Katie Glassman & Snapshot
“Dream a Little Dream hits your ears like a record pulled from a 1940s time capsule combining the best of the Carter family tradition with that era’s jazzy piano riffs.”
— No Depression
“The harmonies are sunshine and the playing is heavenly.”
— The Alternate Root Magazine
“You can’t help but tap your feet to this infectious music.”
— Pop Culture Classics
“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
— 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
New Album – Cover Art
Katie Glassman and Snapshot marry the soul of old-time Western music with contemporary songwriting and musicianship. With the release of their second album, Dream a Little Dream, in 2014, they are quickly becoming Colorado’s premier purveyors of original and vintage Western swing music.
Nationally renowned as a player and teacher, Katie is a two-time national fiddle champion. Snapshot is the perfect vehicle for her formidable fiddle chops and stylish singing and songwriting.
Dream a Little Dream is a true collaboration; 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, this is timeless music with a modern sensibility.
