Katie Weeks has been involved in music her whole life. She began singing before she could talk, playing musical games with her mother. She then dabbled in violin and piano before starting singing lessons at the age of 9. From 11 to 18 she attended Durham School of the Arts where she focused on theatre and alto saxophone, continuing private singing lessons in her free time. During this period she frequently performed in musicals and plays at DSA as well as Young People’s Performing Company and competed in various vocal competitions.
In 2006 she graduated from Bard College with a BA in German Studies, but she never gave up singing or performing. After moving away from music for a while and spending some time living in Berlin, she attended Leeds University and received her Masters in Music Performance in 2012. She has been teaching voice for the past 3 years and continues to perform locally whenever possible.
