“A piano that wails in a Tori Amos, hard-rain style, then veers into avant-garde jazz, then into a gentle New Age caress, [and a voice that] is throaty and melodious, like the sound a tiger-lily would make if it had the power of song.” ~Erica Parfit, The Missoulian

“Kate Kohler’s “Moon” is not your typical, simplistic, new age fare.  Her compositions are complex enough to engage our minds, while the beautiful melodies sooth and serenade our emotions.“ ~ Debra Russell, Artist’s Success Coach

“Lovely–simply lovely.  Kate’s music lulls you into a state of comfortable relaxation.  She has authored an experience for the listener to hear her story or for the listener to weave their own.  It reminds me of the summer days of my childhood–lying on my back gazing at the clouds–letting my mind and spirit wander.  A delicious reminder for each of us to simplify and relax.  Enjoy!” ~ Mary M. Bertagnolli, Licensed Acupuncturist
