Kathy Muir - Book Cover Judge Album Release
“An empowering independent female singer/songwriter” – Joshua Smotherman
By: Kathy Muir
Muir came to Connecticut three years ago from Scotland. A first ever studio experience, she partnered with producer Steve Hansen. Over the next 18 months they co-produced Muir's Far From Entirely. Even after the album was complete Muir continued to write and record, but then started to familiarize herself with Connecticut's live music scene.
Book Cover Judge includes song styles found in her debut album, but reveals a greater richness to her songwriting both lyrically and stylistically. The title of this twelve-song album could not be more apt.
'Collaboration' rings true with this album. Muir not only worked closely with Hansen, but also partnered with a cubist painter for one song and high school twins fighting homelessness in Miami for another. She continues to collaborate remotely with Edinburgh-based piano player Harry Whalley, determined that geography won't be a barrier.
