Katie LaRue was born and raised in Kernersville, North Carolina. She attended Charleston Southern University, where she played on the Women’s Basketball team. After college she attended Graduate School at Winthrop University to study business.
Katie started singing and playing the guitar in 2000, after a serious mountain bike accident. After her accident, she lost the use of her right arm and used her guitar playing as therapy to regain her dexterity. Her songwriting career began later, in 2005. Katie’s musical influences range from folk to classic rock. Her sound is unique but is often compared to Missy Higgins, Ingrid Michaelson, Brandi Carlile or Tracy Chapman, with her strong vocals and solo guitar.
Katie has recorded 2 albums, 7 Reasons Why and Little Blue Loveseat. She is currently working on a third album due out in September. She plays in the North Carolina area and the surrounding area to a strong fan base. She has opened for Adrianne, a current member of the Rescues, Garrison Starr, Bess Rogers, Lelia Broussard, Allison Weiss and Brianna Lane.
