Katie Jo Oberthaler

Track #6 - "Moonpie"

Katie Jo Oberthaler (August)

California, USA


Banjoista and songwriter Katie Jo Oberthaler fronts Katie Jo & The Mijos, a bluegrass-infused country band out of Long Beach, California. Oberthaler’s songs range from down-on-your-luck ballads to up-tempo bluegrass bangers. Her friendly, front porch vibe, tender lyrics and dedicated study of bluegrass creates an approachable sound fit for both a roadhouse hoedown and a slow dance kiss. In 2016, she started Katie Jo & The Mijos to blend bluegrass tradition with her love of classic country. She also plays regularly with the Andy Rau Band and as a session banjo picker for regional country artists.
