She has performed at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, and she is a regularly featured artist on WXPN, the University of Pennsylvania’s public radio station. In addition to releasing her own music, Barbato composes music for TV and film, such as the theme she wrote for the movie Sugar, starring Shenae Grimes and Marshall Allman. Her song “Magical Ending” was recently featured in the Netflix drama “Yankee”, the MTV series “Busch Family Brewed”, and several of her songs have been featured on the Australian television show “Neighbours”.

Katie has shared the stage with Lucy Wainwright Roche, Mutlu, Shawn Mullins, Melissa Ferrick, Deb Talan and Steve Tannen, Citizen Cope with Meshell Ndegeocello, Ginger Coyle, Liz Longley, Danielle Miraglia, Rise Twain, Darlingside, Mckain Lakey, and Liz Cooper and the Stampede.

“It’s a work of beauty all around, evocative of just the sort of reflective songwriting and artistry that we could never get enough from out of those like Barbato.” -For Folk’s Sake

“The peace-loving Philly native has an innate knack for soaring major/ minor key transitions, imbued with timely, sweet-spot lyrics and supported with rich, cinematic accompaniment. Comparisons to Neko Case and Gillian Welch are perhaps a little too obvious here, as Katie seems to carve out her own niche as a folk rock formalist who creates from a deep well of experience.” -The Vinyl District
