Louisiana born pianist/songstress Katelyn Benton discovered her love for piano early, as a baby on the lap of her grandmother. Courtney Benton was a professional concert pianist, and lived just across the yard, so with her music so prevalent, Katelyn quickly uncovered her own connection to the piano. Growing up between Colorado and Louisiana, Katelyn studied classical piano with her grandmother and various teachers, but also learned songs quickly by ear. Katelyn began writing her own songs while in elementary school, and released her first single, "Turn This World Around" when she was 12. Katelyn spent her high school years working as a professional musician in Denver, where she played on the stages of many of the city's acclaimed venues, including Fiddlers Green and Soiled Dove. After high school, Katelyn attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, and toured the nearby cities with her band. Upon graduation from Berklee, Katelyn moved to Los Angeles and released her self-produced EP (Once - 2009). Later that year, her song "Impossible Love" won the Best Music Video award at the JPF Awards in Nashville. In 2010 Katelyn began working with film composers and producers Scott Nickoley (South Park) and Ryan Franks (TripTank). Together, they broke ground on Katelyn's upcoming full length album, thanks to the funding from a successful Kickstarter Campaign. FIX is due out early 2016, with a sneak peek EP release this Fall. Katelyn's music is influenced by the sounds of Carol King, Sara Bareilles, Ben Folds, and Fiona Apple, as well as classical composers such as Debussy and Chopin - It's piano-pop with a cinematic twist. With thoughtful lyrics, award-winning songwriting, and demonstrations of piano mastery, her performance has been described as "refreshing, emotional" and "magical."
