Facing the Falling Sky

by Kathie Touin

DJ Steve Conway says: "It's truly brilliant. It's like a late-night conversation with an old friend in a remote windswept house." Shifting moods and shimmering textures frame songs about finding courage when it feels as though the sky is falling in.

Album Notes
DJ Steve Conway says: "It's truly brilliant. It's like a late-night conversation with an old friend in a remote windswept house."

Kathie Touin is a singer/songwriter from California who lives in Scotland's Orkney Islands. The title reflects the courage Kathie found in facing up to illness and loss during the making of the album, even when it seemed as though the sky was falling in.

The 15-track album features 13 of Kathie's songs, including the single Waiting For The Silence, plus two instrumentals which bookend the collection.

This is Kathie's fifth album, and the third of her own songs. During the recording she experimented with sound, for the first time using samples, loops and her own ambient recordings. There are also appearances by a theremin, a Stylophone and even a kazoo.

Other songs on the album include: Selkie Of Skaill Bay, Kathie's own take on an Orkney myth of seals adopting human form; The Aftermath, about the loss of her closest musical friend; Between Heaven And The Sky, with a string trio; and The Stirring Of Ghosts, featuring guitarist Arron Storey.

Facing The Falling Sky was produced, recorded and mixed by Kathie Touin at her own Starling Recording Studio in Orkney.
