Katy Kinard is every venue's girl-next-door. Her music ranges from deeply introspective/profound, to fun and clever, and finds a way to draw in all ages.
She's a Nashville artist with four albums, last year's #1 song on the "Christian Music in English" International charts ("When You Found Me"), winner of the 2013 International CWIMA showcase, the '09 Independent Music Award Popular Vote, and Embassy Music's '05 regional competition. Katy's song "World's Largest Peanut" took first prize in the 2009 International Acoustic Music Awards folk category; her song "Sunshine," second.
A keyboardist and guitarist, Katy's style of music is acoustic pop/rock with a touch of folk, along the lines of Nichole Nordeman, Sheryl Crow and Sarah McLachlan. Songwriting and spiritual influences include C.S. Lewis, Phillip Yancey and Mike Yaconelli. Katy has a heart for keeping the hymns alive, and if desired, also offers a worship set with some of the most well loved songs and the stories behind the hymns.
She would love to share her heart and stories and get to know those who know yours! Feel free to check out her websites:
