Katrina Announces U.S. Tour with the Legendary Musical Icon Meat Loaf
Los Angeles, CA – June 13, 2012 – Red Red Records has announced Los Angeles pop singer-songwriter Katrina will be the musical guest opening as direct support to the legendary musical icon Meat Loaf on the North American leg of his “Mad, Mad, World” Tour this summer. Katrina will be performing on 16 U.S. dates beginning July 21 though September 2. The up and coming pop artist has been on a U.S. tour behind her debut album In the Blink of an Eye and latest single “So Eden.” The track was recently included in CBS Radio Online and YAHOO! MUSIC stations online promotions for their CHR and HOT AC stations across the country and Katrina is currently featured in Clear Channel Media’s iHeartRadio “NEW! Artists To Watch” campaign. View the video for “So Eden” online now at YouTube: http://youtu.be/NhH4SFMgnh0.
In support of her forthcoming single "Watch Me Walk Away", Katrina has teamed up with powerhouse writing and production team, Holly Knight (Pat Benatar "Love Is A Battlefield,” Tina Turner "Better Be Good To Me,” Aerosmith "Rag Doll," Rod Stewart "Love Touch," to name a few), songwriter Charlie Midnight (Hilary Duff, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears), studio wizard Luke Tozour (Katy Perry, Adam Lambert, Mika, and P!nk) and Grammy Award-winning producer Val Garay (James Taylor, Kim Carnes, Linda Ronstadt, Neil Diamond, The Motels). The new single will hit the airwaves late summer. In the meantime the current single "So Eden" has cracked the radio AC format Top 30 and is on it's way toward breaking into the Top 20.
In Europe, support for "So Eden" is continuing to grow with radio stations in the UK now spinning the single, as the video moves into power rotation. Industry trade AAA Music UK proclaimed it “a rich & soulful lament to lost love…a well produced pop record, influenced by rock, with strong, powerful vocals and an impressive vocal range” with The Daily Mail writing a glowing feature on the singer. Last year, following the success of her debut pop single “Shame on Me,” Katrina performed a series of live performances in London, capping off the run with a showcase at the BBC Club in the BBC’s London headquarters. With two current singles charting in two countries, “Shame on Me” is still being played on radio stations across the country.
Katrina’s debut dance single “OPM” (Other People’s Money), hit the top 20 last summer on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Chart and topped the DJ Times Record Pool Picks. View the video for “OPM” now on YouTube and check out “OPM the Remixes” six-song EP available now on iTunes.
