Dreamtime

by Katrina Kadoski

Katrina's vocal style is so heartfelt that it literally tugs at something deep inside one’s being. That, in combination with the propensity to impart warmth and understanding in reflecting the human condition through lyrical content... A must listen!

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Katrina Kadoski’s new release, Dreamtime, was recorded in Baltimore, Maryland and
produced by Scott Smith at The Wood and Stone Room. The songs are indeed dreamlike,
and at once melancholy and hopeful, adorned with electric (Scott Smith) and acoustic
guitars (Katrina Kadoski), cello (Jen Smith) and stunning harmonies in support of Katrina’s
disarmingly pure and honest voice. Katrina met the Smiths ten years ago at a songwriting
retreat in Alaska and recently they regrouped to record 'Dreamtime', and traveled to
perform together from Tono to Vancouver. It is a long and far odyssey from Alaska, to
Baltimore, to Vancouver Island, and over ten years in the making. With the release of
'Dreamtime', Katrina Kadoski hopes to open hearts and console with haunting songs of
comfort. “This album is like a hot chocolate on a stormy night. It is rich, dark and warm. It
encompasses both the storm and the sweetness", says Kadoski. Of course, it is also about a
journey, both personal and linear.
Originally from Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada, Katrina was awarded music scholarships
from a young age. Shaping her performance craft with plays, choirs, workshops, music
programs, and competitions, she has also become a skilled guitarist and songwriter. Her
versatile and powerful voice has been developed over years of classical and contemporary
vocal training and recording.
One of her biggest transitions as a person and a musician came in 2007 when she spent
three years in an o-the-grid historical homestead /garden located 33 miles North of
Tono. "I had all this time in complete wilderness to dedicate to my craft and listen to my
soul... and that changes you," she says. While there Kadoski created her most recognized
show, "Cougar Annie Tales”, a critically acclaimed one-woman musical drama, telling the
wild life story of the trapper-pioneer-settler woman who homesteaded in the rainforest
bog. It won Pick of the Fringe, was a Victoria Critics Choice nominee for “Best New Play.”
Katrina has played to many sold-out audiences around British Columbia.“Music has been a
huge part of my life, I grew up listening to my grandmother sing, play ddle, and accordion,
and my father play guitar. I‘ve studied music, written songs, and been on stage since I
was a kid.” She knows who she is and her unique style of indie-folk-pop displays her
practiced voice yet reveals a raw edge to engage listeners and guide them through the
threshold of healing. "Some of the songs are very personal reections of people I am in
close relationships with. Others are about my inspirations from digging into the cave of the
heart and imagining the boundlessness of the soul", she says.
In the last few years Katrina has created and performed live music in conjunction with new
works of theatre. Companies include William Head On Stage (W.H.O.S. - a theatre company
inside a men's prison). Here; A Captive Odyssey(2015), Fractured Fables(2014), and Time
Waits for No-one; A Prison Play (2013). She also collaborated with Kate Rubin's advanced
teen drama school for the productions Metamorphosis (2013), Photophobia(2014), and I
have seen Beautiful Jim Key – by Janet Munsil. She currently performs and records music
with her band The Edgedwellers and is writing a new multi-media musical fantasy play
called The Shadow Fog.

It is common for a majority of newly discovered singer/songwriters to soon slip into the collective unconscious as so many of them appear to mimic one another in their songwriting sentiments, sound alike vocally, or are caught in the vortex of commercialization. It is extraordinary, therefore, to encounter a vocal style that is so heartfelt that it literally tugs at something deep inside one’s being. That, in combination with the propensity to impart warmth and understanding in reflecting the human condition through lyrical content is, indeed, a rare combination. Yet, such is the work of Katrina Kadoski, imparted in her new extended-play CD, Dreamtime. - Phil N Rossner: Journalist, Musician, Promoter


"In her new EP Dreamtime, Katrina Kadoski's voice whispers and soars seamlessly...her songs here are stronger than ever. '... This record feels very Canadian, and very heartfelt. It is filled with hints of bigger stories, making you want to return to visit them again, to dig a little deeper and discover a little more each time...- James Kasper, 101.7 CIVL Singer-songwriter & Founder, Mighty Speck Records/Vancouver Island Music Awards
