About Kathryn Cloward
Award-winning Americana singer-songwriter Kathryn Cloward is bringing forth a fresh perspective of lyrical storytelling that’s well received by people of all ages across multiple musical genres. She connects with audiences through her authentic transparency, childlike joyfulness, and magnetic stage presence. A prolific and untethered songwriter, Kathryn’s relatable lyrics and soulful melodies with engaging musical arrangements reveal the passionate woman she is and the journey of transformation she’s been on.
“I know how it feels to shift and grow through life changes. I share those experiences in my music,” Cloward said. “Often we just need to know that someone else understands what we are going through and resonates with how we are feeling. My songs create a bridge of understanding for people to know they are not alone. While writing is a healing and empowering process for me on a personal level, I share to help others empower themselves to heal their wounds, be courageous in the pursuit of their dreams and goals, and joyfully shine their natural light of love every day.”
Kathryn launched into the music industry in 2015 with a double CD release of Free to Fly and A Soft Place to Fall, fulfilling her lifelong dream of writing and sharing original songs. Having fully opened up to lyrically articulate a full spectrum of life experiences, Kathryn’s second double CD release of Ripple Love and Secret Keeper (2017) features songs with deep meanings that help empower others to heal, grow, and shine.
