Road Notes #1

Welcome to my k.o.a. (Kate on America) diary! Here and there I’ll be posting random thoughts and snaps along the way. Thinking back and doing a little research through my songwriting notebook it all started with A YEAR WITH RUMI in 2012. The reading for May 20th:

Birdsong brings relief
to my longing.

I am just as ecstatic as they are,
but with nothing to say.

Please, universal soul, practice
some song, or something,through me.

The phrase “some song, or something” said it all for me! From the first song I wrote when I was seven to every new tune that starts working it’s way forth. In late August of that year I got together with Mark Narmore (one of my longtime writing buddies) and we wrote SOME SONG!

I figure it wasn’t until about a year later the notion of the “k.o.a. tapes” appeared and SOME SONG is really the title cut. Give it a listen under the “music” tab…and until next time…

Peace along the way – K
