Albums by Kathryn Cloward
A warm-hearted, feel-good 12-song collection illuminating messages of love, peace, and compassionate understanding, Ripple Love is an album that inspires us all to courageously experience life and love uncontained. Kathryn Cloward honors timeless connection with “Forever,” “Dorothy,” and “I Held His Hand.” She’s vulnerably confessional in “Honesty” and “You Inspire Me,” and optimistically hopeful in “Dark Cloud” and “Garden of Love.” The title track, “Ripple Love,” is an impactful song inspiring personal transformation to create a positive ripple effect of change throughout our planet as we choose to journey “The Purposeful Path” of our lives.
In a time when many people are thirsty for understanding, Kathryn Cloward pours out her heart and dives deeper into revealing her truth in Secret Keeper — to help others know they are not alone. This 11-song collection will resonate with anyone who is braving love, moving beyond deception, and courageously healing emotional wounds with the hope of cultivating authentic sustainable personal freedom. Cloward articulates the internal struggle of shifting through the layers of romantic endings in “Wild Horse,” “Easy For You,” and “It Is Time,” and focuses on the empowerment of rising strong in “Just Friends,” “Ace of Spades,” and “Run.” She shares the full spectrum of her personal transformation in the title track, “Secret Keeper,” a song written for her own healing and shared to support the healing of others. The album ends appropriately with the acceptance of nurturing love in “New Moon.”
Free to Fly
An intimate body of work about liberation and individuality, over two years in the making, Free to Fly is Kathryn Cloward’s debut music album. Transparent, lyrical storytelling tracks her journey toward release and high-flying perspective. Woman. Wayfarer. Kathryn catalogues uplifting insights in both gentle, expressive ballads in “Love’s Worth Fighting For” and “Unconditionally,” and empowering vibrancy with “Free to Fly” and “Phoenix Rising,” all of which charts the transformational estuaries along “The Healing Road” that may of us experience when we choose to allow ourselves to untether and become fully free. Melodies take flight in Kathryn’s vulnerable, earnest vocal delivery, and lush musical arrangements soar. Coming out from behind her illustrated likeness in her children’s franchise, Kathryn the Grape, Kathryn reveals the emboldened woman that she is, as well as her life’s dream to share her heart through songs. Explore this library of warm, hard-won anthems about empowerment, transformation, and unconditional love.
A Soft Place to Fall
2015 West Coast CMA Album of the Year
2015 West Coast CMA Song of the Year – “Lightning Love”
2017 IMC Americana Song of the Year – “I Will Be Going”
As production on Kathryn Cloward’s Free to Fly debut music album took a brief pause, 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. With soulful cries of her heart in “500 Miles” and “Miss You,” an empowering anthem of transformation in “Being Me,” and songs that reveal the vulnerability of love in “A Soft Place to Fall,” “Let Me Love You,” and “Lightning Love” 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.

Singles by Kathryn Cloward
“Heroes” for MPS
“Heroes” is a song for everyone. We are all heroes. Each of us experiences challenges in life and this song honors the courage, hope, and love that carries us through. Kathryn Cloward and friends wrote “Heroes” to help shine a light of awareness and support on children and adults living with MPS and related rare diseases that have no cure…yet. The youth version of this song features 14-year old Michelle Hopkins (who has MPS1) as lead singer with a choir of youth backup singers. Joyfully produced and released with loving community support, proceeds from every digital music download or stream/play benefits the National MPS Society. Help us help others by downloading and streaming “Heroes,” and sharing it with others.
“Heroes” for MPS
To help ripple this message out to more and more people, Kathryn decided to release the song on two platforms, Kathryn the Grape (as above) and Kathryn Cloward. Proceeds from both versions of the song benefits the National MPS Society. Help us help others by downloading and streaming “Heroes,” and sharing it with others.
“Ripple Love” for Mental Health
Kathryn Cloward re-recorded this version of “Ripple Love” with her band in March 2018 to participate in the NPR Tiny Desk contest in honor of her bandmate and co-writer of the song, Barry Rosenbaum, who died in September 2016. Barry’s passing is a subject Kathryn seldom talks about because of the tremendous grief she carried. But, she is now speaking up and using the song she and Barry wrote together to help others who are experiencing mental health challenges and holding it all inside.
Champions for Childhood Cancer
Kathryn Cloward wrote “We Are Champions” in support of children fighting cancer and their families in honor of Samara, a vibrant little girl who is a character in her Kathryn the Grape series. The song debuted at Rady Children’s Hospital’s 2017 Celebration of Champions event and continues to help shine a light on courageous champions braving cancer and to honor the legacy of champions who are no longer with us. With a heart-centered mission to ripple love, compassion, and unity throughout the world while helping others every step of the way, proceeds from every digital download and stream of “We Are Champions” help support champions like Samara, the little girl featured in the song’s photo. We hope you will join us in supporting children who are fighting cancer and their families — one song at time.
