Download “Summer” by Katie Herzig, playing Boot & Saddle Saturday evening
Singer-songwriter Katie Herzig recently released Walk Through Walls, an excellent collection of songs from the Nashville based musician. Katie works in the same tangential musical universe as Brandi Carlile, Ingrid Michaelson and Sara Bareilles, however she adds her own distinctive voice and vision to the conversation. Her songs have appeared on various television shows including Grey’s Anatomy, Bones, One Tree Hill, and on commercials for Target, Dove, Kate Spade, and others. “We Belong,” a song from RAC’s Don’t Talk To EP, was given an amazing remix treatment by the high profile music remix collective.
Walk Through Walls eschews traditional singer-songwriter-with-guitar convention, and on the album she experiments with electronica sounds (synths and loops, layered vocals) and quirky, yet accessible song arrangements that bring her closer to Kate Bush or Imogene Heap than Brandi or Sara. The songwriting is complex, the sounds dreamy, yet Herzig still knows how to master a melody. Katie performs at Boot & Saddle tomorrow evening, Saturday, May 2nd, with Elizabeth & The Catapult opening. Go here for tickets and more information. Below, download “Summer.”
