New single ‘Catch Me’ from vocalist Katie Veltri serves as perfect introduction to forthcoming EP
UNITED STATES – Though Katie Veltri is an artist whose voice has been heard in a variety of places, there’s perhaps no better showcase for her unique talent than that of her most recent single “Catch Me.” The bouncy island vibe fused with blues guitar and Katie’s ethereal vocals is the perfect song to invite listeners into a chill, laid-back space. It’s a song that has a sway and groove that make you want to move from side-to-side as you close your eyes and dream with Katie as she sings. It’s low key and down-to-earth – something that perfectly describes this budding young artist who has recorded on both the East and West Coasts.
Katie sees herself as an R&B singer who implements different styles and thinks outside the box. She’s been integrating different genres into her music from day one. She was recently spotlighted on a radio critic’s choice playlist for two of her recent singles, and she’s worked with producers on both coasts. “Catch Me” is the debut single from her new EP of the same name which features four songs that further explore her jazzy and sultry vocals.
“I draw influences from artists ranging from Whitney Houston to Annie Clark to Pink Floyd, and I’ve traveled across the country working with many different producers,” Katie said. “I like to implement stylistic approaches to my style, and I think my experiences help set me apart from anyone else out there today. My experimental style is what distinguishes me. I’m implementing jazz vocal styles and blending the old with the new.”
Katie first got into music through writing. She’s been a writer for magazines, blogs and poetry outlets among other things, and has been an artist across multiple mediums for many years. In college, she dove head first into songwriting and hasn’t looked back since. With the new EP, Katie said she hopes to show the world an intelligent young woman who has natural gifts as a singer and songwriter, but who also has some important things to say about the world and culture and relationships.
“I have a unique perspective to offer and I hope that’s what my music becomes known for,” she said. “I want to create music that helps people become more aware of what’s going on around us. I’m a serious artist with something to say, and I believe that resonates with people at large, not just one demographic. With everything that’s going on these days, people want something real and not formulaic, and I really believe that’s what I’m doing with my music.”
