After following in the footsteps of fellow Bruins Sara Bareilles and Adam Levine, winning UCLA's widely known campus talent competition Spring Sing for a record-breaking 3 years in a row, Katie dove into the world of independent artistry, playing her songs in a variety of venues, listening rooms and theaters across the country. From Hotel Café to Rockwood Music Hall, Katie has come a long way from her roots in rural Montana. However, it was her 6 month journey performing throughout India, an experience complete with Eat, Pray, Love-esque inspiration, that resulted in a 6 song, Kickstarter funded EP entitled "Speaking of You" that elegantly chronicles her early 20's, addressing the notions of attachment and uncertainty as it relates to romantic and familial love. Live tracked with her 4 piece band, the players are precise and yet sensitive. The songs themselves are ruminative, musing, pensive and fundamentally intelligent. Katie's vocals are ethereal and yet also adroit, with harmonies that are tastefully offered allowing everything to mesh tightly, but not statically. While her EP is an impressive debut, its live on stage where Katie's true spirit as a natural-born performer can be witnessed. A beautiful and transparent singer/songwriter with "awesome talent and a captivating stage presence--[Katie Boeck's] live performance is as impressive as any we've seen around the LA music scene."--Blue House Records

The Plastic Arts is the musical efforts of San Francisco Bay Area songwriter, Kyle M. Terrizzi.
His vocals are often compared to the likes of Jeff Buckley and John Mayer, but is musically more often associated with the alt-country style of Heartbreaker-era Ryan Adams, the pop sensibilities of David Gray, with a touch of Morrissey melancholia, and the confessional, narrative lyricism of early Counting Crows.
Academy Clonez is the first full length release from The Plastic Arts, as well as the first definitive artistic and musical statement from Kyle M. Terrizzi under that moniker and has received unanimous praise from local and national press.
