Denver-based Folk-pop songstress Katey Laurel crafts both radio-friendly pop tunes and lush, cinematic songs for film and TV. The common thread is the intelligence of her lyricism and the honesty of her voice. Katey has been honored as a finalist in the Tucson Folk Festival Songwriting Competition, a winner and alternate in two categories of the Walnut Valley Festival NewSong Contest in Winfield, KS and a showcase artist selected for the Midpoint Music Festival in Cincinnati, OH. Most recently, she is a finalist and semi-finalist in the Great American Song Contest and International Songwriting Competition. Her music has been featured as part of Microsoft Windows 7 “Playlist 7” and Heineken “Ultimate Playlist” sponsored song programs, and she was one of 7 national finalists in the Nine West “Voices of Vintage America” contest. Most recently, she has been nominated as “Best Local Band” by Denver ABC Channel 7’s “A-List”, Westword “Singer/Songwriter 2011” and she was a Southwest Regional finalist and Colorado winner in the 2011 Texaco Country Showdown. As a live performer, Katey has shared the stage with Howie Day, Matt Morris, Katie Herzig, Bill Mallonee, Karla Bonoff, Braddigan (of Dispatch), The Bittersweets, Trevor Hall and others.
