"Beautifully and thoughtfully crafted songs"—Performing Songwriter
Featured on the bill of the 2009 Ann Arbor Folk Festival, Colorado-to-Nashville transplant Katie Herzig fronted a band called Newcomers Home for eight years and then broke out with her solo release "Weightless," which was heard on the TV series "Grey's Anatomy." Her song "Heaven's My Home" got the Dukhs a Grammy nomination, and since then Katie has written for numerous other television shows and films, including the "Sex and the City" movie. Her latest, "The Waking Sleep," features songs written over the course of a year as she toured as an opener for Brandi Carlile, for whom her own country-tinged music is a good match. "On some songs, I don't even know what I'm writing about," Katie says. "But it feels like exactly what I need to say."
