Brief bio: Kaia Fowler’s music draws from the rich traditions of American folk, acoustic blues, and roots rock. Her sound blends powerfully resonant vocals reminiscent of singers like Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell with engaging guitar work that ranges from delicate finger picking to percussive strumming. Kaia took up guitar playing and songwriting at a young age, and, throughout her life, she has poured her observations on life’s struggles, longings, joys, and sorrows into song. In concert, Kaia’s energy and authenticity invite listeners to transcend the day-to-day, getting at the heart of the human experience in the way only live music can. See full bio. . .

Press quote: “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, Publisher, Americana Gazette, Aug-Sept 2010
