Katie Burke / Bio

B.C. "Boog" Harmine is a young soul artist from MA. Born (Kaitlin C. Burke) to William and Kathleen Burke, she was the third child of three. Always singing and performing Boog quickly took to music and acting early and began to sing at school and in church. Her undeniable soul, musical drive, and exceptional ability to understand the ebb and flow of electricity within a performance and an audience has made her a quick favorite in every musical or theatrical situation or performance that she'd find herself. Her first song "One Way Bus Ride" and her second "Cherry Tree" she wrote at 14 years old, both dealt with mature themes and experiences that clearly show Harmine's natural understanding for the human condition beyond her years. "Cherry Tree" dealing with rape, ownership of one's self, and the feeling of loss and loneliness that comes with a traumatic experience. From there at 14, for almost 8 years B.C. didn't write music beyond any other reason than simply a pastime. After high school Harmine attended Stony Brook University where she studied Theatre and graduated with a B.A. At 22 after leaving graduate school at NYU before completing her MFA in Acting, Harmine by chance was asked by a street musician if she played, she picked up his guitar and has been playing and writing music full throttle. B.C. would sing any chance she got in Washington Square Park and found she had a voice that could bring down the house and bring in the crowds. From there, she met more musicians that would color her style and love for music, performance, and humanity forever. The relationship of listening with an audience, the conversation between performer and audience is paramount for this young singer songwriter. In a park, on a stage, in a subway, Harmine has a unique view of the world, her connection to it, and believes the answer to where music should sit with the masses is close to their ears, and even closer to their hearts.
