“Having this identity—radical indigenous queer feminist—keeps me going. My music and my identity come from the same foundation of being a Native woman.” Katherine Paul (aka KP) is Black Belt Eagle Scout, and Mother of My Children is her debut album. Recorded in the middle of winter near her hometown in Northwest Washington, Paul’s connection to the landscape’s eerie beauty are palpable throughout as the album traces the full spectrum of confronting buried feelings and the loss of what life was supposed to look like. On Mother of My Children, the songs weave together to capture both the enduring and fleeting experiences of loss, frustration, and dreaming.

The structures are traditional, but the lyrics don’t adhere to any format other than what feels right in the moment. Mother of My Children is a life chapter gently preserved. The access listeners have to such vulnerability feels special and generous.
