Music is the sway of her hair as it swings through the melodies in the air. Music is the stomp of her boot as she commands the drums and drives the percussion. Music is on the tip of her fingers as they dance over strings and keys. Music is in her yell and her whisper as she calls out her story. Music is in her muscles, bones and blood as she dances to a beat that no one knows but she. She is music and Music is she.
Here is a small, but strong representation of the talent and diversity of women in music.
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.

Beer and light food will be provided.

MisFEST: Music is She and She is Music Festival provides a platform to empower women to succeed in the music industry. We are building a community of females in the music business by collaborating together and showcasing our talents in areas such as songwriting, performing, instrumentation, music production and sound engineering.
Because it’s still a “thing” to have a female bass player or DJ or drummer, and until it’s not a “thing”, events like MisFEST are needed.
