Kateri is a 22-year-old soul searching for the meaning of life through art. A self- proclaimed nomad, described as "a hippie with a little bit of grunge," Kateri is passionate about seeing the world from all perspectives.
From working as a corporate makeup artist in greater NYC to hostel-hopping around Europe, Kateri channeled her life experiences into an album with no shortage of inspiration. Written over a two-year period of self discovery, she conveys her innermost thoughts and feelings in every strum of the guitar and fingerprint on the piano.
That's what we call intimate!
Actively pursuing her path in music since the age of 14, Kateri recorded a catalogue of works with many multi-platinum producers. Her first demo produced with Heather Holley & Rob Hoffman (Christina Aguilera) caught the attention of her next collaborator. Her first full length project recorded with Rob Fusari (Lady Gaga, Beyoncé) was released under the artist's birth name when she was 17.
After a near death experience and lengthy hospital stay in July 2014, she returned to the studio with Rob Thorne at Angel Thorne Music with new songs ideas and a fresh perspective, Room 448 was created through that beautiful partnership.
