Denver-based Folk-pop songstress Katey Laurel grew up drawing pictures, writing stories, riding horses and playing in the woods in the Colorado mountains. This is the idyllic foundation from which she crafts her life and her music. Katey’s songs range from radio-friendly pop tunes to lush, cinematic songs for film and television. With background in Classical piano and French horn as well as guitar and voice, her artistic roots are both deep and diverse. Laurel draws her musical inspiration as a songwriter from many musical styles including bluegrass, classic rock, alternative, country, and even 80s dance-pop.

Katey has performed hundreds of shows via venues, radio, television stations and festivals in Colorado and around the US, including Hotel Cafe (LA), The Bitter End (NYC), Bluebird Cafe (Nashville), Hard Rock Café Denver and Nashville, Colorado State Fair and the Greeley Stampede. She has built a solid fan base with her unique voice and a satisfying blend of folk and pop, garnering airplay on Triple A and AC radio stations around the country including KALC, KMNT, KBCO, KFMU and KOTO. Most recently she is a Great American Song Contest Top 5 Winner and NPR Mountain Stage NewSong Contest Regional Finalist, and has had two songs in rotation on Starbucks overhead programming.

As a live performer, she has shared the stage with Howie Day, Bill Mallonee, Katie Herzig, Matt Morris, Trevor Hall and others. With her latest album “Periscope” produced by industry veteran Warren Huart (The Fray, Aerosmith), Katey Laurel is now poised to reach an even larger audience in the days ahead. Here’s your chance to get three of her songs free!

What’s The Buzz ?


Hi friends!

It’s been a while so I thought I’d give you a quick catch up on what’s been going on in my world since I’ve been getting a lot of emails on Facebook asking me where I’ve been, lol.  Good question!

Firstly, I hope you all had a wonderful summer,…or winter, depending on what part of the world you live in.

My summer was great.  I went to London & Paris and made some awesome new friends and contacts.  I was also inspired to write a couple new songs which may just make it onto this next album I’m finishing up for an early 2012 release.  Happy to announce that David Peters is on board to mix and so far it’s sounding awesome!!

2 really cool song placements have happened-

‘Take A Walk With Me’ which I co-wrote with Scott Whyte is featured on the movie and trailer of a documentary film really close to my heart called “Baby Let Your Hair Hang Down”.  The film stars fellow Aussie Georgia Van Cuylenburg and it’s getting some exciting buzz in the film festival circuit.  Fingers crossed for continued success.  Please check out the trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXgBbzjjxl0

Another song I co-write with Scott Whyte has just been placed on the ending credits of the new Val Kilmer western “The First Ride Of Wyatt Earp”.  Yay!!   The feature is set to release around March of next year.  Scott is singing this one (for a nice change) and it has a really cool rural vibe to it.  I’ve posted it on my page for those of you who want a preview- it’s called ‘Goodbye Yesterday’.

For those of you who’ve been asking about upcoming shows you’ll be happy to know that I’ll be playing at the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood next month.  Downbeat happens on October 13th so save the date and stay tuned for details closer to the time.  I do believe it’s a free show and all ages event so that’s a  nice plus for all of my not yet 21 friends 🙂

Be sure to grab some never ending pasta at Olive Garden if you haven’t already.  I hear they’re playing the crap out of that commercial right now but since I’m in it I won’t complain 😉

Keep writing me and leaving comments on my youtube and Facebook.  Always love to hear from you and appreciate your support!!
