In this special Holiday-themed edition of The GATE’s Media Box podcast, and to celebrate the return of the podcast, we're switching gears for an all-music format with five holiday songs to get you in the spirit of the season. Featuring Kate Nash, Lindi Ortega, Sleepy Sun, Sebastien & Katie, and Meiko.
Katie Rox might be best known as Katie B., the former lead singer of the rock band Jakalope, but she's made a name for herself in the years since as a singer and songwriter, most recently releasing her country-influenced CD Pony Up in 2011.
Things have changed a bit since the last time I spoke to singer and songwriter Katie B, who you might know as Katie Rox. She's been on an adventure few artists get to enjoy, and it all came very early in her career. Signed as the lead singer for the rock band Jakalope after an audition at the music studio she worked, Katie toured as far away as Japan with the group, released a number of popular singles, and they were even nominated for a handful of awards.
