ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
There is richness in simplicity.

In this live album recorded at the historic Urban Grace church in downtown Tacoma, WA (USA), Katie takes on the role of a vocal storyteller. Her interpretations of music from varied genres - sacred, folk, and operatic works - are rooted in the context of the time and place the songs were written and all that music encompasses. These simple live performances stem from history, tradition, the written word, and the true depths of human emotion.

The sacred songs tell the compelling story of God’s incredible love of humankind, sung with sincerity.

The operatic arias showcase Katie’s clear, agile soprano, and duets with two of the Puget Sound's most sought-after operatic performers show her versatility as a singing actress.

Finally, the explorations of folk music – literally “the people’s music” in Swedish – stem from oral tradition, passed down from one generation to the next. Their stories of history, myth, morality, and love of the land give a unique window into the past and the deeply-rooted values of a culture. With a vocal clarity and haunting quality, Katie’s interpretations of folk songs are informed by this rich background and colored by her own creative perspective.
