"Room" marks the return to Katey's first love: music. Born into a show business family, Katey began singing at the age of 5. In the `70s she was in a band called "The Group With No Name". She has also worked with Bob Dylan, Etta James, Tanya Tucker, and Gene Simmons and performed with Bette Midler as one of the "Harlettes".
"Room" is a combination of originals and classics including "Feel a Whole Lot Better" and "(For the Love of) Money".
"This CD began during a transitional time in my life.", Katey said. "I phoned my friend, Bob (Thiele), and we began in one room to put it together. We picked songs that gave voice to where I was. I wrote a few and borrowed a few and together they built this room."
The first single will be "Daddy's Girl", a touching song about the long-lasting relationship between a daughter and her father. Katey debuted the song she wrote on the March 2, 2004 episode of "8 Simple Rules...".
"Room" was produced by Bob Thiele (Bonnie Raitt/The Forest Rangers) and mixed by Ray Kennedy (Twangtrust/Steve Earle). Ivan Neville, Don Was and Shane Fontayne make appearances throughout the disc.
Katey Sagal, the star of such shows as "Sons of Anarchy", "Futurama", "Married...With Children" released "Room" on June 1, 2004. "Room" was the first record for Katey since her 1994 debut, "Well".
