"I was shopping for peaches at a farmers market and heard the low thrum of a baritone ukulele and a voice somewhere between Billie Holiday and David Byrne. It was Katie Sachs. Delicious melodies. Juicy lyrics."
-Monte Belmonte, 93.9 The River
Katie Sachs is a singer-songwriter and community organizer who came into this world with a serious ear for music and relentless drive to transform, connect and support movement through creativity. With a sound that draws influence from Jazz, New Wave and Folk, Katie explores complex melodies and rarely discussed subject matter (everything from Golgi Apparatuses, to the foster care system, and even a love song to her vocal chords!) Her voice has been described as having "a deliciously pure tone, with a calculated warble that displays a creamy melodic integrity." Katie released her much awaited sophomore album "The Giantness of Little Things" in April 2015. Involved in this project were such notable musicians as Wilson Marks (New Folks Finalist, The Loveleighs) Brannen Temple (Chaka Kahn, Bonnie Raitt, The Dixie Chicks) and Andrew Pressman (Raina Rose, Ben Kweller). Katie is a co-founder of The Woman's Songwriter Collective of Western, MA and her debut EP "Places not on Maps" was released in 2012. She is currently based out of Austin, TX and has toured extensively across the United States. She has written the material for her third studio album, entitled "In the dark (songs about sex and death)" and plans to release it sometime in 2017.
