Welcome to my blog! 🙂 This is my first blog posting so sit back, relax and have a cup of tea.
My name is Katie Haywood I am 26 years old and I am studying music at Whitireia Polytech. I am currently in my third and final year of study so I’m at the beginning of my journey and on the cusp of greatness.
I have been singing since I could talk, my Father can remember me, aged 4, in the back of his Volks Wagen Beetle singing along to Peggy Lee’s jazz hit “Fever” pitch perfect! He passed on his passion for music through osmosis so I am destined to be a performer.
The style of music I am mainly interested in singing is light classical, i.e. Broadway style show tunes and some Operatic Arias. However, I have over the past four years been learning a more contemporary style of singing, I was initially classically trained.
So if you’re partial to a show tune, aria or power ballad I’m your gal! You could very well like my style of singing if you’re a fan of the likes of: Sarah Brightman, Elaine Paige, Patti LuPone, Hayley Westenra, Charlotte Church and Katherine Jenkins. Some of my other musical influences include: David Bowie, Christina Aguilera, Eva Cassidy, Celtic Woman, The Rolling Stones, Nightwish, Evanescence and Adele.
I am on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube…
Hope you had a wonderful day and enjoy blogging! 🙂
