Katie Pruitt is a young, talented, and fiercely passionate songwriter within
Nashville’s music community. Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, Katie wholeheartedly embraced her new city and for the past three years has swiftly built a reputation around her dynamic vocals and soulful, bluesy sound. After attempting to start the rock band she’s always dreamed of, Katie soon realized her songs were her stories to tell, no one else’s. Since then Katie has found musicians that are solely there to support her sound and message, which come through loud and clear during her intimate shows.
Katie has been working long and hard towards her goal of releasing music to the world, and plans to debut a number of live takes of her original songs in 2018. Alongside the recording process, Katie graces the numerous stages around Nashville on a regular basis.
Splitting her time between writing songs and waiting tables, Katie wasted no time getting her foot in the door of Nashville’s music scene. Katie’s first big break wasn’t until she landed a Tuesday night residency at The Basement where she truly started to see her fan base explode. Not long after that, she charmed her way on to the Music City Roots stage in Franklin, Tennessee and fostered a relationship that secured her a spot on Nashville’s Americana Festival lineup.
Katie’s talent and progress did not go unnoticed by the entertainment industry and in 2016 she was awarded the first annual BMI Songwriting Scholarship for her original song "Ordinary". In 2017 she was the honored recipient of the Buddy Holly Prize, previously won by the likes of Emily King and Ben Howard, through the Songwriter Hall of Fame. Recently, Katie signed to Round Hill Music Publishing and played Pilgrimage Festival alongside headliners Justin Timberlake and Eddie Vedder.
Keep an eye out for her debut album coming in 2018 and stay up to date on where she’ll be playing live next.
