A Captivating Exploration into Vulnerability and Musical Brilliance

In Breathing, Katie MAC once again exudes her lively Midwestern girl-next-door charm. Her vulnerability, which has emerged as her superpower, thrust her into TikTok stardom in 2021. The viral success of her song Not My Ex expanded her audience, with over a million streams on Spotify alone, and its popularity continues to soar.

Katie reveals: “’Breathing’ is a song I wrote about missing someone and trying desperately to forget about them. I think everyone has that one person that lives in their mind no matter what, and this song was a play on the idea that I really only think about them…all the time. Production wise, I think this song allowed me to showcase my vocals in a way I haven’t done yet and it feels very representative of the releases to come“.

Beyond crafting her own songs, Katie lends her writing talents to other artists (such as John Harvie, Brooke Alexx, Caroline Kole, and more) in both Nashville and LA. Outside of music, Katie is an enthusiast of fashion, makeup (collaborating with Wet N Wild), fitness, and all things “girly.”

Breathing was conceived in Nashville alongside Katie’s friends Kipper and Winter. Initially sparked by the hook “I only think about you when I’m breathing,” the song was left incomplete when Katie returned to LA. She then took the reins and worked on the verses independently.

Consequently, Breathing is produced by Kipper Gray and co-written by Katie herself, Winter Wilson, and Kipper Gray. With Katie’s dynamic vocals at its core, Breathing emerges as a fierce, heart-wrenching pop ballad, blending mesmerizing guitar riffs, captivating samples, pulsating synths, and melodic strings. It takes listeners on a sonic journey, leaving them yearning for more.
