Like many successful artists before her, Katie Herzig's musical journey began in Colorado. She grew up in Fort Collins and cut her teeth musically at the University of Colorado-Boulder, eventually forming the band Newcomer's Home.

When that group disbanded, Herzig launched a notable solo singer-songwriter career. Since then, her work has garnered a Grammy nomination and appearances in programs like "Bones" and HBO's "Bored to Death."

During a recent return to her home state, Herzig dropped by our CPR Performance Studio to play a few numbers. She chatted with Keefer Fulgham about the breakup of Newcomer's Home, taking assignments for television music, and the heavy themes of her latest album "Walk Through Walls."
