    The Katie Simone Episode

    Stunning vocalist Katie Simone joins Petticoat Rule to talk about her insane schedule as a full time working musician, splitting her time between original solo work, weekend cover gigs, weddings, coaching, and, of course, practicing... as well as a bit of fun thrown in at open stages and karaoke! She also wows us with her unbelievable 'siren' call, and explains her perspective on the differences in attitudes towards women between the original music and cover music scenes.

It's inspiring to hear women share their personal experiences with music and the music industry, especially in a small and unique market like Pittsburgh. There's a very down to earth quality about it. Definitely adding to my lineup.
