This month my friend Esemae and I released this cover video of "Come as You Are" by Nirvana. Check it out! I think the cinematography looks great. It was filmed by my singer/songwriter friend Gyasi Ross. This month I am working on putting together my own recording setup so I can make more videos for youtube to showcase what I do live. Pretty soon I will have more videos to put on my channel. :-)
The Beat Buddy Guitar Pedal has released the video I made for them on Youtube! Last month they put it up on their facebook page and it got over 1,000 likes. I am working on more pedal demos at the moment so stay tuned for those. 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!
Next week I will be playing as part of a showcase that features female comedians, musicians, dancers and more! Come check out what's happening at the Raven Playhouse in North Hollywood. I'll be playing a few songs. :-) #katieferrara @katieferraramusic @ravenplayhouse #awakemovement @awakemovement #northhollywood #females #music #art #showcase
I just bought my first condenser microphone today! I got a Rode NT-1! So now I have a pre-amp and a vocal mic. Just need to get the new computer and I'll be recording demos in no time! I'm so thankful for all the support I've gotten with my music this year. Busking has really paid off :-) #katieferrara #newmicrophone #nt1 #rode #rodent1 #losangeles #singer #songwriter #recording #condensermic @katieferraramusic #rodemicrophones @rodemic
Last night I went to see Joel Eckels play at Hotel Cafe and I ran into a bunch of songwriter friends! The music was so good that it made our eyes glow like fireflies. :-) #hotelcafe #singers #songwriters #friends #livemusic #losangeles #katieferrara @katieferraramusic @jennialpert @ariherstand @jmacleod84 @sarahhollinsmusic @thehotelcafe @joeleckels

After I finished playing my own set at the center stage at the Melrose Trading Post I went to get lunch in the food court and heard some beautiful reverby music in the grassy area. At first I thought the person singing was an old woman, but then I got closer and realized it was a dude. He's got the most interesting stage presence. He doesn't move his head when he sings. He just stares into the distance like a statue. Does anyone know who this is? I thought he was quite good! #melrosetradingpost #katieferrara @melrosetradingpost #singer #songwriter #silverlakehipsters #hipsterkid #hipstermusic #coolpeople #vintage
I had a great time playing at the Monrovia Street Fair tonight! They show me so much love. I got a cookie from @planetcookiesinc and Kettle Corn! I keep running into people I know! Thanks @sonniethetiger for the picture :-) ・・・ Her singing 😁🙌🙌🙌 #streetfair #katieferrara #monroviafarmersmarket #monrovia #busking #singer
It's Throwback Thursday again! Here's my favorite photo from my London photoshoot in 2011. Special thanks to Britta Von Basedow, Haute Couture designer. This was taken near her studio space. :-) #katieferrara @katieferraramusic #bvb #makespacestudios #london #singer #songwriter #tbt #throwbackthursday #England #Urban
Today was a great day! I filmed a short video for a guitar pick company with my friend Ira, and I bought an audio interface! This is the M-Audio Profire 2626. It's got 8 channels in it and phantom power! Now all I need is my new computer to come in and then I just need a mic and I can start recording my own demos! :-) #gear #profire2626 #recording #audiointerface #doityourself #diymusician #katieferrara @katieferraramusic #maudio @m_audio
Tomorrow I've got a new music video coming out that I did with my friend Sarah of Esemae! Stay tuned. :-) @katieferraramusic and @esemaemusic cover "come as you are" by #nirvana #katieferrara #esemae #livemusic #musicvideo #losangeles #singers
I love busking because sometimes people leave you little treasures! Over the past year I've collected some vintage pennies silver dollars and someone even gave me some Chuck E Cheese tokens from the early 2000's! I've also gotten pesos and foreign money playing on the promenade. :-) #vintage #coins #money #busking #katieferrara @katieferraramusic #silverdollar #1983 #1979 #1953 #pennies #abrahamlincoln #halfdollar
