JANUARY 24, 2011 - In the beginning, singer-songwriter KATEY LAUREL had a very different musical destiny in mind - to play French Horn in an orchestra. Somewhere down that line, she picked up a guitar and began putting her thoughts and feelings on life to music. Being the daughter of seasonal migrants, LAUREL lived a vagabond lifestyle with her parents up until the age of four whene the family settled in a small town in Colorado. In such a free-spirited environment with FLEETWOOD MAC, THE EAGLES and EMMYLOU HARRIS as background music, the musical palette of an artist that skillfully sets thoughtfully introspective lyrics to the most winsome alt-country melodies.Her latest release FROM HERE (produced by NEILSON HUBBARD) is a stellar eight-song EP that proves that one of alt-country's finest new voices and writers is here to stay.

ABOUT THE HOST:
BRIAN LUSH holds a BA in Creative Writing from the UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO. He established ROCKWIRED on New Years of 2004 and hasn’t looked back since. He is currently the host of all of ROCKWIRED.COM's programming which includes such shows as ROCKWIRED RADIO PROFILES and ROCKWIRED FREE FORM RADIO. As program producer for ROCKWiRED.COM, LUSH is hands-on when it comes to interviewing and building a lasting rapport with the artists that come ROCKWiRED’s way. As a youngster, BRIAN LUSH had no idea what kind of seed was being planted by reading magazines such as HIT PARADE, HIGH TIMES, SPIN, REQUEST (remember that one?) and even ROLLING STONE. “Those were the days before the internet and being a rock journalist looked like the coolest job imaginable.” says LUSH “But reading these magazines had me imagining that one day I’d be the artist giving all of the clever answers to some poor guy with a tape recorder. Well, life has a way of surprising you. Now, I’m the poor guy with the tape recorder and asking all of the questions.”
