KAIA FOWLER/ PETE JONSSON
April 16, 2016 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm$7.50
KAIA FOWLER’s music is a cross-blend of folk, blues, rock and Americana. Through supple, strong vocals and guitar work that ranges from delicate finger style to rhythmic strumming, Kaia shares songs that explore life’s longings, struggles and celebrations. Rooted in nature, Kaia’s songs resonate with strength and vulnerability, seeking to bring light even when approaching some of the darkest moments in life.
Performing at folk clubs, house concerts and venues that include the Cafe’ Carpe in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin and Froth House in Madison, Kaia shares originals and select covers that include songs by John Prine, Patty Griffin, Tracy Chapman and Susan Tedeschi. Kaia’s songwriting has been compared to Joni Mitchell’s for its lyrical metaphors, rich melodies and creative harmonies.
Kaia released her first album, Seams of My Heart in 2010. With Kaia on guitar and vocals, the album also features Randy Sabien on violin and mandolin, Paul Bast on dobro, Sam Steffke on piano, and Jeremy Reutebuch on percussion.
From the Americana Gazette album review: “Each song is very well written, with a true authenticity of life. You can picture yourself or someone you know in each story line.” He continues, “Fowler is a tremendous lyricist. Her lyrics paint pictures and her musical notes add the color…” (Aug.-Sept. 2010 issue)
Following the release of Seams of My Heart, Kaia was invited to play her song “Who Are You?” as a guest at Michelle Shocked’s concert at the High Noon Saloon in Madison, Wisconsin. Singles from the debut album received airplay on Women of Substance online radio.
A new EP album, All The Way, was released October 3, 2015 to benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, in memory of Kaia’s husband Scott R. Jaeger who died of pancreatic cancer at the age of 44 in July, 2013. Samples of the album are available at soundcloud.com/kaiafowler.
PETE JONSSON is a fine guitar player and singer with an interesting repertoire of Americana tunes. He was one of the members of the beloved trio Live Bait. Pete has made excellent use of his early retirement to submerge himself in his music.
