Gilli Moon of Songsalive! states, “(Katie's) voice is almost like Sarah McLaughlin, and a touch of Feist, on a bed of edgy rockin’ grooves, country feels and memorable melodies.”
Radioindy calls Katie, “a folk-pop tour de force to rival those of similar singer-songwriters whose brands are veritable household names. Like Sheryl Crow, Jewel, Fiona Apple or Ani DiFranco, Garibaldi is a soulful singer/songwriter of real – if largely unheralded - merits.”
