Katie Sachs is a songwriter, powerhouse vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist who sings from the guts and delivers a raw, urgently emotional musical experience to listeners. Through eccentric lyrics and catchy melodies, Katie reveals an inner world that is brutally honest, deeply vulnerable, and highly relatable. Her appreciation of wide-ranging musical styles comes through in her work, and makes it hard to put a label on her. If influences were ingredients, they would include: a sauce of Billie Holiday, dash of David Byrne, pinch of Pixies, and a hint of Feist. An Asheville, NC-based artist who has lived all over the country, Katie released her 4th studio album ‘The Factory of Almosts’ on September 10th.
‘The Factory of Almosts’ is an adventurous, multi-genre masterpiece that explores the complexities of romantic relationships and simultaneous discovery of self. The new album features performances by top musicians from her old stomping grounds of Austin,TX and Boston, MA, as well as members of Asheville’s premier Indie Rock trio The Get Right Band.
With a degree in creative writing, extensive national touring, and over 20 years of songwriting behind her, Katie is a seasoned performer who knows how to connect with her audience and make them cry, laugh, ponder, or fall silent. She has performed at iconic venues such as: Club Passim in Boston, MA, Hole in the Wall, Strangebrew and the Driskill Hotel in Austin, TX and the Threadgill stage at Kerrville Folk Festival. Co-bills include the likes of Heather Maloney, Ley Line, Peter Tork (Of the Monkees) and trading songs around campfires with a then-unknown Adrianne Lenker (Big Thief.) This will be the last studio album Katie will be releasing for the foreseeable future, as well as her most evolved work to date, so be sure to check it out on bandcamp, Spotify and all other online streaming platforms and stores.
