Born and raised in Erie, Pennsylvania, Katie Feeney is no stranger to attention and the mic.
Her history with Brightstar Buzz goes all the way back to our first year on the air when we featured her as an artist on the show. She brings with her the knowledge, the attitude, spunk, wit and energy that drives the show. This ball of fire first joined BSB as a fill-in host in May 2018 and she officially became a host later in the fall.
She is also(as stated)a talented singer and songwriter herself as she fronts the party rocking funk band, You Do You and has a solo project under the name, "Roberta Faceplant". Katie is also a community activist involving herself in several outreach programs throughout the Delaware Valley and she was a director of development at the non profit organization, Rock to the Future which promotes music education and appreciation amongst the young for 6 years.
Katie Feeney holds a B.A. in Journalism from Penn State University and in addition to her hosting Brightstar Buzz, recording, and performing, she also hosts open mic night every 3rd Wednesday each month at Connie's Ric Rac in South Philadelphia. Katie is happily married to her You Do You guitarist and musical collaborator, Drew Parker and as an animal lover, she has a dog and cat.
