Katy Crawford is a singer-songwriter who has led worship both at her church in the United States and within many French-speaking countries. Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, she grew up in church, ministering alongside her family. She strives to bring the songs the Lord has given her to people around the world.
Katy began vocal training with Andrea Wallace, of 288 Vocals and Septien Entertainment Group, at the age of 15. This discovery of her own voice, in combination with a broadened exploration of music, inspired her to expand her lifelong love of writing poetry into songwriting. This divinely inspired path led her into what she does today, leading worship at her church in Texas, as well as throughout Western Europe.
Her ministry within France and other French-speaking countries led her to the 2015 release of a French language worship EP, Pour Te louer. Having seen the deep need for God in today’s Europe, she felt the call to release the new songs God was giving her to a people in desperate need of His Spirit.
Gleaning inspiration from her love of many genres of music, including jazz, bluegrass, and pop, her first full-length album, Our Love Story, released in 2016, displays a personal journey with God, beginning with the realization of His goodness and love through times of difficulty and favor.
Katy’s music demonstrates the depth and passion of falling in love with the God who is love. The mission for her next English-language EP, Closer,released in 2017, is no less passionate and heart-felt than that of her previous work. Once again, this album expresses the earnest desire to be closer to God and to maintain complete focus on Him.
Her latest single, Grace That Saves the World, released in unplugged form during the holidays in 2018, then re-recorded with producer Billy Smiley in Nashville and released in December 2019, is a melodic and powerful song about accepting and partnering with God in His plan for this Earth, much in the way that Mary accepted the call to become the mother of Jesus.
She will be releasing a new Psalm Project EP, also recorded with Billy Smiley at Sound Kitchen and at Red Street Records, in the Spring and Summer of 2020, followed by a CCM/Pop single, Say, Summer 2020.
