In a business where there is no road map to success, 21-year-old Katie Trotta has been setting her own course making a name for herself - one show at a time. She wins over audience after audience with her soulful piano/vocals and genuine performances. Katie has been said to have little pieces of Fiona Apple, Rachael Yamagata, Sarah McLachlan and Ani DiFranco but what it all comes down to is a fresh, honest voice of her own. The past few years are described well by Brian Baker in a review for City Beat of Cincinnati, Ohio. "Whoever said that youth is wasted on the young doesn't know Katie Trotta. Not yet old enough to drink legally in the places she plays, she recently graduated from high school, put in a semester at Butler University, recorded her gorgeous and intensely personal piano/vocal debut, release, and put together a band for a fuller presentation. What were you doing at 20? That's what I thought."
