‘Two Hearts Are Better Than One’

Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Katie Herzig has been riding an ever-growing wave of acclaim for last year’s Apple Tree album, and well deserved it is too. Her degree in journalism may safeguard her somewhat from any truly awful write ups – and who doesn’t love to criticise us critics? – but honestly, you’d have to be cloth-eared not to hear the magic in her music and gentle Tennessean twang. ‘Two Hearts Are Better Than One’ first came into the world through an appearance on a chips ‘n’ dips advert over in the US before being picked up by her longtime fans at Paste magazine (which, by the way, could do with a few of your pennies). It’s by no means the first time that Katie’s music has graced the screen either. Her songs have featured on hit shows like ‘Bones’ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, and in the Nashville documentary ‘A Nashville State Of Mind’. Her early interest in folk and bluegrass has, over time, allowed a penchant for pop to slowly steal in, giving her music a charmingly accessible quality that sealed her crossover potential. ‘Two Hearts Are Better Than One’ is a cheerful, banjo-inflected ditty that’s short and sweet at just under two minutes, and a perfect introduction for newcomers to this talented artist. MP3 after the jump.
