Katie Herzig
Katie Herzig
After the critical and commercial success of her 2011 album, The Waking Sleep, and its subsequent packed-out tours, Katie Herzig will finally release her new record, Walk Through Walls, this Spring. A celebratory, love-struck album of sublime dream pop. Herzig has spent years playing festivals such as Bonnaroo and Summerfest and touring as a headliner and as support for Brandi Carlile, Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, The Fray, and as a member of 10 out of Tenn. She has had her music licensed for innumerable film, TV and commercial uses. Including over 10 songs on Grey’s Anatomy and most recently her song “Lost and Found” was featured in the trailer for Disney's Saving Mr. Banks and in a commercial for Carnival Cruises. Herzig can be heard on RAC's new EP with their song collaboration "We Belong," currently featured on KCRW. Herzig has also co-produced songs on Ingrid Michaelson's forthcoming 2014 album, as well as writing and co-producing a single last year for Ruby Amanfu called "Bluff." To put Herzig in any sort of box is for it to be broken as she continues to outdo herself with each new release. Her live show is a dynamic full-band set that is as intimate as it is epic, what listeners have come to expect of Herzig, who will tour Walk Through Walls this spring with her band throughout the US.
Elizabeth & The Catapult
As a band Elizabeth and the Catapult has released two full length albums under Verve Records and one self titled EP, which the band produced and released on their own. Their first LP, Taller Children (2009), was recorded with producer Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes), which featured "Tilly and the Wall" and was bolstered by Commercials for Google, Amazon and Sky TV. Their second full length, The Other Side of Zero (2010) was produced by Tony Berg (Aimee Mann, Jesca Hoop) and featured Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings on the title track. This album drew interest from actress Anne Hathaway, who used the song "Thank You For Nothing" to inspire her for her main scene (hair cutting) in Les Miserables. Hathaway later cast Elizabeth as a street musician in an upcoming film about New York Musicians. Over the last three years, Elizabeth has toured with Sara Bareilles, Greg Laswell, Lenka, and Kishi Bashi. In the last year, she played drums in Kishi Bashi's band, and sang backgrounds for The Waterboys and The Shins. She's recently finished a new EP with her songwriting muse Mr. Richard Swift and is set to release a full length she made with Dan Molad (Lucius, Here We Go Magic) in January.
