Pre-order my next album! 

I've made albums before. This one will be a little bit different. It won't just be me at the piano singing my heart out on my original music! But don't worry! There will be my trademark vocal/piano solo sound on several of the songs throughout the album.We've got some of the tracks almost ready to go and there will be other musicians on some of the songs. Rob Kohler will play the bass on several tracks and Javier Vergara will play the saxophone on a couple of the tracks. I also have a few guest pianists that I'm going to use on a song or two! I've got a couple of tunes that Rob wrote and I'm also planning to have some jazz standards as bonus tracks! My brother Rob will again be my engineer. 

I need the money to:

1. Finish the recording - Get the last tracks recorded and all the tracks mixed and mastered.

2. Produce the product - CD's and USB drives and Digital Downloads.

3. Pay my musicians. I'm lucky to have family and friends involved in this project, so my musician fees are low, but I'd still like to pay a little something. 

4. Live a creative life - There are fewer and fewer ways that Musicians can get paid for what they do. This is one simple way that you can support me in my creative endeavors. I will continue to create music and put it out there in a variety of ways for you to enjoy. This includes providing free content on YouTube and free downloads through my mailing list. I appreciate you! And this is a small way that you can show that you appreciate my art. 

Thank you! 

With love,

Kate

Risks and challenges

As some of you know, my brother, Rob, who is also my bassist and engineer, just had hip surgery and is currently living in Montana. In order to complete this project, we have to be in the same town for a week or so. Right now it looks like we'll both be in Culver City before the end of March, but if for some reason that isn't enough time, I'll have to travel to Montana in June and finish up the recording process then.
All the songs are written, 1,000 songs for you!
Okay, not really 1,000 songs (that's just the title of one them).
I will keep you informed!
