Kathy Yolanda Rice was born and raised in the cosmopolitan city of Huntsville, Alabama, where her passion for music and art was recognized at an early age. She studied piano at age 6 and began formal voice training at age 12. After graduating from Alabama A & M University in Music, she began a parallel career in the federal government, which led to her living and singing in New York, Texas, Arizona and California. After returning home to Huntsville, Kathy embarked on a recording project with Record Producer, Kelvin Wooten, formerly of Toni! Tony! Tone! Kelvin brings a fresh sound to Kathy's original music, as he has for other singers that he's produced, such as Jill Scott, Erykah Badu and Kelly Price. Kathy is a gifted vocalist with a unique style of her own. Fast becoming a sought after singer/songwriter, Kathy is capturing the hearts of many with her precious voice and original compositions. Her music tells real-life stories of love, faith and hope. Her debut CD, entitled, "After All These Years" is seasoned with a flavor of jazz and consists of 10 Contemporary tunes. The CD was released under the label of Paintbrush Records & Publishing. An avid traveler, Kathy finds creative renewal while visiting Europe and during vacations at her home in Tunisia, Africa, on the Mediterranean. "The Taxi" phone, one of the tracks on the CD, describes Kathy's unusual experiences while using the public phones in Tunisia. The powerful ballad, "Isn't It a Pity" describes the pain and anxiety associated with being separated from a loved one, and "Your Life" and "I've Gotta Find a Love" are sure to make you want to get up and move your feet to the beat! Some of Kathy's musical influences are Al Jarreau, Michael Franks, Steeley Dan, Quincy Jones, and Angela Bofill. Kathy has toured with her church choir throughout the Tennessee Valley, and received many standing ovations for her solo performance of Order My Steps. She honors God for the multiple talents given to her and feels blessed to be able to share them with others. Her praise is given to Him on the song entitled, He's My Friend on Track 10 of the "After All These Years" CD.

A great collection of vocals with an international flair.
A great collection of vocals with an international flair. This CD will take you from a smokey jazz cafe to dreaming of far away places. The last song is a gospel inspiration that is both uplifting and touches your soul. I recommend this CD to anyone who wants to dance to the beat or just relax and rejuvinate the soul.

Mighty fine .... mighty fine ....
I've really enjoyed this musical offering. I think Kathy's bringing something to the table that needs to be heard by all of us.
Kelvin has done nothing short of an outstanding job with bringing Kathy's songs to life. This is definitely one of those CDs you gets allot of miles out of - timeless in its appeal, great stuff for the drive home, something to tell your friends about ...mighty fine artistry. Mighty fine ....

Music you can actually Feel!
This CD deserves more than 5 stars! It is music you can actually feel. Kathy's voice has one of those distinctive voices that grabs you. Her music will take you away ...especially those moments when you need to get away and relax; so listen to it and go with it...enjoy it. Her Music is soothing and at makes you want to dance to it. I especially think that Cloak and Dagger Affair is a huge Hit, as well as Isn’t it a Pity! I would like to see Kathy write more songs like He’s My Friend! That song touched my heart!!!!
Through brilliant innovation and a truly unique approach to her music, Kathy Yolanda Rice exposes the listener to a whole new landscape of musical textures, colors, and emotions that challenge and satisfy at the same time. All art forms need artists that are willing to take chances and explore new ground, and Kathy has set a course to take us listeners back to what music is all about. I totally recommend her CD!
Her music appeals to listeners of all ages.
This is one CD you will be playing 30 years from now and it will be as fresh then as it is today.

An album that tells a Great Story!
The debut album of Kathy Yolanda Rice is a must listen for fans of Jazz and R&B. Not only did I love the music, but the consistent flow did not require me to lower or raise the volume! Every album tells a story. For me, an album tells a story that I love to hear when it is well written, well arranged and if it is my preferred type of music. An album is further enhanced if the person or group performing wrote the songs themselves. That makes it easier for the artist to place their heart into the song, drawing from the experience that led to its creation. Sure, great writers can write great songs and have them sung by others. But a more personal performance always results when an artist carries an album through the entire process. After All These Years by Kathy Yolanda Rice does just that for me! All 10 songs take me on a smooth urbane ride from beginning to end. If you like hearing the same old story, this album is not for you. But if you love a GREAT story, get After All These Years today and listen to it tonight!

Sandra Hinds

Awesome vocals. Very relaxing, bueatifully done. Talent, talent, and more talen
This CD is off the chain. This CD should be and will be part of any jazz lovers collection. The music is relaxing, soothing, and refreshing. It creates the perfect ambience for driving, romance, quiet meditation, and even escape.

Marla K. Crosby

This CD is fantastic. It is ideal listening music especially while you are driving. I could drive 1,000 miles and never realize it. I just love the music and the messages it conveys. Better than 5 stars I grant you.

Just Buy This CD! You Will Not Be Disappointed!
Kathy Yolanda Rice has an amazingly wonderful voice; it is smooth, clean, jazzy, relaxing. Listening to the title track "After All These Years" proves this to be so. Great music, great sound, great vocals (check out "He's My Friend")! The "After All These Years" CD is a must add to your Adult Contemporary collection .You can play this CD often and not grow tired of it. You can let anybody any age hear it and there will be tracks that they will like. Not only can you relax and mellow out you can get your dance on with "Your Life" and "I'm Amazed". For me there is not a "bad" song on this CD. It is in a word - Timeless! Treat yourself and get this CD!
