Meet Popular’s new obsession, singer and songwriter, Katie Welch! We can’t stop listening to her new album “Typical Psycho”! If you live in Los Angeles, you can see her sing at the “Vivienne Westwood Rooftop Sessions” on Melrose Place. Also, come join us at the “UNITED CALIFORNIA” concert, at the SkyBar at Mondrian Hotel, where she will be performing! The event is to benefit the victims of the California fires and the borderline shooting. We got a chance to sit down with Katie and ask her some of our exclusive questions.

Tell Us about your new music?
It’s the most eclectic project I’ve ever made. I really wanted to show every side of myself and all the music and styles that’s inspired me throughout my life, so it’s got everything from dance pop records to heart wrenching ballads to groovy funk to rap so I’m really excited to share it with the world.
What inspires you to be an artist (write/sing…etc) ?
I’ve always been a performer and a creative little weirdo, I love people, I love the energy exchange of creating something out of nothing and sharing it with people who can connect to it.\`~~|j ifg Dream Concert (any band, any decade)

What does popular mean to you?
Popular means living your truth, surrounding yourself with things and people that inspire you. Authenticity is magic and being able to express yourself and your truth is the most powerful thing in the world.
Can you tell us about any new music or projects you have coming up?
I’m starting a really cool rooftop concert series with the Vivienne Westwood store in Los Angeles, and I’m gonna start dropping singles of the album in the next couple months.
