New York City might be quite of a tough place to be a folk singer: skyscrapers, city lights and millions of people clashing every day into the subways, alleys and roads of the Big Apple.
Standing up in the middle of all of that armed with an acoustic guitar and a notebook full of earnest lyrics takes a special blend of courage which is often overlooked. On “Paint Me”, Katie Garringer shares her unique experience of moving to New York City. This stunning folk song highlights Katie’s beautiful voice and it feels like an impressionistic painting. If you close your eyes, you can really let Katie’s genuine words guide you through the many magical corners of this city, from the streets of Brooklyn to the bright lights of Midtown or a quiet residential neighborhood in the Upper West Side.
This song is a romantic ode to New York City and a stunning, honest portrait of an artist reaching out for something greater.
