She worked with Kent for over a year in Nashville at Kent Wells Production, working on her songwriting and vocals. In the first month on SoundCloud, the song After Awhile received over 19,000 plays. In July 2017, Katie started working with Producer 2tone at Blacklite Productions and recorded a new single called “Naked”.

The song was also featured on the #1 Billboard charting album “Tropical House Cruises To Jamaica” and earned a #1 plaque from Amada Records.
On September 14, 2017, she released her current single titled The One. She co-wrote “The One” with Producer David Snow at Little Hipster Music out in LA. Katie plays drums, bass, guitar, and piano. The song has earned over 800 bds and mediabase spins because of her recent feature on Billboard. Follow & Support Talented artist Katie Bates buy purchasing her song on iTunes.
