Katie Von Schleicher

Record of the Month: Katie Von Schleicher

Late in 2017, NYC based singer-songwriter (and vocalist for Wilder Maker) Katie Von Schleicher came out with a poignant and plaintive album with the not-so-poetic title Shitty Hits. From the very beginning, opener The Image treats the listener to Von Schleicher’s unusual, yet elegant melodies, supported by an unexpectedly noisy production based on a new, intriguing approach to loud/quiet/loud. The results are spectacular. The perfectly controlled, vaguely industrial clangor keeps coming in the following tracks, together with Katie’s incredibly beautiful vocal lines, forging a record that’s as unique as it is enjoyable and moving. Perhaps it’s true, these songs aren’t hits, but, on the other hand, they are definitely art.

Katie is touring the US and Europe this spring, don't miss the 4.06 show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg and her performances at SXSW.

Katie Von Schleicher plays Union Pool on 10.19 before UK/EU tour

Singer-songwriter and vocalist for Wilder Maker's Katie Von Schleicher will play Union Pool as part of LPR Presents on October 19th. She's kept busy promoting her second commercial album, self-depreciatively titled Shitty Hits, which came out in July and was well received by Pitchfork, The Guardian, PopMatters, and other major publications. The Union Pool show will be one of Von Schleicher's last in NYC for a while, as she's setting off on a grand UK/EU tour for most of the fall. She'll venture through the UK, Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands before heading back to the states and NYC in December. Hear "Sell It Back" from Shitty Hits below, and catch her before she crosses the pond. - Will Sisskind

NYC Songwriter Katie Von Schleicher opens for Eleanor Friedberger on 11.09 at Pianos

NYC songwriter Katie Von Schleicher will be opening for Eleanor Friedberger (former lead singer of The Fiery Furnaces) at Pianos on November 09. Back in 2012, Katie released a beautiful eight track mini album entitled "Silent Days," featuring streaming single "When The Rain Comes." The record follows folk rock coordinates that suit Katie's full bodied alto and passionately intimate lyrics.  Since that release, it looks like Katie only released two singles online, both slow, stripped out ballads: 2013's "White Flag" and this year's "My Body on Through," hopefully is a sign of a new record to come. You can also see her live tonight at Deli sponsored event The Hum at the Manhattan Inn.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best songs by emerging NYC Roots artists - check it out!


Kaki King and Bridget from Lake Street Dive perform at the last night of Deli sponsored series The Hum on 10.26

Monday October 26th marks the last appointment with the Deli Sponsored, collaborative series The Hum at Greeinpoint's Manhattan Inn, featuring several talented female NYC musicians, collaborating with each other on new material.

Monday will see a heck of a lot of talent, starting with amazing, mesmerizing guitarist Kaki King, accompanied on drums by Kiran Gandhi of Madame Gandhi. Following up, a three way collaboration between experimental violinist Jeanann Dara, singer Katie Von Schleicher of mellow rootsy quintet Wilder Maker and out of control noise rock DIY artist Rose Blanshei of Prima - this one promises sparkles. The night will end with three more women on stage: soulful singer Alisha Roney of Feathers+Eyes, classic soul singer Amy Leon and Bridget Kearney from wonderful folk rock band Lake Street Dive.

This is going to be a great night of music, see you there, there will be a lot of Deli mags for you to read in between performances!
