MisFEST kickoff event with Katie Herzig
Nashville’s Katie Herzig will perform for the first time in Tulsa at MisFEST, September 15th. The night before she headlines the MisFEST stage, she will join us for a special “behind the scenes” Q&A style event. We will discuss her songwriting process, her journey as an independent musician, her experience as one of the few female producers in the industry, and she will perform a few solo songs for a one-of-a-kind, intimate experience. Beer and light food will be provided.
An opening reception is set to start at 6:30 p.m. at the Woody Guthrie Center, 102 E. M.B. Brady St., with the program to start at 7. Tickets are $20, available here, by calling 918-574-2710 or at the Woody Guthrie Center front desk.
To put Katie Herzig in any sort of box is for it to be broken, as she continues to outdo herself with each new release. Her music is as intimate as it is epic – something that her fans have come to expect. Herzig grew up in Colorado and found her way to Nashville upon starting her solo career in 2006. Fresh off the 2018 release of her 6th album, Moment of Bliss, Herzig tours the US this summer for the first time in 4 years on her highly-anticipated Moment of Bliss Tour. Herzig has performed at Bonnaroo, on VH1, toured extensively both as a headliner and as support for artists such as Brandi Carlile, Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, The Fray, and as a member of 10 out of Tenn. She has had her music licensed for many film, TV, and commercial uses including over 10 songs on Grey’s Anatomy. Her song “Free My Mind” reached top 20 on AAA radio which led to a collaboration with RAC on their song “We Belong,” earning a lot of love from LA’s KCRW and the like and a remix of the song by Odesza. Herzig has always been very hands on in the production of her own music which has led to opportunities to co-write and produce music for other artists as well, including Ingrid Michaelson’s platinum-selling single “Girls Chase Boys.” ASCAP awarded Katie the Sammy Cahn Award for her song “Closest I Get.” In 2017 Katie was nominated for an Emmy for her song “Morse Code” written for Netflix’s The Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show. An eclectic career for an artist who has always relied on her own instincts to consistently release music that goes deep and asks you to feel something at every turn.
