Katie Herzig:

In 2006, after several years of fronting the critically acclaimed Colorado-based band, Newcomers Home, Katie Herzig moved to Nashville to strike it solo. Before leaving Colorado, she single-handedly recorded and produced Weightless, a tour-de-force of innovative sonics and songwriting. Since then, Katie’s song “Heaven’s My Home” received a 2007 Grammy nomination and she has steadily become a fixture in Nashville’s up-and-coming indie music scene. Her songs have been featured on NPR, KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, Frito Lay and Honda commercials and many television shows including several episodes of television’s highest rated drama, Grey’s Anatomy. Katie has toured with the Ten Out Of Tenn tour, Hotel Café Tour, PASTE Magazine songwriter tour and has supported national acts such as The Fray, Brandi Carlile, Shawn Colvin, Aqualung and others. In 2008, Katie was featured in Billboard Magazine’s “Now Hear This” as well as one of PASTE Magazine’s 25 “Best of What’s Next” artists. She continues to out-do herself with each new musical endeavor.

Her last studio record Apple Tree, birthed songs like “Wish You Well,” “Hologram,” “I Hurt Too” and “Forevermore” that have become musical staples in the hearts of Herzig’s fans. Her latest release, Live in Studio: Acoustic Trio is a spellbinding, uniquely immersive listening experience that manages to perfectly capture her live performances with bandmates Claire Indie (cello) and Jordan Hamlin (guitar, ukelele, accordion). This music is at once playful and impassioned—challenging and comfortable—-intimate and epic… which is exactly what listeners have come to expect of Katie Herzig.

Ben Taylor:

Taylor is currently working on his new album set to be released in the Fall of 2010 and is releasing new songs every week through his website He will be sharing some cover songs as well as alternate versions of his original songs leading up to the new album release. His third full-length album, _T__he Legend of Kung Folk, Part 1 (The Killing Bite)_, was released in 2008 to rave reviews. FOX News called the album an “impressive and disarming work.” Taylor put the “kick” back into folk music to reveal the humor, wit and skill of a singer-songwriter who’s comfortable in both his own skin and with his impressive musical legacy.

The son of James Taylor and Carly Simon, Taylor’s life was always centered on music, although he spent several years traveling the world, developing a deep appreciation for the earth and the outdoors. Taylor’s acclaimed previous releases include his debut album, Famous Among the Barns, and Another Run Around The Sun, which was hailed on BBC Radio 2 as “LP of the Week.” He also made his acting debut with a recurring role on NBC’s American Dreams as Cal, a struggling singer/songwriter. Taylor has been featured in countless magazines including People Magazine, Vogue and has even appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone. He has toured extensive for years with artists such as Blues Traveler, Sheryl Crow, Ziggy Marley and Dar Williams.
