Katie Toupin has spent the last three years undergoing a virtualmetamorphosis, emerging from the relative security of, “safety in numbers,” as co-founder and one-of-four members of the popular indie folk band, Houndmouth andco-writer on the Triple A #1, “Sedona,”, to spread her own wings as a solowriter/artist known simply as, Katie Toupin. Her solo debut album,“MagneticMoves,”releasedon June14threvealsa more personal and undeniably vulnerableside..Magnetic Moves takes its title from itsspellbinding opening track, a songthat’s quietly defiant in its bending of reality. “It’s about being bold and being brave,and using your magnetism to create the world you want to live in,” says the L.A.-based singer/songwriter. “The whole album came from a place of wanting to becompletely direct, in a way I never felt I could before. I think it’s important to letyourself show your heart like that.”In the spirit of self-reliance, Toupin took the reins in producing MagneticMoves, her first full-lengthsince leaving acclaimed alt-country band Houndmouth in2016. Although she’d originally cut several songs with other producers, animpromptu recording session during a stop in Austin on her 2018 house tourinspired her to strike out on her own. “Every timeI’d tried working with otherpeople, it never turned out in a way that felt right to me,” she says. “And then when Ifinally tried producing by myself, it felt so easy—I realized I knew exactly what Iwanted everything to sound like; I just needed the confidence to actually do it."
