Katrina Swift

Co-founder/Head A&R

Katrina is a co-founder of KWS Blank Canvas Music and a singer-songwriter. Her music experience and education make her a natural for heading the A&R side of this fledgling proactive company.

 

Early training in classical voice and multiple solo performances with orchestras in the US and Europe provided a platform for her vocal energy. Her penchant for songwriting was encouraged by A&R Legend Steve Popovich who told her to “keep writing” and “sing in different languages” after hearing her first song written when she was ten years old.


Expanding her musical interests to the more creative side, she attended the Professional Children’s School in New York, Oxford Brookes University, and graduated Manhattanville College in NY with a BA in Music. While growing up in the U.S with frequent visits across the pond, she developed an appreciation for English culture and the music scene.

 

Katrina’s kinship with entrepreneurial and musical influences fused with inspiration from graduating Bath Spa University’s MA Songwriting program (Distinction) helped lay the foundation to create a dynamic music company that would provide opportunities for emerging and seasoned songwriters and support musicians in sharing their music with the world, maximizing their income, and protecting their rights.
