FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Singer-Songwriter Katey Laurel Releases Official “Hurricane” Music Video
Upcoming new album “Periscope” produced by Warren Huart
(Denver, CO) January 07, 2014 – Pop/folk singer-songwriter Katey Laurel is announcing the release of her official “Hurricane” music video to coincide with the release of her new full-length album Periscope, produced by recording industry veteran Warren Huart (The Fray, Aerosmith). The video stars Denver actors Meghan McMahon, Alex Boccia and Miranda Reno and was produced by Breck Larson Productions. The video is available at the singer's YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/kateylaurel.
Presented with a solid, radio-friendly hook guaranteed to stay in the listener’s mind long after the song is over, “Hurricane” delves into the idea of finding the “eye of the storm” amid the chaos and struggles of relationships. The topic fits well with the overarching theme of Periscope, which explores the dichotomy and tension between struggle and hope in which life is lived. Recorded at Harmony and Spitfire Studios in Los Angeles, the upcoming album and its first single easily represent Laurel’s most poignant and accessible work to date.
As a songwriter, Katey has won or placed in numerous songwriting competitions around the country (including the Tucson Folk Festival and the Great American Song Contest). Her songs have been well received by Triple A radio stations around the country and have garnered multiple film, television and advertisement placements. As a performer, she has shared the stage with the likes of Howie Day, Katie Herzig, Matt Morris, Bill Mallonee, Trevor Hall and others.
