Katie Frassinelli is a singer-songwriter who came to the Boston area from Philadelphia via Berkeley, California.  She was a founding member of the Shotgun Players in Berkeley where she acted and directed until a handsome set designer married her and brought her home to the East Coast. Katie started writing songs when her twins finally started sleeping through the night, and those midnight scribblings eventually became her debut CD, Let Me Down Easy.

 

Katie's songs are intimate stories of love and the joy and heartbreak it can bring. With a rich, soothing voice reminiscent of Natalie Merchant and Kris Delmhorst, Katie's songs flow over you and into your heart. 

 

You gave a really beautifully sung and thoughtful presentation of your songs.  The audience was very quiet and captive of the words you shared.  Also there were not only poets there, but songwriters and authors and storytellers and about half who just came out to listen... and that is very cool to reach out to such a mix of people and have them carry your vibes and words and music out to whatever place and path they next go.
