Thousands of fans and three releases into her career, Katie Todd continues to shine. Having shared the stage with such music scene luminaries as Juliana Hatfield, Patti Labelle, 10,000 Maniacs, Steve Winwood, Margot & The Nuclear So & So’s, Kenny Loggins and The Wallflowers, the Chicago Arts and Entertainment Magazine has recognized Katie as “a breath of fresh air that the Chicago music scene has been waiting for.”
Lauded by iTunes.com as having one of the “top buzz bands in the country”, Katie recently claimed a spot as the website’s “Artist of the Week”, earning over 200,000 downloads of their latest single “Face Down”. On her fourth and most recent release, Make Some Time For Wasting, Katie’s captivating voice and signature percussive keys-playing are showcased most boldly on her haunting single, “Leave," which tells a tale of woe that has radio and TV programmers hailing it as “one of the most perfect pop songs to come along in quite a while.”
Recognizing the momentum of Katie’s success, Musicbox Online has aptly dubbed her talent as “smart, compelling…and ready for fame.” her debut release, Changing Faces, was named “best independent release of the year 2000” by WXRT Chicago. Katie was a finalist in Milwaukee’s 2002 Big Break Competition, in Ireland’s 2003 Reach Contest, 2006’s International Songwriting Competition, and General Motors’ 2006 Music Contest. she also won Chicago Metromix’s “Rock ‘n’ Vote” 2005. And with over 3,700 friends on MySpace.com, headlining a packed House of Blues last year, and having just headlined at Lollapalooza 2006, Katie Todd clearly makes no time for wasting.
