The evenly measured sweet and edgy singer-songwriter-guitarist Katie Garibaldi’s new release "Next Ride Out" is the artist’s sixth full-length album, and marks a new chapter in the creative indie music starling’s career. "Next Ride Out" features ten original soul-satisfying tracks, comprised of five brand new songs and five previously recorded songs that are smacked up with fresh arrangements and performances. The ten tracks mainly focus on relationships, love, and pain, as the songwriter is best known for, but the songs also carry a bit more humor, vulnerability, and self-discovery than her past work has shown. Maturity, both musically and emotionally, is evident, and the artist gives us more heart and guts than ever before. The sound is reminiscent of Americana with a twist of sparkling pop. Sweet and spicy, and full of heart. Michael Molenda, a noted producer, engineer, and editor-in-chief of Guitar Player magazine, produced the album at Tiki Town in Mill Valley, Ca. The studio has been home to many major label artists, as well as U.S. and European indie artists.
Katie Garibaldi has a characteristic musical style that is all her own—wherein her fusion of equally pop- and country-tinged folk-rock gives her a distinct and edgy sound. At just 25, Katie has already released six albums, constantly tours the country, and runs her own record label—Living Dream. Katie Garibaldi is not just another “chick with a guitar.” She is a business-minded individual and creative music artist who has acquired a devoted fan base, mainly due to her engaging live shows, but also in part to her personal connection to listeners and outreach to the community.
With the end of this CD’s making, the artist’s ride has just begun. The CD is a coming-of-age, expressive, emotional, and delightful story of a rising and talented leading light. With "Next Ride Out," Katie Garibaldi has arrived.
