A resident of Lees Summit, Missouri, Nelson has seen first-hand the sorrow and disappointment from women who are physically unable to bear children or those who suffer losses along the way. And she's witnessed the emotional roller coaster that teen mothers face when giving up a child for adoption. All these experiences propelled her to write What's Mine is Yours.
She said of the songwriting experience: "The song felt like a tremendous gift and blessing. From the moment the title came to mind, my hands hit the piano keys and melody started flowing. This song was written for every woman who has the heart of a mother, both old and young, and especially to those who yearn for a family of their own."
Raised in Southern California, Nelson began singing at age three. Now as a recognized award-winning musical artist, songwriter, and actress, Katherine lives with her husband and four children in Missouri. Her early inspiration came from Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers,The Hollies, Crosby Stills and Nash, Tracey Chapman, Natalie Merchant, and Kate Bush. She believes in discovering uncharted territory as well as staying true to The Core of where she came from. Inspired by rich vocals from Dala, Civil Wars, Allison Krauss, and The Band Perry, she has once again been stretched to new Horizons with her new CD Born Brave. It's no surprise to Katherine that her Journey has lead her to Nashville, where she wrote and recorded songs in the same studios as music Legends Johnny Cash and Frank Sinatra.
