Singer/Songwriter Katie Armiger to Perform at Husson University's Gracie Theatre

Date of Release: March 23, 2012

Katie Armiger, a Nashville singer/songwriter whose vocal ability and talent compares to the likes of seasoned country artists like Shania Twain, Sara Evans and Martina McBride will appear in concert on Tuesday, April 3rd at 8:00 p.m. at the Gracie Theatre at Husson University. Sponsored by Husson's Student Activities board, tickets are $15.00 for adults, $7.00 for students not enrolled in Husson or NESCom. Tickets can be ordered online at www.gracietheatre.com or purchased at Rebecca's Gift Store, Main Street, Bangor.

At the ripe age of 20, this singer/songwriter does not hold back. Her combination of determination and passion shines through in her music, particularly her new CD "Confessions of a Nice Girl" with songs that are described as confident, bold, assertive and vulnerable, much like the singer herself. With an impressive variety of original songs, Katie's music touches upon every emotion imaginable and she unapologetically showcases her feelings in her performances. The Texas natives herself admits, "I know exactly what I want and I hope you can figure that out by listening to this album." (Confessions of a Nice Girl).

With a first album release at the age of 15, Katie has accomplished more in four years than most people twice her age. Her single "Kiss Me Now", the flirtatious ode to new love, co-written with Sarah Buston and Blair Daly was her second to hit the Top 40 on the Billboard Indicator Chart, while "Trails of Lies" landed in the Top 20 on Music Row, setting a record as the Highest Charting Independent Female Artist in 2009.

Opening the show will be local singer/songwriter Emily Guillow. Emily is a senior at Hampden Academy and, like Katie, has been a performing artist throughout her youth. This year, she performed at the Trails End Musical Festival and the Winterport Music Festival and appears regularly at the Sea Dog and other venues in downtown Bangor.
