Katie Garibaldi is a San Francisco based Singer/Songwriter who has recently released her brand new EP, Rooted Clarity. Branching away from her previous countrified album, Follow Your Heart, Katie returns to her folk‐driven roots with songs that focus on self‐discovery and faith. “These wonderfully crafted songs will make you catch your breath and trap your heart” (Raw Ramp Magazine). The EP brings a mix of classical and country strings together to bring an effective and effortless sound that perfectly highlights Garibaldi’s trademark, soulful voice. The sweet soprano weaves between airy and operatic delving into the emotional depths of the stories behind these five brand new original songs, one of which, “I Am”, premiered on The Boot, the top source for the latest in country music. Elmore Magazine describes Katie’s sound as, “sweet, smooth music that is equal parts old‐school pop princess and folk songstress,” and says that her EP, Rooted Clarity, “focuses mainly on the Americana aspect with melody, choral instrumentals, and roots rhythms.” She has been named a Music Connection Magazine Top 100 Live Unsigned Artist and is an active voting member of the Recording Academy. Awards include Songwriter of the Year from Songsalive!, Emerging Artist of the Year and Best Folk Song for "Stand In My Way" from the Indie Music Channel, and Artist of the Month by The Deli Magazine SF.

The Devil's Chord
The Devil's Chord is an offshoot of San Francisco band Biv and the Mnemonics, who have been playing shows and gaining fans in the Bay Area and beyond since 2009. They offer an upbeat and melodic combination of ‘60s rock, homegrown folk, a little country twang and funky, punk-ish rhythms that all manages to sound both warmly familiar and refreshingly new.
