With the release of her seventh full-length album and a brand new endorsement deal with Two Old Hippies, who worked with Breedlove Guitars to build her a new custom-made guitar, Katie Garibaldi has proven herself to be an artist with undeniable talent and lasting appeal. Based in the golden city of San Francisco, this determined and enthusiastic singer/songwriter/guitarist is an avid national touring performer who has amassed a devoted fan base, due in large part to her engaging live shows and a personal connection to her listeners through her music. Katie sings with an emotional resonance that, combined with her catchy melodic songs and her soulfully expressive vocals, captures her audience wherever she performs. While she’s been compared to household names such as Sheryl Crow, Jewel, and Taylor Swift, Katie has a charismatic musical style all her own wherein her equally pop- and country-tinged folk-rock gives her a distinct and edgy sound—Americana with sparkling and memorable melodies. - READ FOR MORE DETAILS

The fifth studio album, Futures, debuted at number six on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and was well received by critics and fans across the world. After selling millions of records, with numerous top ten singles at Modern Rock radio, appearing on Saturday Night Live and touring with Foo Fighters, Green Day and Weezer; they celebrate three reissues for release and offer fans a high quality treatment to their catalog.

ALLISON WEISS DEBUT’S NEW SONG, “TAKE YOU BACK,” AT PASTEMAGAZINE.COM
Indie-rock singer-songwriter Allison Weiss has debuted a new song called “Take You Back” today with PasteMagazine.com. The track is featured on her upcoming, highly anticipated EP, Remember When, which is due out on July 22nd from No Sleep Records. The record is available for pre-order now on limited edition 12” vinyl at https://nosleeprecords.com/product/7228. Stream “Take You Back” now, exclusively at PasteMagazine.com: http://bit.ly/TRCGW2
“This is one of my favorites off Remember When,” says Weiss. “I've been dying to strip a song down and do it low-fi, and figured this would be the perfect moment to do it. The song is about the kind of toxic relationship that you keep going back to, even when you know it's a bad idea. The ending is the best part.” “Take You Back” is one of five astounding new tracks that blur the line between pop, rock and folk on her upcoming EP Remember When, which also includes her infectious single “Giving Up,” “Remember When,” “The Fall” and a cover of Robyn’s hit song “Call Your Girlfriend.”
Weiss will be performing an album release show at El
Cid in Los Angeles on July 18th before joining the Vans Warped Tour on July
20th in Shakopee, MN. -
