Katelyn Convery joins Mock Crest Tavern Saturday evening, July 12th at 9:00 p.m.

Katelyn was born in Portland, Oregon, and is a singer-songwriter who draws inspiration from the human experience and her travels across the world.

She purchased her first guitar at the age of 16, taught herself to play, and started writing simple songs. She continued writing songs in high school and during her first 2 years of college at the University of Oregon. However, real inspiration didn’t hit until she traveled to Europe in 2006 to attend a study abroad program in Oviedo, Spain.

“Leaving the country for the first time was like being reborn. It was like breaking free of my self-made cocoon and finally being able to see past the end of my nose. It began a period of processing my feelings and observations through song-writing. And it’s never really left me since.”

Katelyn now resides in Cape Town, South Africa, where she hopes to record a full-length album including her most recent songs in the next year.
