Katja Glieson was born Katja-Angelique Glieson in Melbourne, Australia. According to Beat 100, The Australian-born singer made a "difficult decision to move away from family and friends to pursue a career in music; she worked three jobs and saved every penny to make the move to Los Angeles in order to live out her dreams". Glieson talked about struggling with shyness and bullying growing up, made worse by being an overweight kid (at one point, she was at 200 pounds). Suffering more than her fair share of ridicule and bullying in elementary school she turned to music. Singing gave her a positive outlet. "I used to sing to myself to kind of feel better and fill the void of having friends. It made me feel better," Glieson said.
Glieson performed on the mainstages at LA PRIDE, OC PRIDE and CAPITAL PRIDE in 2014. After appearing in the Princess Rap Battle, Glieson also released her original song "Look At Us" on YouTube, featuring Ongina from RuPaul's Drag Race and YouTuber Zedakiah. Lyrically, "Look At Us" embodies female empowerment and celebrates the idea of staying true to who you are. Glieson also uploads covers to YouTube, such as "Black Widow".
