I am Katie Eltink ,a Holland (Valburg,Gelderland) born singer/songwriter who immigrated to Canada about 10 years ago.I celebrate my life on a farm in rural Ontario where I am surrounded with pure honesty,kindness and all the beauty that comes with Country Living.

I was an opening act for Canadian Country Star George Fox in Teeswater,Ontario. Had the pleasure to share the talents of 6- time CCMA guitar player of the year Wendell Ferguson and shared the stage with Glenn Affeldt while touring Ontario in the role of June Carter Cash in the Johnny Cash Tribute "Legend in Black". I went to Nashville with Mark Willms(Keyboard player for Jason McCoy,Diane Chase,John Landry and Barnard and Brohm)after winning the NEW COUNTRY STAR FAVORITE FEMALE Competition and performed my songs at places such as "Fuel,Blue Bar,The Commodore and the Broken Spoke". Currently I am writing new fresh Country arrangements with Mark for my second album. The song "My Heart Belongs To you" is the result of our songwriting together and came to life especially for the upcoming International Plowing Match 2008 in Teeswater,Ontario. I always write from the
