Katile (pronounced Katie Lee) is a singer-songwriter based in New York City. Not too long ago, she released a charming electro-pop tune, entitled, “For You”.

Katile – “For You” single

“Every time I get close I run away. I need more and more attention every day. I’m not easy to love. Every time I get hurt I fall apart. If you piss me off my tongue is sharp. But I wanna be different for you. I don’t wanna run, I don’t wanna lose, I don’t wanna lose your love.” – lyrics

‘For You’ tells an interesting tale of a young woman who admits to her beau that she’s not an easy person to love. Apparently, she has bad habits such as running away whenever she gets too close to someone she loves, falls apart after being hurt, and needs attention all day long. Later, she realizes if she doesn’t eliminate her bad habits, she might lose her beau’s love forever.  

‘For You’ contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and lush instrumentation flavored with indie-pop and electronic elements.

“I have a huge fear of losing people close to me. And as a defense mechanism, I have had a bad habit of pushing people away before they have the chance to hurt me. The song is really about me recognizing that, and then promising to myself that I’m going to be different.” – Katile

Katile landed her first professional gig performing aboard Carnival Cruise Lines, singing every genre she could. Possessing a gambling spirit, she later hit land waiting tables at the Cutting Room in New York City. Since then, she has been performing, recording, and turning her vulnerability into strength.
