Katie Garibaldi’s new EP, Rooted Clarity, is a bit of a departure from the singer/songwriter’s latest countrified and love-story centered Follow Your Heart album, with a return to her folk-driven roots, a fresh orchestral vibe featuring a mix of classical and country string players, and songs that focus on self-discovery and faith. With an effectively effortless-sounding and moving production, the record smartly spotlights Garibaldi’s trademark soulful and compelling vocals—a sweet soprano that weaves between airy and operatic, taking the listener into the emotional depths of the stories told in these five brand new original songs.
Elmore Magazine describes Garibaldi’s sound as, “sweet, smooth music that is equal parts old-school pop princess and folk songstress. On her upcoming EP, Rooted Clarity, she focuses mainly on the Americana aspect with melody, choral instrumentals, and roots rhythms.”
