Originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but now calling Nashville home, singer-songwriter Katie Buxton picked up the guitar and wrote her first song at age twelve and since then has focused on songwriting and music. In 2012 she was chosen as a finalist in the Sing for the Trees Songwriting Contest with her song “The World Moves By” and in 2013, Katie attended the Berklee Five Week Performance Program where she was a finalist in the Songwriting Showcase and received mentorship from Melissa Ferrick and Sally Taylor, daughter of James Taylor.
Katie’s four-song debut EP, From Songbirds, was released in March, 2016 and now, Buxton is readying a new, heartfelt single. "You Flew."
"You Flew" is about loving someone who, for whatever reason, is not ready to love or be loved and how the person left behind must learn to let go. Buxton’s airy vocals, accompanied by a sparse arrangement and an ethereal, atmospheric melody, spark a swell of emotions that touch deeply and intensely.
"I was a building, you were a bird
I was rooted and hoped you were
I wanted steady, I wanted you
But I loved deeper than you asked me to
So you flew"
