A few years back, Katie Costello became somewhat of a legend among independent artists when she created an entire music video from her iPhone 4.
After what seems like an eternity, Costello has returned with a new EP that is easily one of the best of 2015. Her new five-track EP, Rebel Pop Singer Songwriter, has been released on a limited basis, but belongs in the hands of every serious music lover.
According to Costello,”This EP is about following your dreams, fighting for what’s right, listening to your heart, and connecting to a bigger picture . . . This EP is dedicated towards the mission of building a “New World” filled with love, one step at a time.”
With tracks produced by Robbie G (New York Graffiti, New World and Roses) and Seth Jones (Up in the Air and Why Does my Heart Break?) and written by Costello with help from Robert Guariglia (New York Graffiti, New World and Roses), Seth Jones and Michelle Lewis (Up in the Air) and Seth Jones (Why Does my Heart Break?), every song delivers its message in a way that few other artists have mastered – from the heart of the writer directly to the heart of the listener.
She has also released a video for the first track, “New York Graffiti,” which captures some of the magic of an indie artist who isn’t afraid to busk in New York’s Washington Square Park. Check it out below:
Throughout her career, Costello has consistently delivered some of the best content of any musical artist, signed or not. Her latest EP is just further proof that her music belongs to the masses. Thank you Ms. Costello for restoring our faith in the power of music to change our lives and make this a better world.
