About Katie Knipp
Someone once asked a young Elvis, “Who do you sound like?” He replied, “I don’t sound like nobody.”
We could say the same for Katie Knipp. This is a woman with the rarest of gifts—her own voice. She is a three-time Top-10 Billboard Blues Albums artist: #9 for “Katie Knipp Live at The Green Room Social Club,” #4 for “The Well,” and #10 for “Take it With You”. Northern California Blues Americana singer–songwriter Katie Knipp is equipped with powerful vocals and plays a variety of instruments. From boogie woogie piano to slide guitar, Knipp can play just about anything, adding honest harmonica-laden stories in between. Her various performance formats—from raw solo act to full band—capture audiences’ hearts from her first notes.
She has opened for Robert Cray, Jimmie Vaughan, Joan Osborne, The Hidalgos (David Hidalgo of Los Lobos), The Doobie Brothers, Tim Reynolds, Jon Cleary, Ruthie Foster, Joe Louis Walker, The James Hunter Six, William Duvall of Alice in Chains, and many others. She played the 2019 Mammoth Blues Festival as the only solo female act. (That festival included headliners Buddy Guy, Trombone Shorty, Charlie Musselwhite, and more.) She has won two SAMMIES (Sacramento Music Awards) , one in 2019 and another in 2020, for Best Blues Artist. The Sacramento News and Review also nominated her Artist of the Year.
The Country Folk American Blues Music Realm honored her as Female Artist of the Year in both 2020 and 2021. Worldwide support has catapulted her last three Billboard albums on the Roots Music Report for Top Contemporary Blues Albums (2018–present) as well as her BBC 2 Radio debut in February 2022. She released her seventh album, “Katie Knipp Live at The Green Room Social Club,” worldwide on June 10, 2022. The album hit #6 on the iTunes top 40 Blues Albums Chart upon its debut.
