Katie Burden

Katie Burden's stylized atmospheric rock and shamanistic delivery often conjure up the ghost of Jim Morrison but in a modern context, falls somewhere between Bat for Lashes and Joan as Police Woman.

After being Raised in a small hippy town in Colorado, Burden spent her formative years bouncing around NYC and later San Francisco. In 2012 she moved to LA and after attending a meditation retreat, synchronistically fell in with a group of blue chip musicians including drummer/producer Norm Block (Mark Lanegan, Jennylee of Warpaint and Plexi) and guitarist Jen Turner of Here We Go ...read more

Katie Burden's stylized atmospheric rock and shamanistic delivery often conjure up the ghost of Jim Morrison but in a modern context, falls somewhere between Bat for Lashes and Joan as Police Woman.

After being Raised in a small hippy town in Colorado, Burden spent her formative years bouncing around NYC and later San Francisco. In 2012 she moved to LA and after attending a meditation retreat, synchronistically fell in with a group of blue chip musicians including drummer/producer Norm Block (Mark Lanegan, Jennylee of Warpaint and Plexi) and guitarist Jen Turner of Here We Go Magic and Explanation Pony.

Katie happened to have hundreds of song sketches recorded as voice memos on her phone and after she played them for her new friends there was no looking back. Block stepped into the roles of Producer while turner helped flesh out the recordings that became Burden's debut EP My BLind Eye. The 5 song set was released on Norm's Cautionary Tail label and was met with critical kudos from Buzzbands LA, Impose and avideo premiere on USA Today who noted the debut had a "mysterious, experimental appeal." The EP also made a fan of Jenny Lee (Warpaint) who asked Katie to sing backup vocals on a track on her newest LP Right On.

Katie toured My Blind Eye up and down the west coast, being welcomed into major musical hotspots including The Deer Lodge in Ojai, Hotel utah in San Fran and El Cid back in LA where she opened for Jenny Lee. Upon her return she felt pulled back into the studio where she began tracking her follow up full length, Strange Moon with her now tightly knit band of collaborators.

The dark and moody undercurrents of the new material called for Burden to dig deeper into her emotional well, something that she struggled with when performing the songs. "I have a hard time feeling emotions sometimes" the songwriter notes. "Art makes me less afraid to feel and also less alone." « hide
