Katie Herzig Biography
In 2006, after several years of fronting the critically acclaimed Colorado-based band, Newcomers Home, Katie Herzig moved to Nashville to strike it solo. Before leaving Colorado, she single-handedly recorded and produced Weightless, a tour-de-force of innovative sonics and songwriting. Since then, Katie’s song “Heaven’s My Home” received a 2007 Grammy nomination and she has steadily become a fixture in Nashville’s up-and-coming indie music scene. Her songs have been featured on NPR, KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, Frito Lay and Honda commercials and many television shows including several episodes of television’s highest rated drama, Grey’s Anatomy. Katie has toured with the Ten Out Of Tenn tour, Hotel Café Tour, PASTE Magazine songwriter tour and has supported national acts such as The Fray, Brandi Carlile, Shawn Colvin, Aqualung and others. In 2008, Katie was featured in Billboard Magazine’s “Now Hear This” as well as one of PASTE Magazine’s 25 “Best of What’s Next” artists. She continues to out-do herself with each new musical endeavor.
Her last studio record Apple Tree, birthed songs like "Wish You Well," "Hologram," "I Hurt Too" and "Forevermore" that have become musical staples in the hearts of Herzig's fans. Her latest release, Live in Studio: Acoustic Trio is a spellbinding, uniquely immersive listening experience that manages to perfectly capture her live performances with bandmates Claire Indie (cello) and Jordan Hamlin (guitar, ukelele, accordion). This music is at once playful and impassioned--challenging and comfortable---intimate and epic… which is exactly what listeners have come to expect of Katie Herzig.
