November 25, 2015

press release: Come celebrate Katie’s third album release party at Brewery Pottery. Katie’s new album Weighted Balloon will be for sale on CD and vinyl. Katie Burns Band (Katie, Eric Miller and cello and Michael Sherry and drums) will also play the full album, live throughout the evening.

Weighted Balloon is the third studio album by American singer/songwriter Katie Burns. The album was recorded at ARC Studios in Omaha, Neb., and produced by Katie Burns and Ben Brodin. Katie and Ben pulled out ARC’s vintage equipment including a 1960s Silvertone guitar, Neil Young’s very own Neumann M49 microphone, an old ’60s echo machine, Hammond B3 organ, a tiny celesta and an old banjo and began to record.

Join Katie Burns as she celebrates the release of her album Weighted Balloon at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12, at Brewery Pottery. Katie will be accompanied by Eric Miller and Michael Sherry.

Weighted Balloon is Katie’s third album. Katie teamed up with Ben Brodin of ARC Studios in Omaha, Neb., who also produced Throw the Flowers Down. Read about that album here. Her angelic voice is backed by Brodin and the stellar Eric Miller of Madison, who plays cello and trumpet and has performed many times with Katie in Mineral Point and around the area.

Katie used vintage equipment in the studio, giving the recording a rich and timeless sound, which turned her thoughts to pressing vinyl. “The vinyl sounds magical,” Katie says. “I can’t explain it. When we finished the project Ben really encouraged me to press the vinyl. He was right.”

Katie’s poetic lyrics seem simple, but they cut right to the things that matter. Her songs are about relationships – with children, parents, lovers, and one’s own self and place in the world. Her songs search for what’s important, and reveal more depth with each listening.

Details: 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12. Brewery Pottery, 276 Shake Rag St., Mineral Point. CD and vinyl copies of Weighted Balloon will be for sale. Children are welcome. Bring your snow globes for the video, but if you don’t have one there will be plenty to share. Visit and like Katie Burns Music on Facebook.
