Katie Jones is an 8th semester student at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, dual majoring in Music Business/Management & Professional Music. She is currently finishing up her last year in Boston, MA after completing Berklee’s LA internship program, where she interned at Live Nation. At Live Nation, she worked closely along side some of the finest business professionals in the Club & Theater Touring Department.
Born in Danville, VA, Katie was exposed to southern rock and blues music her whole adolescent life. At the age of 12, Katie moved to Phoenix, AZ where she started to pursue her musical career at Arizona School for the Arts, majoring in Music & Theater. Her musical interests grew and she took in the sounds of R&B and Hip-Hop. Not only did Katie participate in vocal lessons and theater classes, but she danced from the young age of 3. Her musical influences range from The Allman Brothers to Ke$ha to Tupac.
“Every kind of music has a purpose in this industry, to sell, to touch lives, to make people want to move, regardless it’s a purpose. Everyone needs to respect that.” -Katie Jones
She has performed with The Musical Theater Club at Berklee, Danielle Scott’s Hip-Hop Ensemble in Boston, MA, Paper Heart’s Benefit for Hospice of the Valley in Phoenix, AZ, and competed at numerous vocal competitions in Arizona.
Willing to learn and make an impact in this industry, Katie plans to graduate in 2011 from Berklee. Following Berklee, she would like to receive her MBA from Suffolk University.
