One of "New Orleans most prominent young singer/songwriters,” (The Vinyl District) “Kathryn captures complex, nuanced emotions in her songwriting, giving voice to things many people don't know how to say" (Sage Rouge, Johnny Sketch & The Dirty Notes).
Such a statement makes sense upon learning of the songwriter's background: the second oldest of ten children, the multi-instrumentalist found solace amid chaos by melodically communicating what she couldn't articulate. Wood, now a board-certified clinical music therapist, creates music from both a place of personal catharsis and a passion for extending connection, and it shows. Wood's newest single, "Bed of Roses," sultrily grabs the ear with a warm groove and soothing voice reminiscent of the best 90's RnB, all while telling the tale of breakdown beyond beauty through metaphorical wit. Or tune into "Big Steel Wings," a song written in the aftermath of her younger brother's suicide that touches on loneliness and doubt while paired with an uplifting chorus and nuanced slide guitar that dares to you sing along at the top of your lungs. If there's one takeaway from Wood's music, it's this: music is the most vulnerably-creative space she dares to confide in, with the listener given privilege as the confidant.
