Current album project: One Breath
Anticipated in May 2020, One Breath features songs about transcendence, the joy of loving others well, and the profound experiences of living and dying. Songs on this album affirm hope, beauty, and comfort in the face of 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.

Update from Kaia as of February, 2020: The recording for this album is nearly complete. I have a title song that came along rather recently that I still need to record vocals and guitar for, otherwise all of the main vocals and guitar parts are recorded. Also completed: blues harp by Tricia Alexander for “Ridin’ Along” and Joe Jencks’ vocals and bouzouki for “Take Shelter in Love,” as well as percussion by Caleb Wood. Additional recording of lead parts and other finishing touches will be completed soon. Then the project moves on to the mixing and mastering stage before CDs get ordered. I am so thankful to everyone who has already donated to support this project and for your patience as I work to create an album that fully expresses the songs.
For those considering donating, thank you! Musicians need to be paid, as do the engineers and then there is physical pressing and distribution costs. Anything you can contribute to support the project will be greatly appreciated. Thanks again to everyone who has handed me cash at concerts, sent checks, and donated online. It means so much to me: encouragement, support, love. Mountains of gratitude!
Thank you to folks who have already backed this project! Your support helps me do more with my music! It means so much to me, always.

“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
