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! 

I'm proud to present this new busking video for my new single called "When Stars Collide" featuring Jesse Cross on Electric Guitar and directed by Cody Ebbeler. 

You can also download the fully produced single on bandcamp at https://katieferraramusic.bandcamp.com/track/when-stars-collide 

 


In June this year, I won the Toyota Sponsored "Feeling the Street" busking contest thanks to your vote! :-)  I toured New Zealand in a Global Street Band made of 5 other musicians from Belgium, Poland, Spain, Colombia, and America. The trip was 8 days long beginning in Auckland and ending with our performance at the Queenstown Winter Festival in the south island.  The weather was very cold and it was strange to see snow in June!

Each day, the band jammed together in various locations across the country. In addition to playing in Queenstown, we played at a studio in Auckland, at vineyard on Weiheke Island, and at a Maori Village and went on various outdoor adventures in a helicopter and jet boat. I even convinced myself to go bungee jumping! The trip was documented the whole way and you can watch what we did each day on YouTube or by visiting feelingthestreet.com

Again I really can't thank you all enough for your help with this contest. It's my dream to travel the world doing music and YOU made it possible. So thank you! And thanks Toyota and Feeling the Street! 

 



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!

  • Through teaching others, we can learn more about ourselves. The more you know about yourself, the more you can relate to others and collaborate. I say if you are stuck with songwriting, teach someone else something you know-whether it be a song you like or a cool lick on the guitar, or a new instrument! By showing someone else your process, you are opening yourself up to an infinite amount of possibilities :-) Photo Cred: Jessica Boranian #katieferrara #songwriter #singer #music #musician #Sandiego #creativity #retreat #song #freedom #inspiration #hippies

  • I found a new market to busk at today! I'm at Highland Park Farmer's Market set up next to a pay phone. I haven't seen one of these in a long time! I got an orange and some tips. If my cell phone ever dies again while I'm busking, I know I can call collect! :-) #katieferrara #highlandpark #farmersmarket #oranges #payphone #collectcalls #busker #busking #streetperformer #singing #tuesday #quarters

  • I've got some great news everyone! I've been featured in AirTurn Go's Newsletter this month after connecting at NAMM! Musicians, you need to check this company out. They make PORTABLE mic stands that fold down to 18 inches. I think they are amazing. I've been using mine for the last 4 months for busking and I am very satisfied at how lightweight and durable this thing is. I even use it for micing instruments in the studio such as drums or guitar. It's got so many applications. Check them out and say you referred me :-) #katieferrara #airturngo #portable #micstand #busker #streetperformer #gear

  • Today was probably one of the best busking sessions I've ever done! I decided to set up outside the Anaheim Convention Center at NAMM. As I was playing, I met John, the designer of the Mackie Freeplay amp that I've been using for my gigs. I also ran into the makers of the AirTurn Go portable mic stand that I use. I received many gear gifts from different vendors as well as a bountiful case of tips! I'm so happy! You can watch some of my session on periscope :-) #katieferrara #busker #mackiefreeplay #airturngo #micstand #NAMM #streetperformer #anaheim #music #singer #songwriter #original #harmonica #tambourine #batterypower #tehnology #gear #girl #guitar
