Katie McAuley Music Video Release - Can't Phase Me

 A CINEMILLS produced music video, Katie McAuley's, 'Can't Phase Me'. Shot at CINEMILLS MEDIA CENTER.

Katie grew up with her parents and two older sisters in sunny southern California. The first ten years of her life were spent living in the house of Al Capone in the city of Fontana, California. Most of her time spent at home was filled with creating variety shows with her sisters and friends to perform for the parents, aunts and uncles. She loved performing at a young age and she was good at it. 


Katie was 10 when her mother really took a closer notice to her vocal abilities. Her mother, Susan, says, "When Katie was a young girl, she would sing Mary Had A Little Lamb around our house, but, not like any other kid would. She would add her own riffs to it. That's when I knew." One day, Katie came home to tell her mother she wanted to join the city cheerleading team. Her mother knew then, its time to start singing lessons instead. She was a little hesitant, but quickly became very passionate about singing and has continued pursuing it ever since.


Her first love was country music and horses. At the age of 11, she recorded her first cover song, Blue by Leann Rimes. Leann Rimes was her biggest musical influence, along with Shania Twain, Mariah Carey, JoDee Messina, Faith Hill, and Martina McBride. But since then she had fallen in love with pop music because of her love of dancing and performing. Throughout her teens she joined a co-ed pop group that traveled locally for shows, participated in many singing competitions throughout southern California, and religiously went to karaoke every week with her mother for years! "She was very shy, was hard to get her to Emote" her mother says. 


After Katie graduated high school, she decided that cosmetology would be her next chapter. She enrolled into Paul Mitchell the School and was a working licensed cosmetologist by the age of 20. She had missed singing dearly, especially karaoke nights. She then linked up with her favorite karaoke host from her childhood and started to host karaoke in bars and restaurants 5 night a week as a second job just so she could get her fix. Singing and hosting her own karaoke shows started to passionately inspired Katie to start pursuing her singing career once again. 

After 3 years of hosting karaoke and networking in Riverside, Ca, she met her boyfriend Matthew De Mattos. He quickly let her know she needed to be in Los Angeles to maximize her potential. She then quit her jobs to begin working in a night club and bar tending private parties so she could have the autonomy and financials to survive the "artist grind" in Los angeles. Shortly after moving to the big city, she started networking. Finding background singing gigs for other artists and song writing for feature films. 

Currently she is working on her Solo project. Stay tuned for her EP. Dropping soon!

A Cowgirl's Story on Netflix

This week, Netflix released the feature film 'A Cowgirl's Story,' a CINEMILLS produced film.


Seventeen-year-old Dusty Rhodes (Bailee Madison) goes to live with her grandfather (Pat Boone) because both of her Army parents are fighting in the Afghanistan war. Dusty attends a new high school where she makes friends with a group that includes Savanah (Chloe Lukasiak), a girl whose father also served in the Army. Dusty convinces her new friends into forming an equestrian drill team that allows them to perform at rodeos and parades. Dusty's world is turned upside down by the war when her mother's helicopter is shot down in action and she goes missing. To cope with her fear and helplessness, Dusty enlists the help of her grandfather and friends to put on a special riding performance for her parents and all of the soldiers fighting overseas. The entire town turns out in support of the event, and it becomes an unforgettable experience for everyone.
