Katie Dee & The Quaking Aspens
Katie Dee began her musical career playing piano and violin. Inspired by her family's love of traditional Appalachian murder ballads, her own dark sense of humour, and her talents as a storyteller, she began the gothic americana outfit "Katie Dee & The Quaking Aspens" in 2013.
