"The Seattle-based artist writes with a wisdom beyond her years, taking us
on a journey through a set of warm folk expressions." - Performing Songwriter
Magazine, November 2002
"A Seattle singer/songwriter with a voice of honey and an easy laugh."
- Seattle Post-Intelligencer, February 2002
With an effortless honey voice, the stage presence and soul of a Broadway diva,
and a knack for playful musical intimacy, Kathryn Mostow has boldly emerged
as a powerful contemporary songwriter and performer. Her music and songs are
mini - celebrations of human desire and the struggle to remain connected, compassionate,
humorous and tender despite the cynicism of our time.
Singing soprano at the age of nine, Mostow joined and toured nationally and
internationally with the Colorado Children's Chorale, and later went on to perform
with the popular New England a cappella singing group, the Chattertocks. It
wasn't until 1997, after picking up a friend's guitar, that she discovered her
passion and love for playing and composing songs of her own. Since that day,
she has artfully combined her extraordinary voice, her subtle, ambient guitar
style, and lyrical wisdom, and has continued to grow and develop along with
her loyal fans to become one of the Northwest's most loved troubadours.
After releasing her debut EP in March 2000, Kathryn's reputation quickly grew
as a talented and powerful musician and performer with songs and a voice that
were, simply, stunning. Tracks from her EP began popping up on radio stations
from Seattle to Santa Cruz to New Haven CT., and fans started asking for more.
Continuing this momentum forward, Kathryn gathered together some of the finest
musicians in the Northwest, (Richard Middleton, Joel Litwin, Jami Sieber), and
recorded her debut full length CD, "Gratitude". A dynamic, sonically
beautiful, and artistically mature CD, "Gratitude" was selected as
one of the Top 12 Do-it-Yourself Albums in the November 2002 issue of Performing
Songwriter magazine. Kathryn is member of the Seattle Performing Songwriters
collective, and her signature song "India" was featured on the SPS
2001 Compilation CD. She showcased her music at the 2001 North American Folk
Alliance Conference in Vancouver BC, and continues to perform her blend of "Folk-Spirit"
up and down the West Coast.
