Katie Herzig headlined The Crocodile last night, but didn’t come alone. Supporting Katie on this leg of the tour was Andrew Belle. Andrew is a singer/songwriter from Nashville (via Illinois). Andrew’s latest EP, The Daylight, was release back in February. You might have heard songs from it, as well as from his earlier CD, The Ladder, on TV shows such as Pretty Little Liars, Grey’s Anatomy, The Vampire Diaries, One Tree Hill and more. His song “Sky’s Still Blue” was featured in a major campaign promoting Windows 7, Windows Live and Windows Phone 7. Andrew is also a part of “Ten out of Tenn,” a group of 10 musicians out of Nashville who tour together, collaborate on songs, sing together onstage, as well as perform their own originals, utilizing the other musicians as their back up performers. (Katie Herzig is also a part of that group). Belle asked Herzig (who also is featured on his CD) to join him onstage to perform his song, “Static Waves.” Seattle was Belle’s last show for the tour, as he is off to get back home for his wedding this summer!

Herzig and her band played a lengthy set which included songs from her latest release, The Waking Sleep. Like Belle, Herzig’s songs can also be heard on many TV series. To the audience’s surprise, she asked a special guest out on stage 1/2 way through her set. Matthew Perryman Jones (who will be joining Herzig on the next leg of her tour) stepped from behind the curtain, and they sang a beautiful version of their duet, “Where The Road Meets The Sun.” Perryman Jones, a singer/songwriter from Nashville, is also a part of “Ten Out of Tenn” with Herzig and Belle.

Prior to the encore, Herzig and her band played a very fun cover version of “Sweet Dreams” (The Eurythmics), which actually culminated in showcasing a memorable portion of “Seven Nation Army” (The White Stripes). Katie continues to tour, with this tour ending May 19 in Kentucky, and she will play some summer festivals including Seattle’s Bumbershoot in September. Her next CD is slated to be out later this year.
