Katie Mullins / Mumbledust – The Sentient Bean – 08/30/12

From The Sentient Bean:

“Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Katie Mullins is sure to capture the attention of those who love the simplicity of chick indie rock with her latest album, Pastoral. At first listen the lyrics seem to be basic storytelling, offering anecdotes that remind you of easier, younger days, but Mullins has a way of catching your ear with a line that speaks straight to the heart.” —The Deli

After studying classical singing, Katie Mullins moved to Berlin in search of the unknown. During her six year stint in Germany, her musical pendulum swung from one extreme to the other. She sang in operas at the Komische Oper, played shows with a country band, Rose’s Shoulder, and acted in plays and films. Katie was hired by European and American theater performance artists for her versatility as an entertainer, and has performed in Madrid, Geneva, Düsseldorf, Berlin and New York. All the while, Katie has quietly and continuously written music, weaving folk, experimental and classical influences into her distinctive original songs. Her debut album, Pastoral, is a collection of love songs written about and within Berlin and New York.

I can’t find any embeddable tracks of Mullins, but she’s got a gorgeous voice, which you can hear on her Facebook page.

Local act Mumbledust will open. Here’s “Last Night I Walked with a Zombie”:
