Interview with Katie Belle
Hello Katie Belle! So lovely to speak with you today!
Tell us about your latest project!
My latest project is my new single Now That I Know!! It's a fun breakup song that has kind of a film theme. It was written by the amazing Haley Morrissey, Jean Castel, Craig Erwin and Josquin Des Pres, but it's special to me because my ex-boyfriend was into film so even though I didn't write it it's still personal.
It's about finally having enough of a bad relationship and finding the guts to end it.
What is a dream venue for you to perform in?
I have always wanted to sell out my hometown stadium, Mercedes Benz in Atlanta. And of course, it would be a dream to perform at the Grammys.
What has been keeping you inspired to create recently?
Right now, just my personal life and the world around me. I'm still dealing with a breakup and being 22, trying to find myself and enjoy the ride. Plus, there's so much going on in the world right now that makes me feel a million different things. There's so much inspiration everywhere I look.
What has been the biggest game changer in your career this far?
American Idol was a pretty life-changing experience but then covid hit. Im feeling so blessed to be back out and performing again, i think this year is going to be my biggest year since idol a lot is changing right now so I'm really excited for the future.
Who would you say is your biggest cheerleader in your career?
100% my mom. That lady has been everywhere and through everything with me. We’ve lived together and learned together; she's even had to be my manager at some points. She's truly been with me every step of the way and my #1.
How important do you think it is for artists to know and understand music history?
I think it’s important just out of respect but I don't think it’s completely necessary. Music is art, there's no right or wrong way to do it, there is only creating it. And I think sometimes the less you know the better. The more naive and unaware you are about the past, the more creative you can make the future.
Any upcoming projects you want us to know about?
I'm working on releasing several songs this year! I have my next one releasing in June and I can't wait for you guys to hear it!!!
Please let everyone know where they can keep up with you and your music!
