Katie Garibaldi from California San Francisco

Artist History

With her seventh full-length album release imminent, and a brand new endorsement deal with Two Old Hippies, who worked with Breedlove Guitars to build her a new custom guitar, Katie Garibaldi has proven to be an artist with staying power. Based in the golden city 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. While she’s been compared to household names such as Sheryl Crow, Jewel, and Taylor Swift, Katie has a characteristic musical style wherein her equally pop- and country-tinged folk-rock gives her a distinct and edgy sound—Americana with sparkling memorable melodies.

Her new album, Follow Your Heart, was recorded at John Vanderslice’s Tiny Telephone Recording Studios in San Francisco, CA, and engineered by Ian Pellicci. The foundation of the band consists of Katie Garibaldi on vocals and acoustic guitar (as well as being the songwriter and producer), Memphis-based Kevin Blair on electric and upright acoustic bass, and Bay Area local Todd Richardson on drums and percussion. Magik*Magik Orchestra also makes an appearance on this recording, which features Michelle Kwon (The Delphi Trio) on cello and Philip Brezina (Brothers Comatose) on violin. Katie had the opportunity to co-write/arrange the string parts with Magik*Magik artistic director, Minna Choi. More notable players include Max Butler [pedal steel, mandolin, ukulele], Sylvain Carton [flute, clarinets, saxophones], Henry Hung [trumpet, trombone], Matt Blackett [electric guitar], and Shawn Shaffer [harmonica]. Follow Your Heart consists of 13 new tracks, which include her most personal recorded songs to date, and all seem to reflect back to her simple yet powerful message of the importance of having the conviction to follow your heart.

Stay tuned for the release of Katie Garibaldi’s new album Follow Your Heart, to be released in July of 2014. Summer and Fall tour dates will also be announced on www.katiegaribaldi.com.

"Next Ride Out" Reviewed by RadioIndy.com!

Katie Garibaldi’s latest CD, “Next Ride Out,” is a folk-pop tour de force to rival those of similar singer-songwriters whose brands are veritable household names. Like Sheryl Crow, Jewel, Fiona Apple or Ani DiFranco, Garibaldi is a soulful singer-songwriter of real – if largely unheralded, merits. Her writing is smart & nuanced, her sense of melody is hook-laden & immediate, & her singing is as polished & effective as it is affecting. On this, her 4th album, vibrant country-ish songs like “Hey, Hey Darlin’” & “Nothing Good Lasts,” complement straight-up pop-rock tunes (like CD-opener, “Say the Word,” or the Billy Joel-like strains of “Went Too Far (Foot in My Mouth)”) with equal skill. She displays a bit of Crow-inspired grittiness with the funky “A Love Without Chains,” while the wonderful ballad, “I Owe You Nothing,” masterfully pits a delicate & beautiful melody against a lyric of willful – but not shrill, defiance. With keen production & a faultless & potent band behind her, Katie Garibaldi’s “Next Ride Out” CD is one to hop aboard for – no matter the destination. Indeed, Garibaldi proves the ride alone is worth the price of the fare.
