New album out!
Kathy and musician/producer Steve Dawson have finished her new album, When You’re Dead, and it was officially released Tuesday, March 19, with a sold-out release show on Friday, March 22 at Chicago’s Hideout.
Listen to several of the completed tracks and buy the album here.
The theme of this album came about because Kathy spent a lot of quiet time writing on her guitar in Union Ridge Cemetery near her house in Chicago. Three tracks on the album came directly from these cemetery writing sessions. The aptly-named title track, however, was written by Kathy’s songwriter friend, Tom Recht. Many thanks to talented illustrator Carrie Gowran, who created the beautiful artwork for the CD cover, as well as to noted photographer Paul Natkin, who shot photos of Kathy and Steve in Union Ridge cemetery.
Reviews are beginning to come in for the new album. Read them on this page.
