Light Has Dawned
Katie Kapteyn: An Introduction The music of Katie Kapteyn deals with truth discovered on desert roads and in honest eyes. Influenced as much by her mother's singing voice and family's strength as the songwriting of Patty Griffin and Cindy Morgan, Katie is a soul whose sharply-penned verses find the meaning in the common. In a world of unceasing noise, in a society where Blackberries buzz and Twitter updates us all of so many things that never really mattered, Katie's songs stand out with a quiet determination, as if both the singer and the choruses won't be swayed from turning your eye to the eternal. "I see playing shows as a conversation," she says. "I'm not some a performer that puts on a flashy performance. My desire is to see people drawn into the songs, to find themselves in the story, to be blessed and encouraged in some way."
