Bio and One-Sheet
"Katie Dahl . . . combine[s] old-fashioned populism, an abiding love of the land and wickedly smart love songs, all delivered in a rich and expressive alto."
"Singer-songwriter Katie Dahl keeps getting better and better. "Leaky Boats and Paper Birds" is a beautifully crafted album, with poetic lyrics made even more evocative by gorgeous melodies and lovely guitar picking. Katie's low, rich voice is the real deal, and you can feel her love for the land, lakes and people of the Upper Midwest in every song. The production and backing musicians are also top-notch."
"Katie Dahl is a honey-throated alto thrush and an eagle-eyed songwriter who soars high on her debut album."
"Katie Dahl has a keen eye for the life of the heart and the life of the world. She also has a sharp pen, a strong voice, and the intelligence, compassion and musical sensibility to write and perform songs that are a pure joy to hear. Katie makes me see, feel and think about things that are real, and gives me good laughs, heart-tugs and inspiration along the way. County Line is a superb debut album. May it be the first of many from a singer-songwriter you need to get to know."
"Sophisticated without putting on airs."
"Katie Dahl is a writer of such depth and laser-sharp perception, you almost expect her to have a thousand shows and a million miles behind her. But then she shows up with a stage demeanor that is so innocent and utterly without guile, you wonder at her maturity."
