If you doubt whether or not mesmerism is true, then just get a listen at Katie Talbert's haunting acoustic melodies. Her gripping songwriting is not to be dismissed; it's full of the power of the human heart and conveys emotional truths through vital and original acoustic compositions that linger in the mind for listener consideration even after the stop button is touched.
Music is life and life is music for Talbert. Her passion is a burning fuel for her talent and songwriting is something she must do to survive. Her love and ability shine through each song and the listener is helpless in the touching embrace of Talbert's music. “I always try to ask myself, if I knew the world was listening, what would I have to say? Then I go from there.” Through music she is able to convey the deeper and sometimes harder things that don't always come easily to the surface through other means of communication. Her emotional honesty allows her to touch the hearts of others with her resonating performances. For Talbert, music is the breath of life. “Music has the ability to move people. Music makes me feel alive.”
The fans are a huge part of the reward of music for Talbert. She always has her listeners in mind and relishes the opportunity to share herself and her music with hungry ears. “There's no better feeling in the world than looking out into a crowd and watching people sing along to a song that I wrote at 2 a.m. when I was feeling lonely.” Having an impact on others is a huge part of Talbert's motivations. “Being able to reach people, to connect with people I've never met ... there's nothing in this world that can make you feel more powerful than that.” Perhaps because Talbert's relationship with music is so intimate she is able to express herself as poignantly as she does. At any rate, the listener benefits from music so powerful.
The future holds success for Talbert. This upcoming summer she will be touring with Chelsea Taube through the Midwest and is working hard on songwriting. Early 2013 will see her in the recording studio while performing around the Tampa Bay area. An album is planned for release in time for the summer also the time when she is planning to release the info on the first Operation Coexist music festival to be hosted in Saint Petersburg, Florida. “I truly believe that if anything in this world is going to ever get better then it’s going to have to start with a revolution – I believe that music makes the people come together, music is a universal language. People just need to learn to coexist through music and I have a feeling that could make the world just a little bit better place.” Talbert is working with A&R Select, the leading A&R firm in Hollywood, CA.
