NYC-based actress/musician Katie Vincent releases the new CD, Pickings: Music from the Motion Picture. Co-starring in the indie film Pickings, Vincent used the context of her character in the film as an inspiration for her songs.
Katie Vincent attributes her gritty style of her playing and sound to her character, Scarlet Lee-Haywood, daughter of the main character, Jo Lee-Haywood.
Scarlet is quick-witted, sharp-tongued, and a girl who sticks to her convictions when it comes to her family. She is wise beyond her years due to the dark past that follows her mother. It is from the trials and tribulations of Scarlet and the country influences of artists like Chris Stapleton that make the music of the film come together.
Katie Vincent has always been involved in the arts, Starting from the age of 7, she has written her own music, but it wouldn’t be until her 20’s that she bought her own guitar.
As she grew up she fell in love with musical theater and acting, deciding that was her path. After receiving her BFA in Drama from Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, she has earned several film credits, including: Prego (Usher Morgan), Death (and Disco Fries) (Dennis Cahlo), Before The Snow (Manmade Productions), Hotel (Manmade), BadPuss: A Popumentary (Emily Weist) among other titles. Katie has also performed in stage productions with Columbia University’s MFA Drama Program, Playhouse On Park, Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, and more.
Katie has come to combine her love of music and acting through her role in the independent western-noir film, Pickings.
