KATIE COSTELLO | REBEL POP SINGER SONGWRITER
Everyone has a dream.
What are you waiting for?
THIS rebel pop ARTIST HAS BEEN making her own INDEPENDENT records and sharing them with the world SINCE AGE 17.
HER MUSIC INSPIRES CONNECTION, GOOD TIMES, AND LETTING THE LIGHT OF YOUR AUTHENTIC-SELF SHINE BRIGHT.
Katie Costello has been independently self-releasing records since leaving high school, moving to New York City, and dropping her first full-length album "Kaleidoscope Machine" at age 17. When Katie's music was first played on Los Angeles radio in 2008 and featured as KCRW's "Today's Top Tune" legendary radio DJ Nic Harcourt stated, "It's good to know what one wants to be when one grows up. At 17, Hermosa Beach resident Katie Costello is making her path clear."
Now the Brooklyn-based indie-pop songstress Katie Costello reinvents herself with New York City-inspired, 5-track Rock/Pop EP “Rebel Pop Singer Songwriter” now available on iTunes.
“Big pop straight from the heart,” artist Katie Costello describes her unique brand of pop. Executive Produced by Costello and her REBEL POP Records co-founder Vivekan, Katie's REBEL POP SINGER SONGWRITER EP marks the debut of her new sound, feel and look. This 5-Song "Rebel Pop" debut is all about following your dreams, fighting for what's right, and never taking a moment of life for granted. It also celebrates Katie's love for New York City and the ways it inspires her to express her colorful, true self - inviting others to do the same, with anthemic flare.
The Rebel Pop Singer Songwriter said in a recent interview, “I want this music to remind people that life is short, so they should always live it up, be happy, try to make a difference, pursue their dreams, and be themselves. That’s what I’m trying to do being an artist in NYC.” In the spirit of the EP, Katie self-releases this original music via her own record label REBEL POP Records.
Katie Costello started writing songs in her bedroom on a digital piano at age 13, and soon after started performing them at various clubs in LA. Not yet out of High School, Katie was disillusioned by the homogeneity and insulated nature of Southern California's suburban world. At 18, Katie moved to the Lower East Side to seek diversity, inspiration, and to fulfill her dream of making art and music in the creative heart of New York City.
Upon moving to New York, Katie decided to forgo University in order to pursue her art and music full-time. Since self-releasing her first album at age 17, Katie has performed, composed, produced, and collaborated on many records, including her extensive, independent discography via REBEL POP Records. Katie's artistry has continued to evolve with every new release, while always staying true to her classic songwriting, authentic musicality (piano + guitar), raw emotion, and honest lyrics.
Katie's music can be heard in various films and television shows such as: Private Practice, Pretty Little Liars, Switched At Birth, Vampire Diaries, One Tree Hill, 90210, Home and Away, Rookie Blue, Brooklyn Brothers Beat The Best, Craigslist Joe, Never, and more. Katie is also a contributing songwriter on many other artist's projects, and has been featured by Vogue, Teen Vogue, Marie Claire, BlackBook, Paste, Billboard, KCRW and more.
When she's not songwriting, recording, and performing, she's practicing yoga and meditation at Bodhisattva Yoga in Park Slope, Brooklyn - which keeps her looking, feeling, and creating at her best. She credits Vivekan, the Founder of Bodhisattva Yoga, as a constant source of inspiration and motivation behind her music. As both an independent artist + yoga instructor, her passion to share her music and budding yoga instruction is in wish to help others on their journey to rock self-love, health, fulfillment and rebel-hearted freedom.
Katie Costello's REBEL POP Records discography includes: 2 full-length albums (Kaleidoscope Machine, Lamplight); 5 EPs (The City In Me, Follow Your Every Beat, Impossible Things, Universal Spread of Compassionate Wisdom, Rebel Pop Singer Songwriter); + various Singles, including New World. Katie's music is available in Digitial and Audio CD (Hard Copy) format on iTunes + Katie Costello / REBEL POP Records Store.
