Katie uses music as a way to express and process her feelings, when she feels like she can't talk about them. Her advice to young musicians is to keep expressing yourself, and don't let people bring you down just because you didn't have the same path in life. Art is art no matter what your background is, you don't need to go to college to label yourself as a musician.
"Art is art, it's an expression of yourself"
