Homemade Jams: Songs To Grow A Better World
Sontag’s music seeks to move listeners to examine the deepest part of themselves.
- Matthew Denis, The Register Guard
Katie Sontag writes songs for her own healing and transformation and seeks to inspire the same in others. Her voice trembles with striking vulnerability as her songwriting goes on journeys into the depth of personal growth, utilizing human relationships and the natural world as her primary muses. Katie serenades her audience and invites them to sing along, leaving them feeling better then when they came. Experiencing her music has been described as "a big hug". Heart-felt, illuminated Folk, she is often compared to Joni Mithcell and the great folk legends of that time. Her songs have been adapted for choirs such as The Portland Peace Choir and She is the lead vocalist and songwriter for her band, Temple Under the Stars, a group song leader and music teacher based in Eugene, Oregon.
