Katie began performing at a very early age in her home county of Yorkshire and proceeded to gain a wealth of experience in the industry working with many household names. Katie was drawn to music of the bygone years and had a passion and love for those eras but the music of Dame Vera Lynn and the wartime era has always been her first love, so much so, Katie wanted to build a career honouring and preserving the music and memories of that time and The D-Day Darlings were born.
With Katie’s determined spirit, the group went from strength to strength, forming strong links with the military, The Royal British Legion and Dame Vera Lynn. In 2018, the centenary commemorations, the group reached the live finals of Britain’s Got Talent and subsequently a two album record deal with Sony Music followed. The D-Day Darlings achieved a top five position with their VE Day Celebration edition album in 2020!
Katie is no stranger to charity work, raising thousands of pounds in funds and awareness of the Royal British Legion for over a decade. Katie was invited by Dame Vera Lynn for afternoon tea and became even more inspired to continue her music and legacy, and began writing music in her honour. “I’ll never forget that special day, her warm smile and genuine kindness. The wartime singing lesson she gave me inspired me forever and I will always remember everything she taught me’
