Fort born and raised KATIE has been making quite a splash in the Madison area music scene.
“She can sing you to the depths of your longing or shake you alive with her beats. Since 2008 Katie Scullin has been that little engine—chugging up the hill and gaining momentum with her lyrics, lights and loveliness. From quiet listening rooms to high-energy festivals she easily conjures sublime melodies and moody sensations with a tap of the toe and a strum of her guitar. We want to be there with her. In the light. In the darkness. She makes it look so easy, and we immediately feel like a confidante. Scullin continues to challenge herself and her sound by diving into new projects and producing impressive works as an independent artist.
In 2009 Scullin’s rock group Rivalry played Wisconsin’s largest music festival Summerfest in the Emerging Artist Series. A couple years later she took the stage as front woman with techno-soul group Star Persons who reached great heights in the Madison area being nominated and winning multiple Madison Area Music Awards. The accolades kept coming. Scullin nabbed a nomination for “Best Alternative Artist” at the Madison Area Music Awards in 2011. In 2013 she released her first solo project EP “She Smiled” and a year later was crowned Best Singer/Songwriter by 105.5 Triple M’s Project M Competition as well as Best Local Musician in the Jefferson County Daily Poll.
Her style shifts and changes and it’s all inspired. In 2016 The Walrus (An Experimental Project), produced with help from producer Hunter Connors Herm, showcased Scullin’s amazing range and acute collaborative instincts. In the dream-like rock lullaby sequence, our vocal dynamo is backed by Darren Marabelli on guitar, D.J. Scullin on guitar, Travis Drumm on drums, and Nate Wiswall on bass.
Whether peddling a razor-sharp ballad or an energetic pop track Scullin commands attention. And now—finally—she’s bringing it all home in a full-length album called Pieces. This collection of tunes which highlights Scullin’s trademark soothing cadence and innocent curiosity brings all the feels. From catchy “You and I” to the rolling jam “Dream Awake” it’s easy to see why she’s the musical darling of backwoods pubs, celebratory stages and your own hallowed living room. She’s a master at her craft and has got energy and emotion to spare.”
