"Think of Carrie Underwood with the virtuoso talent of Beyonce and the quiet soulfulness of Adele." With her honest, lyrical poeticism, melodic vocal agility, and heartbreakingly vulnerable live performance, Katie is the perfect combination of roots-y, confessional folk with a contemporary, soulful freshness. Following graduation from UCLA where she gained a loyal fan-base, winning best solo and overall performance 3 years in a row at Spring Sing, the annual concert event drawing over 10,000 attendees, Katie landed a touring gig in an all-female cover band--in India. What she thought would merely be a great way to make her first decent living as a musician, turned into a life-changing, inspiring experience, personally and musically. Conceiving and writing most of the new material on her forthcoming EP while in India, Katie returned home and immediately assembled a band of her own, refining her new sound, and playing venues to rapidly growing audience in New York and LA like Hotel Cafe, Room 5, Bootleg Bar, Rockwood Music Hall, and The Living Room. Katie is, as some have called her, a “revelation”--one of the most honest and exciting female artists to emerge from the LA music scene in recent years.
The Plastic Arts:
"...achingly beautiful..." (Relate Magazine)

"...lyrically and emotionally potent songs...an accomplished storyteller." (Listen Before You Buy)
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.
