Katie Rose – Singer, Composer, Conductor, Writer
I love singing and helping people sing!
Described by The Guardian as a ‘fine singer,’ and ‘an eye (and ear) opener’ by fRoots Magazine, Katie’s latest album Flame follows three previous albums and releases including a song to accompany Road to Peace, a film about the Dalai Lama. She has collaborated with artists including Gill Manly, Tom Morley, Shri Sriram, The False Beards and Barefoot Doctor.
Committed to making the wellbeing benefits of singing accessible and inclusive, Katie has directed sessions for over 20 choirs across London and choral events for organisations including NHS England and St Christopher’s Hospice. Convinced of the power of singing to make waves in the world, she co-directs Sing For Water London, an annual fundraiser for WaterAid and directed Festival of Peace Croydon 2018, centring on community performances of the London Mozart Players Anthem for Peace.
With 20 years of experience coaching individuals at all stages of their creative journey – from shy beginners to established arts, education and wellbeing professionals – Katie offers a holistic approach, seeing voice and creative expression as intricately connected with all areas of life. An experienced facilitator, she brings a full creative toolkit and respects the uniqueness of every person. She offers completely confidential counsel and wise witness.
Committed to broadcasting positive news about the arts and wellbeing, Katie has written for fRoots Magazine, Turning Point Magazine and Croydon Citizen, and her poetry has been published in two collections. She has broadcast for Croydon Radio and launched her Vocal Revolution podcast during lockdown 2020.
