In 2007, I discovered that Nashville is full of phenomenally talented, independent artists. I lived there for the year and was humbled, honored, and pleased to get to know a bunch of them. Katie Herzig was one of the first.
Katie is probably my favorite emerging singer/songwriter on the scene right now. Her songs are just what my ears want to hear. Her third solo effort (after four releases fronting Colorado band Newcomers Home) came out in 2008. Apple Tree is full of thoughtful introspection shrouded in playful sonic beauty and that’s a pretty great summation for the artist herself.
