Progressive acoustic folk music - intelligent and refreshingly free of cliche and self-indulgent introspection.

Kathy's songs have been described as paintings; imagery and characters abound in her lyrics, and they have been known to inspire people to action - quit their job, rescue a stray dog, end a relationship.

As a child, she moved every couple years with her family...since then, her entire life has been one long nomadic odyssey. Not great for putting down roots, but perfect for cultivating the sense of wonder and the powers of observation that make her a such an effective storyteller.

Kathy has released 3 critically acclaimed CDs that feature her pop-tinged-alterna-folk-bluegrassy-hip-hop sound, and she has been a finalist or a winner in many major songwriting competitions: Kerrville New Folk, Telluride Troubadour, Mountain Stage, Suwannee Springfest and others.

She is the Director of Camp Summersong (Nashville’s songwriting camp for kids), and travels the country performing and teaching songwriting workshops for kids and adults.

In Nashville, she is well-known for her 16-year stint as host of the city’s most innovative weekly songwriter gathering at Wilhagans on Sunday nights.
