Music Report Top Contemporary Blues Albums spun for 2018 and 2019 for her single, “Take it With You” worldwide radio spins, 2019/2020 SAMMIE Award Winner for Best Blues Artist, 2020 Female Artist of the Year Honoree by the Country Folk Americana Blues Music Realm, and 2021 Roots Music Report Top Contemporary Albums spun for The Well.
“Her voice is delightful, and perfectly suited to the blues. Her songwriting chops are some of the finest currently on display anywhere and the chemistry she has with her band members is to die for. They may call it the blues, but there’s nothing depressing about the quality of sound and music that Knipp exudes. We wouldn’t be surprised to see this one up for GRAMMY consideration.” -Robert Leggett, LA Music Critic
Katie also shares with the WiMN her journey of recording and releasing The Well during the pandemic, while caring for her two sons (ages 4 and 7), and teaching music/voice lessons.
