Once Upon a Time
Katie Eagleson has been singing in the Philadelphia area for over 25 years. Her varied performance experiences have led to a diverse repertoire, but it is in her interpretation of the Great American Songbook where she truly shines. She has the ability to sing with great attention to detail coupled with emotional depth. Fellow musicians, as well as listeners, comment on Katie's great pitch, diction, and ability to swing. At the same time, her voice has been described as "soulful" and "as though she truly means every word." As one reviewer put it, "She displays a stunning vibrato that she uses for touching emotional impact." When Katie sings, it is clear that she has great respect and appreciation for the composer. Performing songs by the Gershwins, Cole Porter, Stephen Sondheim, the Bergmans, etc., she delivers the lyrics - whether sad, romantic, or funny - with great sincerity. "A song is likely to become a favorite of mine if the words express something I can sing with emotional honesty," said Katie. "When those words are combined with well-crafted music, I think the impact of each is intensified. And that to me is magic." In May, 2007, Katie released her debut CD, "Once Upon A Time" recorded at Grammy Award-winning MorningStar Studios. "Making a record has been something I've wanted to do for about 30 years," stated Katie. "It's really a milestone in my life and my career. It's been challenging, and fulfilling, and exciting to record my interpretations of these songs with such great musicians. I appreciated every minute of the experience."
