About the Music ~ 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 her uplifting insights in both gentle, expressive ballads and vibrant, midtempo tunes that chart the transformational estuaries along the healing road. 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.
