ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sawicki’s new album ‘For the Quiet’, released March 2006, explores the many forms of contemporary and traditional folk in a new set of sophisticated indie songs. “For the Quiet” is comforting, mobilizing and a great driving companion.

-----------------
BIO

Evolved from years of playing coffeehouses and dive bars, Katie Sawicki’s version of indie folk is about lyrics, harmony, and songwriting that sticks with you. Handed down by the influences of Lucinda Williams, Ryan Adams, Gillian Welch and the most prolific of the underground independent folk scene. “This is one of the most captivating songwriters I have heard in a long time,” says Dennis Halsey of Best Female Musicians. "Katie's thoughtful songwriting, powerful guitar-playing and natural easy presence onstage wins over even the toughest crowds," says singer songwriter Edie Carey. Sharing the stage with Melissa Ferrick, Edie Carey, Garnet Rogers, Pamela Means and others of a similar folk
genre, Sawicki has only recently entered the full time music world.

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' creates the growing space for a new kind of indie folk.

for the quiet makes my ears tingle.
I anticipated the release of this record for a great while and cant stop listening to the warm melodies and toe tappin rhythms. Katie Sawicki lets her light shine on this record illuminously.

Travis Lund

Whoa!!!!!!
Records like this come along only in rare bursts of pure transcendence from those who are apparently talented to the point of being near superhuman. From the opening cut through the fading of the final notes, this one's flawless. Sawicki crafts melodies that could break your heart or make you dance just hearing them played on a piano. That's before you get knocked over by lyrics that manage to be poetic, playful, eloquent, and heartwarming all at once. Oh yeah, and they're sung by a voice that wraps you up like a favorite sweater; soaring, mellow, and gorgeous. Then you realize there's some really stellar guitar playing going on here (she's one of the few folkers around who writes really killer guitar hooks, man this girl can pick it!!!) The whole record flows really nicely as well, and leaves you with a sigh in your throat, a fuzzy feeling in your gut, snatches of tunes blowing through your mind, and the unstoppable urge to spin it again . . . and again . . . and again . . . and, well, you get the idea.

Matthew Requa

Another lilting, well-crafted and intimate set of poetic singer-songwriter gems.
Katie Sawicki delivers another well-crafted and personal set of songs. Much like on her equally stellar Black Boots, the mood of the disc is intimate and inviting. The songs don't bombard you instantly with hook heavy choruses, but instead lilt in and out of your brain, like passages of poetry drifting across the canvas of a very gifted singer-songwriter. Her lyrics are both honest and metaphorically vivid, holding just enough mystery that thankfully requires many repeat listens. Truly, it's music you will never grow tired of.

ps- If you ever get the chance to see Katie live, do not pass it up.

Sarah O'Neil

Sawicki achieves greatness.
For the Quiet is Katie's best album yet. Its music is rich with poignant lyrics and beautiful melodies. Katie's voice is filled with love and promise, as each song rings more and more true and brings the listener closer and closer to a place called home. Extraordinary.

Freakin' awesome!
The CD was brilliant, and I play it often -- both at work and in my house. It's a fabulous mix of upbeat, fun tracks and heartachingly sad tracks...a great combination. Run, don't walk, to buy this CD!!

Gemma Scott

Truly inspiring and brilliant Album!
After hearing her previous CDs I was anxiously awaiting a new CD and 'for the quiet' did not disappoint. From the opening track '300 miles' to the beautifully written title track at the end I defy anyone not to just fall in love with this album and not leave it on constant repeat. Musically and Lyrically breathtaking. Pure brilliance.
