Album Notes
"Fast-rising on the coffee-house/dive bar circuit, this queer indie folkie from Brooklyn impresses with a solid blend of bluegrass, acoustic rock and pop..." Curve Magazine. Feb. 2005

Evolved from years of coffeehouses and dive bars, Katie Sawicki plays a style of contemporary folk unique to the growing field of singer songwriters. Handed down by the influences of Lucinda Williams, Ryan Adams, Gillian Welch and the most prolific of the underground independent folk scene, Sawicki plays a music committed to relaying the experiences of people. "This is one of the most captivating songwriters I have heard in a long time," says Dennis Halsey of Best Female Musicians.

Dedicated to tradition of live music, Sawicki has as good a time performing as those she entertains. Touring up and down the east coast and out to the Midwest, she has shared the stage with Melissa Ferrick, Pamela Means, Kris Delmhorst and others along the way. "Katie's thoughtful songwriting, powerful guitar-playing and natural easy presence onstage wins over even the toughest crowds," says singer songwriter Edie Carey.

After puttering around EPs for years, in 2002, 'Scrapbook' was released-a live recording from the best of Sawicki's first shows in Ithaca, NY. But after some touring, a move to Brooklyn NY, and newfound ardor for independent music, Sawicki released 'Black Boots', her first studio album, in April 2004. 'Black Boots' is a compilation of a new genre-bending indie-a singer songwriter's modern folk interpretation of blue-grass, rock and sing along. Nominated for a 2005 Best Debut Female Recording from Outmusic, 'Black Boots' provides the growing space for a new kind of folk.

Keep an eye on this woman - she's very good!
Katie Sawicki is the real thing. Real and refreshing. Reminds me of a young Dar Williams.

Buy this CD, or... totally miss out.
If you enjoy music to drift to, to daydream to, to sing along with.. to hum in your heart. You will LOVE this CD. Phenomenal lyrics, and catchy tunes. Be aware, they will stick with you far after the CD's over. You'll find yourself humming and thinking of the melodies.. entering the stories, and just feeling lightened by her voice. The CD captures the sweetness that is Katie's voice, and the softness that is her songwriting. The CD makes me feel as though I am being comforted by someone I don't know... and my CD player stays on repeat.

BUY it. It's worth it.. and more.
