In September 2015, Katie met Kent Wells, Dolly Partons producer and musical producer, in nashville and produced her self titled EP Katie Bates. She worked with Kent for over a year in Nashville at Kent Wells Production, working on her songwriting and vocals. In the first month on SoundCloud, the song After Awhile received over 19,000 plays. In July 2017, Katie started working with Producer 2tone at Blacklite Productions and recorded a new single called “Naked”.
Metaphorically used, it is about stripping someone’s walls down and getting to know that person inside and out. “Naked” got great feedback from online and FM radio shows. The song was also featured on the #1 Billboard charting album “Tropical House Cruises To Jamaica” and earned a #1 plaque from Amada Records.
