Still working on that hot first release.



Katie Mitchell is a singer/songwriter out of Long Beach, New York, whose powerful voice is creating a buzz amongst audiences along the South Shore. Her musical roots began in Virginia at a young age; she learned harmonies by singing along to artists like the Indigo Girls with her mother, and she’s been writing her own music and performing for live audiences since age 8. She was consistently a solo artist until she met her drummer and percussionist, John Condon, at an open mic in Forest Hills, New York, in 2012. Condon’s adventurous percussion and subtle harmonies made him the perfect complement to the act.

In December 2013, the versatile and multi-talented John Botten joined the band, originally as the group’s bass player. Now the lead guitarist, Botten’s incredible talent gave the band a much more polished and professional sound. The three performed as the primary members of the band from 2013-2015.  From 2016 on they were joined by other current members, Joe Palmieri (bass guitars/keys), Mike Podber (drums), and Andrew Harwood (guitars, bass, and vocals).


In 2018, the band released their debut album, “Heart On Fire,” recorded at Ocean Analog Studios in Long Beach, NY. They worked with Producer/Engineer Peter Kuperschmid who has worked with artists such as Joan Jett, Laura Nyro, and Run DMC.  They perform locally in Long Island and New York City, and are currently writing and recording music for their sophomore album, due sometime in 2019. They have created a stir in the Long Beach live music scene, and are being called “the best little band in Long Beach” by fans and promoters alike. The band does an eclectic set of covers and originals, with a sound ranging from classic rock to folk-pop. They cover artists from Adele and Sheryl Crow to Led Zeppelin and The Beatles. Katie’s originals are influenced by folk, country, and indie rock, appealing to multiple genres and crossover audiences.
