Lullabies for Grownups-Stars
Lullabies for Grownups - Stars is slightly longer than an hour and designed so that each song leads gently to the next and the last song leads back into the first. This album was composed in the summer of 2008 in beautiful Bozeman, Montana on a Regent baby grand piano in my studio, with the nighttime splendor of our gorgeous Montana sky. Recorded on a Yamaha C-6, 6'11" Concert Grand, at Peak Recording and Sound, with the thoughtful and peaceful Gil Stober at the controls. I am grateful for his heart and his encouragement as we created this gentle music. The piano sounds fantastic, and I highly recommend purchasing the CD. I created 3 Lullabies for Grownups albums. Clouds is the first and available on CDBaby, and The Moon is available now! Thanks! · Kate Kohler 'From the moment I listen to Kate's music I feel inspired and uplifted. What a gift for a mother and her baby to hear as they start a new life together.' · Gilli Stuppel, Acupuncturist & Childbirth Doula 'We never outgrow our need for lullabies - those soothing melodies that calm our spirits and restore our souls. Kate Kohler's original compositions feed the need. Like other Montana piano artists, such as Philip Aaberg and George Winston, Kate paints images with musical notes. You will find serene and tranquil scenes presented in this wonderful collection.' · David Burt, District Superintendent, United Methodist Church 'Kate's 'Stars' airdropped us into our favorite mountain spring meadow with wild flowers, waterfall mist, and breezes. We sit next to each other by the fire, our souls connect. Life is vivid, luminous, and exquisite serenity is revealed.' ·Anna-Pia & John Hubacher, Pantheon Research 'Stars by Kate Kohler is the work of a composer and pianist working in a perfect balance of passion and craft. There's a mathematical precision to the execution of this song cycle that evokes vast and beautiful inner moods. The themes and strucutures capture the spiritual and scientific wonder of gazing heavenward from the earth. Angle, light, color, and distance are conveyed with a technical finesse that touches grace. Be light. Ascend. Make a wish. This is music you can breathe.' · Greg Owens, Writer/Performer.
