New Jersey-based singer/songwriter Katie Henry will be releasing her new blues album this month. On My Way is set to be released on January 28th on Ruf Records. The highly anticipated album is a follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2018 debut release High Road.
Having been compared to Bonnie Raitt and Janis Joplin at their most magnetic, the future is bright for Katie. On My Way is a very personal album that was recorded in May of last year in Brooklyn, New York’s Degraw Sound. Produced by guitarist Ben Rice, the project also features Antar Goodwin (bass/slide guitar), Kurt Thum (piano/organ), Greg Wieczorek (drums/percussion) along with British harpist Giles Robson.
As for the recording process, Katie had this to say, “we recorded the album live during the pandemic, and it was so fun to be able to record in a room with people after feeling isolated for such a long time. The majority of the album was recorded live, and I love that feeling. It’s like capturing lightning in a bottle.”
A New Jersey born blues artist, she’s paid her dues working the New York City music scene winning over fans one show at a time. She’s got the guitar chops and stage presence to take it to the next level with the release of her new album.
A full slate of shows is lined up, Katie will be performing a series of dates in the US before heading off to Europe for a tour of Germany. For additional updates you can visit her website or follow along on Instagram and Twitter.
