- Katie Owen Singing Live - In Association with Unseen TV

  Her 200,000 Facebook followers and fans describe Katie as “mesmerizing”, “magnetic”,

  “sultry” and “sensuous” - added together she’s Katie Owen - the pint sized pop star with one

  hell of a voice.


  Katie Owen is a rare talent; an intriguing mixed personality Katie Owen keeps us all guessing – a true

  Libran she is multi-faceted, a creature of light and dark, full of inspiration and charm and this unique blend

  is evident in her music.


  She is two sides of one coin –Yin and Yang – Katie is an intensely focused, infectiously relentless,

  electrifying individual yet her alter ego contradicts this by being languorous and impassive– she can be all

  of the above which explains why people simply say “there’s something about Katie…”
