Kathryn Cloward

Award-winning singer-songwriter Kathryn Cloward is bringing forth a fresh perspective of lyrical storytelling that is being well received by people of all ages across multiple musical genres. Kathryn connects with audiences through her natural vulnerability, authentic transparency, and childlike joyfulness. A prolific and untethered songwriter, Kathryn’s songs reveal the passionate woman she is and the journey of transformation and unconditional love she’s been on. Through her relatable lyrics and soulful melodies with engaging musical arrangements, Kathryn invites others to join her through the pathways of life.

“So many people are thirsty for understanding and authenticity. That is what my music provides for them. I know how it feels to grow through life changes. I bring those feelings and experiences to light through my songs,” Cloward said. “While writing is a healing and empowering process for me on a personal level, I share because I am passionate about helping others gain understanding for themselves so they too will feel free to joyfully shine their natural light of love. ”

Kathryn launched into the music industry in 2015 with a double CD release of Free to Fly and A Soft Place to Fall, fulfilling her lifelong dream of writing and sharing original songs with others. Having fully opened up to being in the flow of lyrically articulating her full spectrum of life experiences that many people have encountered themselves, Kathryn’s second double CD release of Ripple Love and Secret Keeper (2017) are collections of songs that connect together to help others feel less alone as they move from wounded through healing to shining.

Kathryn enjoys performing on stage with her full band and in intimate acoustic shows. Some of Kathryn’s featured shows include opening for Nashville Unplugged (Las Vegas, NV), headlining at the acclaimed Belly Up (Solana Beach, CA) performing at the legendary Troubadour (West Hollywood, CA), and rocking out at her hometown’s San Diego County Fair.

With a heart for writing and sharing purposeful messages, Kathryn was honored to align with Intrepid Theatre Company to write and perform an original song for its Exiled Voices: Refugee Art Experience. “My Name is Divine (Jina langu ni Diviné),” about an 18-year-old high school student from Mozambique, is featured in the company’s touring show. Kathryn was also honored with an invitation by Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary to write and perform a new theme song for its annual Celebration of Champions® event. “We Are Champions” is about courage and hope, and the light of love that shines with every child journeying through cancer.

Kathryn has earned multiple awards for her songwriting and performing. She earned two Best Song Awards at the 2017 Indie Music Channel Awards, was recognized as Best Americana Artist by Indie Music Channel’s 2016 Radio Music Awards, and received four 2015 West Coast Country Music Association awards. She is also the creator, author, and songwriter of the award-winning Kathryn the Grape® Affirmation Series of positive books and music. Her series was recently honored with five 2017 Family Choice Awards.
