Dear Friends, This summer my beloved brother Rob was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident on his way home from work on the freeway in Los Angeles, California. My family and I are devastated by his loss. He was a free living, fearless, larger than life character and so there is a big hole in our family. We and his friends gave him a beautiful sendoff it was our own Californian version of a Hawaiian paddle out ceremony beyond the breaking waves of our early childhood home on 29th Street in Manhattan Beach. Our cousin Jason Salter made a beautiful film of it which i will share with you here.... Aloha for now x kathleen
If you happen to be in Russia or the Ukraine my entire catalogue is now available to listen to and download here: that means you Edward Snowden!
In the run up to the holidays if you are considering giving the gift of music I have 3 albums that are a sonic way to soothe the savage beast. Please get in touch if you have a special someone in mind.... We can post the CD anywhere in the world!
Holiday Greetings Facebook friends! there is still time to give the gift of music to your friends and loved ones this holiday season either via the shop on my website http://kathleenhaskard.com/shop/ where all 3 of my cd's are for sale or via iTunes or CDBaby http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/kathleenhaskard
so i find myself in the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago at the V & A's fabulous David Bowie (Official) exhibition today (missed the London run) and multiple things come to mind... The first ever street i lived on in London was Stansfield Road in Brixton where Himself lived.... and while we were making my 2nd album Kathleen Haskard - Don't Tell at Hyde Street Studios in San Francisco my producer/mentor Chuck Prophet Official said that my song Like A Pearl Necklace had some Bowie-esque chord changes (which i've no doubt was due to my brilliant collaborator Toby Tobias Fauntleroy Slater) a compliment I lapped up like a Kat who got the cream... so thank you Toby, Chuck & David for lifting this girl up with your magic stardust!
