New England Music Award-winning Katie Dobbins draws from a palette of contemporary folk and new country to create a genre uniquely her own.
With a mastery of storytelling and the heart of a poet, this soulful songstress captures elements of life and relationships in ways that lift the spirit and challenge the soul. Dobbins' music has been featured by renown press outlets including Deli Magazine and Boston Voyager. Carolyn Kruse of Country 102.5 WKLB raved, "Sweet but bold, Katie's voice is reminiscent of one of her heroes, Jewel, but only deeper . . . a fearless spirit with a gentle touch." Tom Bianchi, Talent Buyer at Somerville's The Burren, voiced "her message is as important and symbiotic with the music. With gorgeous harmony and song Katie lyrically weaves in stories of healing, growing and moving forward through the struggles of life." Dobbins enhances this energy through her sophomore album, There Is Light, with remarkably honest songs that capture seasons of both hardship and joy, but hold onto the hope that light will always illuminate and overpower darkness. There Is Light was nominated for Album of the Year at The 2019 New England Music Awards, and songs from the album have hit airwaves on prominent New England radio stations including The River, The Hawk, and WATD.
