Recipient of the 2015 West Coast Country Music Association Awards for Traditional Country Album of the Year and Song of the Year for “Lightning Love”
In the summer of 2014, as production on Kathryn Cloward’s debut music album Free to Fly paused, she picked up her guitar and started writing more songs. Realizing that her intention and purpose were aligned when she voiced healing messages of love, Kathryn unearthed even more to share in A Soft Place to Fall. Through this revealing collection of songs, you are invited into the vulnerable world of a woman’s growing pains that follow emancipation. From soulful cries of her heart to an empowering anthem of transformation, these songs dive into a deeper authentic space between love and heartache, hope and healing—a space others may find themselves in from time to time, a space of lessons. Kathryn’s second album reflects a woman who is now a fully free wanderer, living with her heart exposed, seeking safety and sanctuary in A Soft Place to Fall. More here.

I am thankful to be featured in the February issue of BackStage360. It’s an extra special honor for me personally because Orianthi is on the cover of the magazine, and she is one of my favorite female musicians/artists. She continues to inspire me to stretch my music and my artistry in new ways.
I invite you to watch the on-camera interview (below) and find out a bit more about me and my “why” for my music and my books.
