Lyrics from Where the Road Meets the SunKatie Herzig is a Nashville-based singer/songwriter whose work has been featured on television shows such as Grey’s Anatomy and Cougar Town. She was born into a musical family, but only seriously began to learn guitar as a high school senior after her father gave her one as a birthday present. She studied at the University of Colorado at Boulder, graduating with a degree in journalism. Throughout her college years, she was a member of the band Newcomers Home. Initially, Herzig served as a backup vocalist due to her anxiety during live performance but soon overcame her fears and became the band’s lead vocalist. In 2006 the band broke up, but by that time Herzig had already released her solo debut, Watch Them Fall which won her individual recognition. She has since recorded three other studio albums, and her most recent effort The Waking Sleep was released in 2011.
