Long time no see.

Don't worry, I'm still alive. Life just threw me a huge curve recently so I've been out for a while.

News (that I have yet to post on the website -- bad julie!):

- I graduated (yay!)
- I'm going to Berklee (yay!!)
- I just recorded 4 songs in the studio (yay!!!)

I had a lot of fun in the studio with these songs. Hard work, but it just amazed me to see how much I've grown -- all these songs are pretty different from each other. One song has a godsmack-vibe to it (co-written with my freind Rick), another one has a jazz vibe (I used to HATE jazz!), Another one kinda sounds like Sheryl Crow's 'Soak up the Sun', and the last one is just a fun song I made up at camp with a fun marching band kinda beat to it, thanks to the awesome drummer dude, Anthony.

I'm also trying to get ready to be out on my own -- needs to happen soon. I think when you're 24 you gotta be independent as far as insurance and all that stuff. Right now I'm 22, and it's totally possible I'll be going insane with real life stuff while I'm in Berklee.

To prep. for Berklee I'm doing lots of workshops, some @ Berklee, one @ Common Ground on the hill. Gonna learn the theory stuff, playing stuff, recording stuff. I'm really excited about 2 classes I'm gonna end up taking: Hawaiian guitar and Icelandic Singing. Really hoping to widen my musical taste, abilities and everything.

It's late, and I go mix my songs on monday in the studio, so I'm gonna go. Hope you guys are doing well and having awesome summers!

Hi! My name's Katie (I swear I'm not one of those annoying robot things :-P )
I have a community on LJ that promotes a band called Jaded Thorns. They're a NY band and really good. I'm searching for people who have interests in bands that kind of sound like Jaded Thorns. I'm trying to find people who would at least visit their web site and give their songs a listen to. You can check them out here, their official web site. If you like them, go join their street team, the Root System. If you do, you can access a whole other page for members with banners, special contests, and other fun stuff!
If you would like to join the community, you can. Just go here.
And if you like what you hear, don't forget to check out the page with their tour dates. Trust me, I've been to three shows and I've not been let down once!
