Katie Garibaldi Follows Her Heart To A New York Tour And Debut Show At Rockwood Music Hall!

If “heart follower” could be used to describe a career title, Katie Garibaldi would be called just that. Refusing to be labeled as a singer/songwriter in a one-trick box, Garibaldi’s musical genre teeter-totters between country and pop-esque elements, all the while keeping her modern folk roots with true to the gut lyrics, strong melodies, delicate and soul-filled birdsong vocals, and her driving steel string guitar’s finger-picking and syncopated rhythmic styles.

She picked up a guitar at age 11, unaware of how much it would awaken her deep-rooted purpose, wrote her first song that very day, and has been devoted to a life of music ever since. A DIY independent artist from the get-go, Katie Garibaldi has built her career from the ground up. Now, two decades later, with her seventh full-length album, Follow Your Heart, newly released, an endorsement deal with Breedlove Stringed Instruments, who worked with her to build her a custom Master Class guitar, several songwriting awards on her mantel, and recent rave reviews from Guitar Player magazine, who called her “a gifted songwriter with a gorgeous voice,” this Americana songstress 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 katiegaribaldi_photo_gal__photo_392328942_lrconnection 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. Her new album, Follow Your Heart, which was recorded at John Vanderslice’s Tiny Telephone Recording Studios in San Francisco, CA, and engineered by Ian Pellicci, features some of the writer’s most personal songs, includes performances by notable musicians, including multi-instrumentalist Max Butler and the Magik*Magik Orchestra, and spreads her message loud and clear of the importance of listening to the voice inside one’s heart.

A regular name along the California and West Coast, as well as frequent visits to musically ablaze cities like Austin, TX and Nashville, TN, Katie Garibaldi is following her heart’s compass this summer to the East Coast for her first ever New York tour, including a debut performance at the highly esteemed venue Rockwood Music Hall on June 29, 2015.

Katie Garibaldi at Indie Music Channel Awards 2015

Katie Garibaldi at Indie Music Channel Awards 2015

Living Dream Music is excited to announce Katie Garibaldi has received the Emerging Artist of the Year award at the Indie Music Channel 2015 Awards! Garibaldi’s “Follow Your Heart,” the acclaimed title track off her new album, was also nominated for Best Country Song. This is the artist’s first time being nominated and winning an IMC award. Garibaldi was presented with the honor by Christopher Ewing, creator of IMC, during the ‘Best of the Year’ segment at the IMC Awards Ceremony last Sunday, April 26, 2015 at the world famous Whisky a Go Go in Hollywood, CA, where she also performed her song “Follow Your Heart” live. She dedicated the song to “all the indie artists who are following their hearts.” The awards show celebrated some of the biggest names in independent music from around the world.

“I poured my heart and soul into my new album, Follow Your Heart, and it’s really amazing to be recognized for my music,” Garibaldi reflected in her acceptance speech on the night of the awards show. She has also published on her social media, “This past year has been an amazing journey with Follow Your Heart and I couldn’t be happier with the path it’s taken me on. Thanks to everyone who has believed in me and my heart’s mission! I am floored with gratitude.”

The Indie Music Channel was created by Emmy Award winning TV host, actor and model, Christopher Ewing. “I created the Indie Music Channel and ‘The Radio Cafe’ radio show because I have always felt that there needed to be more support for local, indie artists and their music. There are a lot of really talented singers and bands whose music isn’t getting enough radio play, if at all, mostly because they aren’t signed to a major label. Whether these singers or bands have a record deal or not, they still have awesome music that deserves to be heard on the radio and on television and now, through the Indie Music Channel, there is an outlet for them to get their music played.” (www.theindiemusicchannel.com).

With her seventh full-length album, Follow Your Heart, recently 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—with regular appearances in Nashville, TN— 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. The indie starling 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. Katie Garibaldi is an active voting member of the Recording Academy, has been named a Music Connection magazine Top 100 Live Unsigned Artist, received the Songwriter of the Year award from Songsalive!, performed in Austin, TX for this year’s SXSW, and was recently featured in Guitar Player magazine, which called her “a gifted songwriter with a gorgeous voice.” For more information and tour dates, visit Katie at
