Katie and the Colonel is the second single released as part of Justin Standley’s “12 Months—12 Songs” Music as Medicine program.
It is an enchanting song about a young girl’s special friendship with a mischievous woolly ram. Written for a local Bundaberg girl, Katie, the song is laden with special meanings and optimism.
Golden Guitar and ARIA winning producer, Matt Fell, who is currently starring on ABC’s heart-warming new series The Recording Studio, has created an intimate feel on this stripped back track that allows Justin’s melodic voice and story-telling ability to shine. As Justin sings, Katie is “living proof that love is colour blind” and that love can heal the greatest wounds.
