Ep 116 Katianne Timko RewindReplay (Pre-K808)
August 21, 2017 05:04 PM PDT
Recorded in 2012
It was very enjoyable to get to know the person behind the music of Katianne Timko. Much like her music she is a very grounded, warm, and poised person. We covered a lot of ground in the interview and I especially liked the question and answer about her alleged “abstract” lyrics. We also covered the importance of good sound, promotion, and allowing fans of her music to arrive at their own take on her songs and the inspiration behind her lyrics. Katianne performs an unreleased song “Black Magic.” Please check out her new artist name K808 to see when and where she’s performing next and read my review of her first EP below. Check back here another day and watch her video performance of her new song “Black Magic.”

Katianne Timko – “What I Wanted” EP
Imagine a quirky coffee shop but instead of small tables and soft furniture, imagine a campfire smack dab in the middle. Katianne Timko’s EP “What I Wanted” is the soundtrack to this hypothetical setting. Sometimes talent hides and only pops out of the blue when it’s good and ready. This is an enjoyable mini-collection of songs. The folky campfire guitars and banjo are nice and work together in a unique way, but Timko’s voice really stands out and is really well complimented by the soft moody violin. The song “Resistence,” my favorite track on the CD, is the highpoint of the CD. The instrumentation which includes guitars, violin, and banjo, compared to the.. maybe a bit-too-busy string instrument battle in the opening track “beauty in black and white,” is very well mixed and truly surrounds Katianne’s voice in a warm blanket of sonic delight. “Resistence” is a great tune; it get’s in your head, loads itself into your aural memory jukebox and get’s stuck on repeat, which for me was a welcomed event.
What’s important to note about Katianne’s voice and vocal style, is that it is HER own voice. Many singers stear their voice towards this archetypal rock idol voice which usually produces a strained timbre that is less than desirable. I really enjoy the emotional quality of phrases like “you say..” … “no I’m not..no I’m not,” because it is pure and sincere. Her vocal style is refreshing and stylistic, combining a rapid Traci Chapman vibrato, and coffee-shop artist texture reminiscent of the voice of indie singer/songwriter Jewel. Timko’s lyrics are personal, sincere, and fit her melodies like a glove. If you like Katianne’s voice you should check out Jewel’s LP “Pieces of You,” and a new indie band Carolyn and the Goodnight Sleeps.”
