Herzig has been writing memorable songs for a while now. Her first solo album, Weightless (2006), garnered critical praise and its songs were featured on Grey’s Anatomy, E.R., and others. Weightless was, and is, an example for all DIY artists to follow. Soon after its release, Herzig made that long, lonesome drive across America’s bread basket to set-up shop in Nashville.

Only two songs bear someone else’s name on her most recent album, Apple Tree: “I Will Follow” and “I Want to Belong” are co-writes with the sure-footed and talented songwriter, Kim Richey. “I’ve learned so much writing with Kim, especially about patience,” Herzig says. Cason Cooley (Derek Webb, The Normals), Aaron Johnson, David Welsh, Sandra McCracken, Ruby Amanfu and producer Gary Paczosa all lent their talent and time to the album as well.

The patience surely paid off. Each song on Apple Tree comes wrapped with a silk bow on top, and each one will leave you with a smile (rather than wondering if your aunt still has the receipt…).
