ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kathy Watson has rhythm - toe-stomping, finger-snapping rhythm. Indeed, her first CD has just been nominated for the Grammy entry list in three categories, Best Pop Album, Album of the Year and Best New Artist.

Watson, a 1992 graduate of Woodland Park High School, is scheduled to appear in Woodland Park from 2:15 to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Dec 10 at the Littlestar Lodge during the Holiday Home Tour.

Reached at her home in Colorado Springs, Watson offered an update on the past year and a half, a time filled with academia, studio recordings and that delicious feeling of success.

Watson is effusive about the nomination and life in general. "We've gotten great response from the album," she said.

Highlighted in three national trade music magazines, Watson, whose CD titled "Kathy Watson," was interviewed on several Colorado television and radio stations. In September she was invited to perform at the Cutting Edge Music Conference in New Orleans.

In addition to her recording success, she recently earned a master's degree in music fromthe University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana.

Watson's latest venture, a CD to be released in January, combines classical music and jazz.

"That project came about out of my long history of singing classical music and my love affair with that genre," Watson said. "My roots are really in gospel music and musical theater and jazz, so we combined the two."

Watson, raised in Woodland Park, describes herself as a product of Morton Dickson's music program at the high school.

"I also worked closely with the late Marta Dickson in solo and ensemble competitions, and in the musical theater program every year," she said.

Watson attributes her professional achievement to Robert Case, owner of New pants Publishing in Colorado Springs.

"Rob gave me my first break," Watson said. "He has created all these opportunities for me. It was pure luck that he opened my demo package."

In an industry tough to break into, Watson credits Case for his vision and flexibility.

"Rob has a firm belief in artist development, which is something the record industry is missing today," she said. "From being a young and brand new songwriter, he's given me the opportunities I need to become better and grow in my craft."

Watson wrote all but one of the songs on the CD which is available at this site.

When she isn't recording or writing songs, she and her husband, Jeff, direct and organize the Air Force Academy Chamber Ensemble. She also performs in area churches and can be contacted through New Pants Publishing at 632-0227.
