“Katie Stump is one of the few artists that manages to successfully straddle the line between country and pop/folk without ever quite naming herself either genre. This single is representative of that. The lead single from Stump's upcoming EP, Feels Like Home, this single follows her debut album Natural, and her sophomore record Puzzle Pieces, which drew a little more from the folk-pop side of her influences. This single marks her return to the more country influenced songs of her debut, and more importantly, shows off her growing and developing talent. Written by Stump and Jason Afable [...] "Treasure Map" is a country pop masterpiece... The main lyric, "it's just you and me / and this homemade treasure map" is simple, but beautiful. Katie Stump's new EP hits iTunes September 18th. If the whole EP is as good as this song, this next year could be Stump's breakout year, where more and more people will be able to discover the amount of talent that she has.”

“Twenty-year-old Katie Stump may be young, but she has quite the musical resume that many artists can only dream of having. With more than 200 songs written, ranked as a top 10 singer-songwriter in Los Angeles by ReverbNation and two full-length produced albums, Stump is a multi-talented force in the musical scene in Southern California. The support of family encouraged the young artist to pursue a career in music at an early age. She is now a member of the music program at USC completing her second year and has expanded her reach to venues all over Southern California including the House of Blues, Room 5 and many more. Think Taylor Swift, Colbie Caillat and Ingrid Michaelson and a hybrid of country/pop and you have Katie Stump.”

“Puzzle Pieces, the sophomore release from Los Angeles singer/songwriter Katie Stump, is a remarkable expression of the soul that asks her audience to think, feel and love a little deeper than before. As an independent artist, she is cleverly carving out her own creative space and rendering an authentic collection of songs that tug relentlessly at the heart and all of its proverbial strings. Playful, inspiring, heartfelt and thought provoking, she makes a steadfast and earnest appeal for connection. Engaging at every turn, this album takes its listeners on a ride that pulls them to pieces, puts them together and has them begging for more. Says music producer Corey Gonzalez, of Fullerton, California’s S1 Studios, "It's not just a wealth of musical styles or her smooth and expressive voice that makes Katie such a fine artist. Her songs, which range from thoughtful to silly to poetic, truly connect with her audience and can be enjoyed by everyone."”
