ABOUT

Jersey meets SoCal.

NYC indie rock band and songwriting duo. Katie Lee Hill and Travis Artz.

 

Known for her work on Apple TV+'s SERVANT and NBC's NEW AMSTERDAM, Katie draws from a 70's SoCal rock background while expounding on what it means to be Asian American in the Americana genre. Known for his work as Transformer "Hot Rod" on Cartoon Network and Netflix, Travis draws from his Jersey boy background while deconstructing what masculinity means in the rock genre.

 

Their single "I'll Still Be Here" (produced by The Cutting Room's Joseph Colmenero) was recently selected as 1 of 58 Semi-Finalists (Americana genre) out of 10,000 worldwide entries in the 2021 Unsigned Only competition.

Shared billing on past shows include Jai'Len Josey, Ali Stroker, and Syd & Mike. Katie & Travis individually have performed at the Beacon Theater, Yankee Stadium, Carnegie Hall, and the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden.
