I’m thrilled to be this close to Moment of Bliss finally coming out, March 2nd is just around the corner! Today I bring you the track “Weight Lifting,” the final song I’ll be releasing in advance of the full album release. Yesterday it was premiere’d it along with an interview about my production involvement with Ingrid Michaelson on her upcoming project and I got to share a few thoughts on the status of female producers.

From the day I started to write “Weight Lifting” to the day I find myself releasing it, this song seems to be living up to its name in a way that reminds me just how connected my life is to my art.  A few years ago I was having a breakthrough in my relationship, starting to see the light after a season that had lots of confusion… it felt like a weight had lifted and this song helped me to capture that feeling and hang on to it. 

This week I shared a Valentines Day post on my Instagram. It was a moment that snuck up on me, a complete whim, but finally felt like the right time to share publicly, my love for and relationship with Butterfly Boucher. If you don’t know who she is, she is an incredible musician and artist and human being, and a bit Australian:) While we’ve been open about our relationship in our personal lives for years, we’ve never announced it formally, for reasons that served their own purpose in that time. I’m already starting to feel the fruits of this kind of vulnerability, the love shared, coming back at us in so many beautiful ways. Another weight lifted… one day and one act of courage at a time. Life comes at you fast and as an artist, I haven’t always known how much of my life to share and how much to keep for myself. Mostly because I’ve never had it all figured out! (Can I get an amen?!) I’ve always counted on songs to help make that decision for me, my safe place:) I have a friend whose grandmother would tell her, “It tastes better when you share.” I think that means a lot on so many different levels. So if you’ve read this far… thanks for letting me share.

Love, Katie

New Single “Weight Lifting” off the upcoming album ‘Moment of Bliss’ due March 2nd, 2018.
