Katie Powderly / Press

"...Hauntingly beautiful...'Slips of the Tongue' establishes Powderly as one of Madison's most promising musical talents."

"It's folk noir with a kind of David Lynch-y dreaminess, as though Powderly is struggling to stave off a sort of encroaching darkness. Her pairing of beauty and sadness is one not easily rivaled. But fear not-the album is not a downer. Far from it. It just demonstrates her ability to acknowledge her demons, and maybe even dance with them a little, before casting them off into the night as she makes her first tentative steps toward dawn."

"Katie Powderly's CD 'Slips of the Tongue' is just DAMN FANTASTIC!"

"Her voice wraps itself around a melody and before you know it you're hooked."

"Powderly’s impassioned delivery of these lyrics, combined with Murdock’s harmonies and a keen ear for Smoky Mountains folk and bluegrass tunes, echo Gillian Welch and David Rawlings’ collaboration on Time (The Revelator)."

Jessica Stein - -The Isthmus, Madison, WI

"Besides this Gypsy aesthetic, Powderly is a singer with a plaintive voice rising above her at-times-rollicking finger-style guitar. There's a hint of the Grievous Angel in this mid-west mama's music."

"That song [Tables, Turning] gives me goosebumps. That's a good thing! These are good songs."

Jill Andrews - Jill Andrews

"Full of fun, great songwriting, and vocal harmonies reminiscent of David Rawlings and Gillian Welch, local songsters Evan Murdock and Katie Powderly [have] a spellbinding presence..."

Prentice Berge - www.restaurantmagnus.com

"...pretty vocal harmonies and adorable chemistry"

-The Onion's A.V. Club, Madison, WI

"...[A] skillful singer, Powderly has a husky, hoarse alto that is well suited to mountain music."

Kenneth Burns - -The Isthmus, Madison, WI

"Powderly's voice is haunting."
