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. An accomplished finger style 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. See full bio. . .

“It was a pleasure to host Kaia as a guest on Another Green World at WORT in Madison. It’s apparent- from her impressive guitar-work, beautiful voice, and intentional, evocative lyrics- that she is the real deal when it comes to both singing and songwriting. Our conversation was lively and she speaks about her music with authenticity and grace. Plus, she’s so da*n sweet! We’d have her back anytime.” Katie Hutchinson and Farmer Shaun, Another Green World WORT FM 89.9 Madison, Wis.
“Your music speaks to my soul.” (listener and supporter of the One Breath album crowdfunding project)
“When a CD is as sparsely orchestrated as Seams of My Heart is, the lyrics need to help carry the load, and they do. Fowler is a tremendous lyricist. Her lyrics paint pictures, and her musical notes add the color to her songs. She wrote all the songs on this CD and deserves all the credit for creating such works of art. . . . I really, really like this CD. I have seen Fowler live and her performances are true to this recording. There were not a lot of studio tricks here. Just really great songs performed by great musicians, and that equals a great recording. Watch for Fowler playing in your area.” ~ Andy Ziehli, Americana Gazette
