Welcome to my Website!

At the top of this page is a menu with my bio, music, videos and contact information. Please feel free to explore and learn more about my music! 

What's new with me? This month has been a roller coaster ride!   A couple of weeks ago I found out about a busking contest called "Feeling the Street", which is sponsored by Toyota.  Winners of the contest will be flown on an all expenses paid for trip to New Zealand where they will play in a "Global Street Band" made up of street musicians from all over the world which are  hand picked by audience members who voted in the contest.

This contest is very important to me because I consider street performing one of my passions as an artist. I decided to enter and submitted a live video of myself busking in downtown Burbank  singing my song "Leaves". The video has received over 9,000 views on facebook in the past week and I ended up getting the most number of votes for vocalist in the first round of the contest. 

Right now, I'm preparing for round 2 of voting which lasts until June 3rd. After that, contest winners will be announced. Stay tuned for my encore video! :-) In the meantime, I've posted my submission video here for you to watch and you can find out more about the contest at www.feelingthestreet.com 
 




The Beat Buddy Guitar Pedal has released the video I made for them on Youtube! The Beat Buddy is a Drum Machine Pedal I use for songwriting, and practicing guitar. I basically can control the drum beat as I play a song. Check out the video for more info. This video is also featured on the Beat Buddy Website at http://mybeatbuddy.com/



 
This year I have also been playing at a lot of flea markets and farmer's markets in LA including the Melrose Trading Post, Altadena Farmer's Market, and So Cal Etsy Guild and I have caught the attention of an online magazine called Roots Revival Co! The magazine features small businesses, artists, musicians, and handmade crafts! With that said, I have an idea to start a blog on my website about my experience street performing. It will include info about where to busk, how to set up, what to bring, what songs to play, and what gear to buy!

  • Here's a picture my friend Sophie took of me while we stayed with our songwriter friends in Palm Springs! We went to a venue called Pappy and Harriet's and saw a band. We also played each other songs at a house in the middle of the desert! I can't believe the weekend is over :-0 #katieferrara @katieferraramusic #palmsprings #pappyandharriets #desert #songwriter #fashion #sanbernadino #oasis #palmtrees #boots
