UMG Nashville has signed singer-songwriter Catie Offerman. Originally from New Braunfels, TX, Catie grew up on a horse ranch. Homeschooled by her father in the tack room of their barn, she started playing piano at the age of four which eventually led her to pursue other instruments such as violin, accordion and more. When she was 11, Offerman’s accordion teacher asked her to join their polka band where they traveled across Texas playing festivals, local shows and Oktoberfests. A few years later, she attended the Berklee College of Music where she graduated at the age of 19. After spending some time in Los Angeles, she moved to Nashville to pursue country music.
Two years ago, she inked a publishing deal with UMPG, and was featured in The Highwomen‘s “Redesigning Women” video. Offerman is currently collaborating with Ryan Beaver and Aaron Eshuis on her debut project.
