As you all know, Katie goes to Tokyo was an experiment with a special goal – to play a show in Tokyo one day. Well, that day has come. In fact it came and went. And I was lucky to tour in wonderful South Korea and amazing China on the way as well.
I’ve had the most fantastic time working on this project, but since I’ve reached my goal, I have started working on a new project called Tiger Rosa. This doesn’t mean that I will never do a show as Katie goes to Tokyo again.
So far, I’ve done some collaborating with a Canadian artist called Buck 65. If you want to hear some of the songs we wrote, google “Neverlove” and look for the songs featuring Tiger Rosa. We also went on a heartbreak tour last year to Australia, France, United Kingdom and Canada. It was a roller coaster for sure and what stuck with me the most after the tour was all the nice people we met on the way. Many of them wanted to know when my next album will be out. I’m working on it.

I just got back from my lovely Japan tour. For me it was so much more than just a tour. Going to Tokyo was the reason why I started the Katie goes to… project. And Tokyo was fantastic! I only wish I could have stayed longer. I did 5 gigs and a couple of interviews during my short stay. Here are a couple of pics.
