Song of the Week
Katie Thompson
Good as gold
Katie Thompson describes her music influences as "Kiwi roots". Having grown up in New Zealand, she was influenced by local music heroines like Anika Moa, Mel Parsons and Anna Coddington. Katie doesn't deny her country roots, but her music also has other influences.

After participating in a number of festivals and other music events and winning a few competitions, Katie Thompson signed up on SellaBand to raise funds for her debut album. In the meantime, however, she managed to record and release an album by herself. A few months after releasing Tall Poppy, in spring 2009, she entered a competition called Raboidol run by RaboPlus in New Zealand. After a month of getting votes from fans all around the world, Katie won and the bank invested $ 10 000 in her SellaBand album fund. After that it didn't take long - in less than three months Katie reached her target of $ 50 000. The album, recorded in London, will be released in March this year.

More success followed. The album's first single, Good As Gold, flew to No. 1 on the New Zealand country charts on iTunes just two days after its release. The bouncy, uplifting song, accompanied by a video where Katie's fans can see her and her team in action in the studio, brought Katie new fans, while her old fans found themselves waiting for her album Impossible with even more impatience.
