Katie Tall's Solo Piano Album

$1,811

47

This debut album is a culmination of music and lyrics written and developed since 2008. The music is inspired by Katie's favorite songwriters such as Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen, jazz pianist composer Thelonious Monk, and the piano compositions of Ravel, Stravisky, and Chopin. The purpose of the album is to paint an auditory landscape for the listener to explore emotions they may often abandon in daily life and routine.

Risks and challenges

Recording this album is a time and logistic-intensive effort.

The pressure of limited recording time requires intense focus and preparation to get the best takes in two ten-hour sessions.

Copywriting, development of packaging, and album artwork also must be factored into the process.
