257: Katie Garibaldi Interview - The Americountry Artist

"I write what I write and try not to worry about putting it in sort of box" Katie Garibaldi

Katie Garibaldi - Singer/Songwriter 

With her seventh full-length album, Follow Your Heart, released, and an endorsement deal with Breedlove Stringed Instruments, who worked with her to build her a new custom Master Class guitar, Katie Garibaldi has proven to be an artist with staying power. Based in the golden city of San Francisco, this determined and enthusiastic singer/songwriter/guitarist is an avid national touring performer who has acquired a devoted fan base, due in large part to her engaging live shows, and personal connection to her listeners through her music. She sings with an emotional nearness that, in combination with her melodic and catchy songs and her soulful and expressive vocals, captures her audience wherever she performs. 

Katie has a characteristic musical style wherein her country-tinged folk-rock gives her a distinct and edgy sound—Americana with sparkling memorable melodies, or what her fans have referred to as "Americountry." Her latest album, Follow Your Heart, was recorded at John Vanderslice’s Tiny Telephone Recording Studios in San Francisco, CA, and engineered by Ian Pellicci, and features some of the prolific writer's most personal songs, most of which reflect back to her simple yet powerful message of the importance of having the conviction to follow one’s heart, and also includes performances by notable musicians, including the Magik*Magik Orchestra. 

Follow Your Heart is Katie’s first full-length release of all new compositions since her award winning Next Ride Out album in 2009. In that time, the Americana songstress has toured the country, and built her business DIY-style from the ground up. Guitar Player magazine calls Garibaldi “a gifted songwriter with a gorgeous voice” and Music Connection magazine says, “Garibaldi is blessed with a sweet and pure soprano, and we hear a sincerity in this artist that is real.” She has been named a Music Connection magazine Top 100 Live Unsigned Artist, received the Songwriter of the Year award from Songsalive!, is an active voting member of the Recording Academy, and was named Emerging Artist Of The Year for 2015 from the Indie Music Channel. 

Katie was also voted San Francisco Artist Of The Month by The Deli Magazine in September 2015. Recently, the indie artist released her first music video, "Lock The Door, Lose The Key," a fun story depicting the adventure of a newlywed couple. The music video premiered in September 2015 on The Deli Magazine as a one-year celebration to 2014's Follow Your Heart. Her upcoming new EP, a return to her folk-driven roots, which she recorded in a Nashville studio that's seen the likes of country greats like Brad Paisley, Tim McGraw, and George Jones, and features a mixture of classical and country string players is aimed for release in Spring of 2016.
