14 years after the song begun, the story of Noah is finally ready to be told!

‘Noah’ will be the first single from Then. It is a song about a cruel but beautiful boy who uses his smile to get what he wants, and who has most people fooled because they can’t see behind his mask.

The video for ‘Noah’ is an exploration of who we are under our own “masks”. The video (featuring a selection of 32 friends, family and brave strangers) captures the transformation that takes place when we put on or remove our “masks”: who we think we are, who we wish we were and perhaps who we want others to think we could be.

Produced by Scott Currie (Gypsy Sol, Emily Haines) and Tom McKay (Joydrop, Sate, Nightcrawlers), “THEN” features the talents of some of Canada’s finest musicians: Maury LaFoy (Jann Arden, Bare Naked Ladies), Dafydd Hughes (Feist, Jacksoul), Duncan Coutts (Our Lady Peace), Paul Mathew (Matt Barber, Hidden Cameras), Joshua Van Tassel (Doug Paisley, Amelia Curran), Jody Brummell (Shanks, Bella Clava), Louis Simao (Nelly Furtado, Mary Margaret O’Hara) Kevin Neal (Ron Hawkins, The Do Good Assassins) and many more. The record features songs that have been slowly recorded over the last 13-14 years, but have never been released until now.

 

After 6 long months of waiting, on May 15, 2017, the video for “Noah” Will finally ready to be released to the digital world!

Happy to announce I released my first music video ever into the world today! Watch it here and please like it and share it if you do! I’ve been so overwhelmed with the support so far! I posted it this morning, then went to work, and now I’m finally home and it’s had nearly 600 views in one day! I’m so humbled and happy. Plus, I gave DOLLY PARTON my CD tonight at her concert! Well, I gave it to her security guy, who very kindly actually took it back stage for me! Dolly was MIND BLOWING, btw, so all in all it’s been a pretty stellar day! Thank you, life!

And thank you to all those who helped make this video happen.

Today is the day I have been waiting for, for 15 years. The first of my 2 new EPs, “Now” is available, officially. I can’t believe it has been that long since I released a real album. It is a terrifying and wonderful feeling, and I have no idea what will happen now, but I am going to work my hardest at getting this little album heard. PLEASE SHARE, and help me get my music into the hands of as many people as possible.

Thank you so much to those who made this happen: Tom, Steve, Vic, Dan— you four deserve an award for the amount of work you did, and for what you had to put up with! I love you all, forever! Mom, Dad, Fox, Poppa— thank you for supporting me both financially and spiritually, since I first discovered that big wooden noise maker in the living room, and for putting it there in the first place. To the fine musicians and who appear on this album— Steve, Tom, Jody, Caitlyn, Louis, B (more…)

Today’s the day! The first half of my 2-EP collection Now/Then has hit iTunes and is available for pre-order HERE. Having never been in this position before (of releasing something online, into the world!) I can tell you it’s a CRAZY awesome feeling! And the response so far has been overwhelming! Thank you to everyone who went right over to iTunes and grabbed a copy, and also to those who shared the news on social media! This little indie record needs all the grass-roots help it can get, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Just to explain what I’ve been up to, “Now” is the first of 2-EPs of that will be released consecutively, on Aug 22 and Sept 10. A physical CD will be available sooner, if you just can’t wait– contact me and I can figure out how to get it to you.

“Now” contains 6 new songs, and represent the last year or so of songwriting and recording. It will be available on CD and digital platforms, and in the fall, on vinyl. “Then” is a follow up of 5 older, but never recorded songs, that will be released as a companion collection online and on vinyl. Together, they are a collection of 11 tunes, called “Now/Then”.

ALBUM UPDATE!

It’s almost here! I am just finishing up the last couple sessions for this long, long-awaited EP, which I have decided to call “Now” even though I told you it was going to be called “Meanwhile” (sorry). I changed the name is because I was searching for a title that described the interesting dual-state I am in, musically. As many of you know, I have been recording songs over the past many years. Quite a few songs have been in progress for nearly a decade, but never quite finished or released. Meanwhile, I have all these new songs that needed to be heard, so I took a chance and embarked on a new recording project, while continuing to finish the other batch, slowly but surely.

The result is looking like 2 EPs, released consecutively, “Now” and “Then”.

I like the idea of having a common thread run through both EPs. You get an honest representation of the path I travelled to the music I am making today. I hope they will fit together like a good story, told in past and present tense.

You can get a sneak peek of the tunes on “Now” by clicking the music bar at the top of this page, or by going to the Videos page. The first single will be “Lady Cop Seeks Revenge For A Family Done Wrong” which is currently entered in the CBC Searchlight contest. I would love to get to the next round in the contest, because it will mean national exposure. Please consider voting for me here. You can vote once a day, every day. Please share, too. And thank you SO MUCH to those of you who are already voting and sharing.

I will be releasing “Lady Cop” very soon on all digital platforms, as well as available in CD, USB and VINYL format. What??! Vinyl??! Audiophiles, look out!

I look forward to sharing more details about the release dates and the release party. Please, stay with me, as I near the finish line!

Much love,

Katey
