Katie von Schleicher is a songwriter, musician, engineer, and producer living in Brooklyn.

"A Little Touch of Schleicher in the Night is an excellent attestation to von Schleicher and collaborator Sam Griffin Owens’ direction: Every song sounds textured and multifaceted, with steady builds and decrescendos that juxtapose joy with the comedown. The arrangements—a menagerie of saxophones, clarinets, and violins with the jaunty bounce of guitar chords—walk a tightrope between the schmaltz of a Herb Alpert record and the evocative swell of Brenda Lee’s 'Emotions.' It succeeds as party music, the kind that starts jubilantly and lapses into wine-drunk silence." —Pitchfork

“The Brooklyn-based artist brings to mind highbrow Seventies pop like Nilsson’s with her mix of easeful melodies, rich orchestrations, and sharp, offhanded irony... Even a little touch of Von Schleicher is enough to get your day moving.” —Rolling Stone

“a songwriter and producer who packs big ideas into lively, beautiful songs” —NPR

“[A Little Touch of Schleicher in the Night] dives even further into the ethereal ’70s, musically recalling everything from Nilsson to Minnie Riperton to Melanie, but it’s [Katie von Schleicher's] insightful lyrics — witty without pulling you out of the moment — that make this all such a wonderful album.” —Brooklyn Vegan

“the album taps into an intoxicating late night mood, rife with beautifully composed songs that come to life with eclectic instrumentation” —Treble


Produced alongside Sam Owens (Sam Evian), A Little Touch of Schleicher in the Night was recorded with a bunch of poker buddies the two accumulated during the pandemic. Lyrically wry and classically lush with strings and horns, it’s a songwriter album that nuzzles up to the Arthur Russell and Kirsty MacColl LPs in one's record collection. In narrowing the gap between her personality and her songwriting, von Schleicher has made her most untroubled album. Out now on digital and vinyl via Sipsman.
