Katie Ketchum: Press

"Ketchum is a fetching performer....Ketchum sings well, has written some witty ditties in the gospel and rockabilly veins, and plays a mean Jerry Lee Lewis-style piano...Her story about meeting and falling in love with Joe, how he changed her life and how he visited her in dreams after his death is touching in and of itself."
Jim Carnes - Sacramento Bee (Apr 24, 2008)

San Francisco press

"To create an alternative world and then maintain it for an hour and twenty minutes takes talent and guts."
"her singing and effortless piano playing remained strong throughout."
Erin Podlipnik - WCities,San Francisco
"In her role as rockabilly singer Marlene, Ketchum delivers laughs and sharp commentary, all in support of giving Magdalene her rightful place in the pantheon of goddesses."
"Her keyboard artisty is exuberant and flashy. Her first song "Party" is reminiscent of the piano pyrotechnics of Jerry Lee Lewis."
"Mary Magdalene Story is intense in both it's onstage activity and it's intellectual content and it's thoroughly enjoyable on a visceral level."
Albert Goodwyn - San Francisco Bay Times
"She has a beautiful voice, and there are some charming moments."
Nathaniel Eaton - San Francisco Weekly
