OUT NOW on One Little Indian Records.
Kathryn has a voice like no other.
I had the pleasure of being in her band for the recording and touring of 'The Quickening' - recorded in the wilds of North Wales and toured around the UK in 2010.
The BBC's Jude Rogers has described Kathryn as "A soft soul with hard edges who reminds us that quietness can resound so loudly".
Throughout the Quickening Tour, while going through the daily routines of the road, my ears began imagining how her unique voice might combine with the gentle subtlety of the vibraphone within the beautiful, harmonically rich world of the Great American Songbook.
Originally conceived of as a duo, this vibes and voice CD / touring project has grown to incorporate additional instrumentalists including the glorious trumpet of Martin Shaw and is now available on One Little Indian records.
