ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“A mix of highly danceable western swing with a splash of jump
blues and more than a sultry moment or two fueled by Glassman’s
breathy vocals and steamy solos.”
–Strings Magazine

“Glassman’s fiddling is magnificent, cheerfully shape-shifting
between hot jazz stylings of Stephane Grappelli and Joe Venuti
and the western swing fiddling heard in Bob Wills and His Texas
Playboys.”
– All About Jazz

“One of the most exciting singers, musicians, and composers in the
country, Katie possesses the uncommon ability to blend tradition
with contemporary color.”
– Joey McKenzie

Katie Glassman and Snapshot marry the soul of old-time Western music with
contemporary songwriting and musicianship. Set to release their second album, Dream a
Little Dream, in March of 2014, they are quickly becoming Colorado’s premier
purveyors of original and vintage Western Swing music.
The band’s first record, Snapshot, was released in 2012, featuring 16 of Katie’s original
songs played by an all-star band of Denver’s top musicians. This release was followed by
a year of performing at festivals, performing arts centers, jazz clubs and more.
In 2013, the road-tested group went into the studio as a quartet to record the current
release, Dream A Little Dream. A true collaboration, this record is the sound of a band in
full swing, featuring five original songs and a handful of chestnuts from the vintage
American songbook. Recorded live in the studio, each member’s contribution shines. Eric
Moon’s jazzy but retro piano and accordion, Charlie Mertens’ slapping and thumping
bass and Greg Schochet’s 1940s guitar stylings are the perfect match for Katie’s
formidable fiddle chops and stylish singing and songwriting.

Katie began playing Western Swing fiddle at the age of nine and has never looked back.
Nationally renowned as a player and teacher, she has been nearly unbeatable on the
contest circuit in recent years, winning both the prestigious 2013 Rockygrass and Walnut
Valley competitions, as well as the 2014 Colorado State Championship.
In addition to her red-hot fiddling, Katie is an expressive songwriter and singer.
Her songs explore modern emotional landscapes with sensitivity and wit while still
providing the band a platform to showcase their instrumental virtuosity. Katie Glassman
and Snapshot play timeless music with a modern sensibility.
