Katie Nicole Dix was born in Bakersfield, California. Her desire for being on stage began when she was very young and is best known in her hometown playing the title roles and lead vocals in numerous musical theater productions, contests, and exhibitions.
Katie was first introduced to country music by legendary singer Buck Owens. When he learned of her talent, he showcased her regularly at his world-renowned Crystal Palace stage. This unique opportunity paved the way for her to be seen and heard on a larger scale. Buck’s mentoring, influence, and encouragement inspired Katie to strive for a full-time career in entertainment.
After Buck’s passing, Katie moved to Las Vegas where she was quickly chosen to front a country band known as The Moronix. Soon after, she was recruited by ENVY, a premier top 40s dance band in Vegas, as well as American Superstars at the Stratosphere. Moving to Los Angeles, Katie was instrumental in helping showcase Vegas talent to Mastros restaurants in California.
Katie has also revived her country music career by forming her own dynamic self-titled band in Los Angeles. Katie has gained exposure and momentum and regularly visits Nashville collaborating with industry songwriters to create that Cali-Nash vibe in her music. Her singles, Wanted It to Be You”, “Second Best” ,“Don’t Count the Stars” and “The Break In” are available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Music.
