KATHLEEN is an artist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Steamboat Springs, CO, currently based in Los Angeles. Her self-titled artist project is a fresh and inventive amalgam of genres steeped in the imagery of the natural world and beyond. In addition to her forward-facing pursuits, Kathleen is an avid writer and collaborator with others, specializing in imaginative and pleasantly unpredictable melodies, lyrics and topline. Following that strong sense of voice recently led her to vocal arrangement and background vocal credits on Olivia Rodrigo’s GRAMMY-winning album Sour and a cut on Kesha’s new album Gag Order. She’s also got cuts with Medasin and Baker Grace, including Grace’s biggest single “Wrong Kind of People.” Kathleen’s warm and inquisitive nature with a background in poetry and creative writing, allows her to shine. Her main influences vary, but generally orbit around John Prine, Björk, Fiona Apple, Nina Simone, Fink, Laurie Anderson, Minnie Riperton, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and Kate Bush.
