The Salt Lake Tribune wrote an article on Katie in February. She offered her song “Sleep Through It” has a free download during the entire month in celebration of Utah’s Dating Violence Awareness Month. The song, a marked departure from the usually sunny, piano-driven pop songs McMinn writes, has earned her more fans because of its range. “She writes very catchy songs,” said Herriman resident Jana Edgington, who along with her 8-year-old daughter, Sammie, counts herself as a McMinn fan. But “Sleep Through It,” Edgington said, speaks to McMinn’s work experience and exposes behavior that is usually neglected or endured. “I used to be a writer of things had that happened to me,” she said. Now by telling other people’s stories, she hopes to makes a difference.
