One Breath: transcendence through song
My third album, One Breath, features songs about transcendence, about the joy of loving others well, about living fully, and about continuing on living after the death of a loved one. It even has a song that features "June bugs tapping on the screen" and another inspired by a trip to Nebraska to see the 2017 solar eclipse.
Songs on this album affirm love, hope, beauty, and comfort in a world so saturated with hatred, suffering, and despair. One Breath reflects on the passage of time, how we change, and how we stay the same, all sung and played from the heart with a love for all and a persistent hope for our future.
Currently in the recording stage, this album will be mixed with engineer Steve Yates in Morton Grove, Illinois. Yates has engineered records for Tricia Alexander for years and I love the beautiful sound her albums deliver. The songs sound great so far and I have nearly finished recording the main guitar and vocal parts. Joe Jencks recorded harmony vocals and bouzouki for "Take Shelter in Love" and other musicians will be laying down lead guitar, percussion, harmonica (for Ridin' Along!) and bass in the coming weeks.
I can’t wait to get this record your hands (or on your streaming device as the case may be)! I am so incredibly thankful to all of the musicians for their interest in working with me on this project and to everyone who has already contributed to making it happen.
Musicians need to be paid, as do the engineers and then there is physical pressing and distribution costs. This all adds up fast. I will truly appreciate your support so I can finish the album and get it into the world. Thanks to those who have given so generously already!
You know who you are. Your enthusiasm for my music makes my heart sing. Thank you to all who support me in so many ways every day.
Donate $25 or more and provide your mailing address and I will send you a signed CD when it is released. Looking for more preorder options or incentives for project backers, see my Square Trade store. Who is Kaia Fowler?
Listeners say Kaia Fowler’s music “speaks to the soul.” Through song, Kaia evokes transcendence and comfort even when witnessing difficult topics like personal loss, social inequality, and our fragile Earth. Her music explores challenges, embraces resilience, and celebrates the joy of being alive, even in times of sorrow. A versatile guitarist with a wonderful vocal range, Kaia’s sound ranges from vibrantly melodic tunes reminiscent of artists like Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez to blues and roots rock songs with rhythmic strumming and powerful vocals. In concert, Kaia’s warm energy and authenticity invite listeners to transcend the day-to-day in a way that only live music can. Learn more at kaiafowler.com
