Katrina Carlson graduated with honors from Brown University with a degree in International Relations, Foreign Policy and Diplomacy with a focus on nuclear arms control. Naturally, she is a singer-songwriter.
Singing always played a big part in Katrina''s life and provided a way for her to distinguish herself from her ten older siblings. She began playing the piano at age eight and the guitar at age twelve. She continued on her musical path through school and was trained classically at the Manhattan School of Music and the Brooklyn College Opera program.
Her early performance experience ranged from the Aspen Music Festival to the off-Broadway Cole Porter review, You Never Know. Her range in music is vast, singing opera arias to big band tunes. Her career has taken her from the desert landscape she called home in Paradise Valley, Arizona, to New York City and finally, to Los Angeles, where she now resides in the oceanside city of Santa Monica.
On the left coast, Katrina acted in both film and television while she continued her singing and songwriting. She co-starred opposite Sean Young and Penny Marshall in the feature film Special Delivery, which also featured Nell Carter, and played a bad girl criminal on America''s Most Wanted among other roles. For any of you trekkies out there, Katrina played a co-starring role in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as the Bajoran officer in the trilogy "The Siege".
Nevertheless, she was always loyal to her musical roots. Katrina has sung for the likes of Barbra Streisand, Warren Beatty, Gregory Peck, Annette Bening, Oliver Stone and Shirley MacLaine to name a few. After placing two songs in the film Special Delivery, Katrina was inspired to produce a full-length album. The songs on Apples for Eve were both written by her alone and co-written with her Emmy Award-winning producer, Ron Cohen.
Katrina released her debut CD of original songs, Apples for Eve, in conjunction with the premiere of the feature film Go Tigers! at the Sundance Film Festival in 2001. Three of her songs from the CD are included in the film. Katrina''s tour in support of Apples for Eve began at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City in January of 2001 and also included datesthroughout Ohio, at New York City''s infamous CBGB''s and in and around Southern California. A special treat was sharing the stage with Joan Jett during the NFL''s Hall Of Fame festivities in Canton, OH.
As exciting as this past year has been, it is only a glimpse of things to come! Stay tuned...
