Born and raised an hour's drive from a mall or movie theater, Katile (pronounced Katie Lee) was often left to create her own entertainment with friends—performing songs and dances for her family. She quickly landed her first professional gig performing aboard Carnival Cruise Lines, singing every genre she could. Possessing a gambling spirit, she later hit land waiting tables at the Cutting Room in New York City and within a month met producer Matty Amendola sitting in on the drums with Adam Levine. At the right place at the right time, Katile found a producer with a shared vision of her evolving craft.
Katile released her debut album “Don’t Go Away” in July of 2015. Produced & co-written by Matty Amendola. Amendola also brought in Grammy Award - winning engineer Butch Jones and special guests Jody Porter (Fountains Of Wayne) and Grammy Award winning super-producer and singer Mark Hudson. Matty says, "It's a true testament to her talent and potential for these legends to want to work with an unknown artist on their debut album."
Katile made her return to the studio immediately following that fall. Simultaneously writing and recording again, she obeyed her instincts, organically developing a seductively sinful groove combined with a lyrical sense of triumph, ultimately birthing her new EP, “Real Religion.” Along with a music video to the tittle track,
directed by Andy Strohl and Matty Amendola.
Katile went on to perform regularly in NYC, where her performances have garnered her an interview with NY1 news, and mentions in The New York Post, Page Six, Hollywood Life, Bravo & Time Out NY.
In the spring of 2018 Katile partnered up with world-wide renowned drummer and producer Mark Eckert to perfect her developing sound as an artist. She released two more singles “So Caught Up” that summer and the following spring “For You".
Katile is continuing to charm in 2020 with her “Euphoric Vocals and Infectious pop.” She most recently joined together with Song-writer & musician Ben Antelis and Songwriter/Producer Nick Sadler on her newest single “Say Sorry” which is out now.
