With her 7th full-length album, Follow Your Heart, newly released, and an endorsement deal with Breedlove Stringed Instruments, who worked with her to build her a 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. Katie has a characteristic musical style wherein her equally pop- and country-tinged folk-rock gives her a distinct and soulful sound—Americana with sparkling memorable melodies. Her new album, Follow Your Heart, features some of the writer's most personal songs, and includes performances by notable musicians, including the Magik*Magik Orchestra. Katie Garibaldi has been named a Music Connection magazine Top 100 Live Unsigned Artist, received the Songwriter of the Year award from Songsalive!, is a voting member of the Recording Academy, and just won Emerging Artist Of The Year at the Indie Music Channel 2015 Awards in Hollywood. She was also recently featured in Guitar Player magazine, which called her “a gifted songwriter with a gorgeous voice.” For more information and tour dates, visit www.katiegaribaldi.com [+]
