Kathi's songs don't burn rubber on a dead end road going nowhere fast, no vision, no hope, rather, they remind one of a rich life. One that's possible despite all the voices telling you it's not, hope bigger than the punches that could hurt. "Greater Than Gold" recorded at Parrot Tracks in Austin, Texas with Ace in the Hole, George Straits band: Rick Mcrae on guitar. She also worked with Charley Larkey, whom many would recognize as the seminal bass player on Carol King's seminal "Tapestry" and John Mills - Leonard Cohen and Chris Searles from Austin. Nordone ambles through the ruins of experience, with an optimism that defies long suffering. Her West Texas, North East songs unearth pearls of love ~ where people are openhearted.
AUGUST 2020 RADIO interview WJTO 730 AM MEMORY STATIONS LC Van Savage
On A bus. Christmas Eve. NYC.
Christmas gifts brought from Austin.
All I heard were words,
Love and Peace on a bus in the East~
hard to believe
most say - why go there.
....afraid to leave Austin, leave Texas, the high spirited youthful people who I met and who inspired me. Older sister left, sad, mom gone.
"I'm traveling now~ walking, bus, train, plane, taxi too, in and on the clouds, comforted by heavens hugs, resting often on my hand looking out at the world, resting in a blanket of softness, unimaginable, along the way -
"Arriving in NY, on the bus, Christmas Eve, was precious. Love was real. All I heard were words of Love and Peace on a bus in the East. Thank You, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays~that's All.
They knew, wisdom, if any night could bring Peace for them - it was Christmas Eve. LOVE looking out at gravestones from 400 years ago that went on for miles.
