Musician Kathryn Kaye
Kathryn Kaye started her love affair with the piano at the age of 4. Since then, she has dedicated her life to music. Kaye studied voice and keyboard in college, and toured various places showcasing her vocal talents as a folk singer, soprano soloist, and operatic singer.
Kaye’s musical influences stem from her childhood upbringing in the Appalachian Mountains, her exposure to folksongs and hymns, her classical music background, and the majestic Rocky Mountains of Colorado where she currently resides. The result is a unique emotional musical style, blended with a hint of meditative qualities.

Kaye composed each track on the album, which was produced by Grammy Award winner Will Ackerman. Dreaming Still features an astounding composition of piano, violin, cello, bass, English horn, and percussion. Listeners will transcend from their busy, hectic day to a state of complete emotional stillness and dreamy relaxation.
It’s Kaye’s unparalleled ability to infuse both rich, dramatic melodies with ones a bit softer, a bit dreamy, that engages listeners’ entire being. Kaye’s debut album reached the number one spot on the Zone Music Reporter New Age/Ambient/World Music Top 100 list in January 2011.
Upon hearing the album’s first track, “Time Moving Slowly,” I knew I was in for a real treat. Kaye’s piano playing ability took my breath away. Each song on the album offers its own contribution to the Dreaming Still masterpiece.
The title track “Dreaming Still” conjures up that other-worldly feeling one gets when at the border between awake and asleep. One of my favorite tracks, “Leaf Dance,” showcases Kaye’s skills and passion for the piano. And the intriguing melody of “April Did You Call Me” had me hitting the repeat button a few times.
Listeners to Kathryn Kaye’s Dreaming Still will have the album playing over and over again, allowing Kaye to recapture their amazement each time.
