Performing: Saturday 30 Sept
A small town girl with a big voice & a story to tell, music and singing has always been a big part of Katelann’s life and an absolute passion of her’s which has been passed down from both sides of the family. Katelann’s musical journey began around the age of 7 when she was handed down her Grandad’s Guitar who was locally known as the chinchilla slim after he sadly passed away.
One of the major highlights and pushes in Katelann’s career was being one of 29 Artist’s selected from around the world to attend the CMAA Academy of 2020. This opportunity really ignited the passion in her musical career and pushed her career to the next level where she landed a spot at last year’s Big Skies festival, an opportunity she’s been hoping to grasp for quite a while… Only to be asked back again this year!!
Katelann’s first single Grandad’s Guitar topped the Australian Independent Music Charts at #4 and made her debut at #2 on the iTunes singer songwriter chart. Katelann’s full EP “Different Kind Of High” which also Debuted at #2 on the iTunes Country Music Charts and is now available on all major streaming platforms. Since release, the EP has had over 250,000 streams on Spotify alone and made some major Country Music Playlists on both Spotify and Apple Music platforms.
Growing up in the small town of Miles Qld, Katelann boasts how she has always had the support of her amazing community and surrounds saying it’s the community that has helped her live out her dreams and for that she is forever grateful. Katelann’s songwriting definitely hits home as she writes all from personal and relatable experiences that have a tendency to draw the listener in.
