Katie Ferrara Is Making Change With Her Music!
Hi Katie! It is great to chat with you today!
You recently released your song "On Her Path"! Can you tell our readers a bit about the project and the inspiration for it?
I co-wrote "On Her Path" with my friend Bob Brisco. He introduced me to an organization called water.org., which helps bring clean water and sanitation to communities all over the world. I was very much inspired by some of the photos on their website as well as some of the stories the founders Gary White and Alix Lebec had shared with me about the women who risk their lives to bring clean water home to their families. Many women in South America, Africa and India have to walk up to 10 miles a day carrying heavy cans of water on their backs. I wanted to write a song to raise awareness of the global water crisis and also show how brave many of these women are for risking their lives to fulfill a basic need. Everyone deserves access to clean water especially during the COVID-19 crisis.
Who are some of your biggest music influences?
I am very much inspired by the Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Kacey Musgraves, and Ed Sheeran.
How would you describe your sound to a new fan?
My sound is timeless, classic, upbeat, poppy, folky, and something many generations would love including your mom and dad.
Are there any surreal moments that have happened in your career thus far?
Winning a music contest in 2019 and also in 2018, filming a music video in Switzerland while taking a Gondola to the top of a mountain.
What is your favorite part of being an artist?
My favorite part about being an artist is that I can make a difference in people's lives through songwriting and get to know people from all over the world.
