ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kaia Fowler’s music is a cross-blend of folk, blues, rock and Americana. Through supple, strong vocals and guitar work that ranges from delicate finger style to rhythmic strumming, Kaia shares songs that explore life’s longings, struggles and celebrations. Rooted in nature, Kaia’s songs resonate with strength and vulnerability, seeking to bring light even when approaching some of the darkest moments in life.

Performing at folk clubs, house concerts and venues that include the Cafe’ Carpe in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin and Froth House in Madison, Kaia shares originals and select covers that include songs by John Prine, Patty Griffin, Tracy Chapman, Natalie Merchant and Susan Tedeschi. Kaia’s songwriting has been compared to Joni Mitchell’s for its lyrical metaphors, rich melodies and creative harmonies.

Kaia released her first album, Seams of My Heart in 2010. With Kaia on guitar and vocals, the album also features Randy Sabien on violin and mandolin, Paul Bast on dobro, Sam Steffke on piano, and Jeremy Reutebuch on percussion. From the Americana Gazette album review: “Each song is very well written, with a true authenticity of life. You can picture yourself or someone you know in each story line.” He continues, “Fowler is a tremendous lyricist. Her lyrics paint pictures and her musical notes add the color…” (Aug.-Sept. 2010 issue)

Following the release of Seams of My Heart, Kaia was invited to play her song “Who Are You?” as a guest at Michelle Shocked’s concert at the High Noon Saloon in Madison, Wisconsin. Singles from the debut album received airplay on Women of Substance online radio.

The new EP album, All The Way, was released October 3, 2015 to benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, in memory of Kaia’s husband who died of pancreatic cancer at the age of 44 in 2013. With four original songs written for her husband and reflecting their experiences together falling in love, learning of his cancer and then coping with her loss, the album offers comfort and hope to others going through similar challenges. The album artwork features photos by her husband who was a professional art photographer and videographer.

From Kaia's successful Kickstarter campaign notes about the album:
The four songs on the album include "Feel So Much" written early in my relationship with my husband when I felt the full awareness of how wonderful our love was, how wonderful to be living my life with my soulmate as a partner! "I feel so much," he whispered to me once when we embraced, and a song was born. The album also features two songs written the day after we learned that his cancer had returned and was stage IV. Those songs, "All the Way" and "Stay With Me," reflect the knowledge that he had only months to live. They reveal my longing to be in the moment and how difficult it can be to "dance and sing when a storm is blowing hard on you." The final song, "Where the Water Meets the Land" explores what it means to be alive and how I want to live my life. It was written four months after he died. He had told me that he took strength from places where the water meets the land. I was in a dark place and realized that I wanted to capture that strength in a song. Many of the lyrics for that song draw from the teachings of people much wiser than I am, collected over the years in a journal of inspiring quotations.

I invite you to listen to the sample tracks and consider supporting this benefit album with your purchase today. At least $4 of each CD sale and $7 of each digital album download is donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
