‘Lullaby for Lucas’ is a song about “forgiveness and not being so quick to judge others”. Written after a man named Lucas, who she met whilst walking the Camino de Santiago.
She explains, “Lucas was an opera singer in Vienna but had lost his voice and had taken to living a nomadic existence. We had a jam in a bar one night and he tried to sing but his voice just came out as this croak which brought him to tears.”
A singer/songwriter from England UK, the bewitching soul of Katherine started to bloom from the early teen years, with an ambition to pursue her musical career. Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, and Bon Iver have inspired her throughout, influencing with subtle touches for lyrical and auric flare.
She composes songs on guitar that display poetic and thought provoking lyrical content and a haunting, soulful and soaring vocal delivery. Katherine’s songs blend contemporary subject matter with classic folk songwriting to create something truly unique and captivating.
‘Lullaby for Lucas’ is a story for story sake, with an open ended consumption for what life is for many of the human beings living on this thin crust of earth. It’s an attitude of living in fluid adjustments and ever looking attempts at a deeper self, while seeking excitement and arresting beauty within the slices of life’s silver-linings.
Beautiful sentiments, indeed.
Added Katherine: “I would hope in the moment the music may help someone to feel lighter in spirit. There’s so much beauty that exists inside our own minds and we can combat our daemons with it. I’m always dumb-struck by the transformative power of music.”
