Real. Honest. Sad. Funny.
Kathryn's lyrics are a reflection of moving through life's light and dark.
Through her music, Kathryn unearths, unbuttons and examines all of her conversations. ..they are how we reach out to others and connect the disconnected.

A promise to herself and one other, "because i said i would" was the impetus for Blue Dirt Girl, in 2015, with long time collaborators and fellow East Vancouver musicians Albert Klassen and Jason Overy.
It's also the through line and philosophy for everything Kathryn does, from booking Trio/Duo band shows to producing and headlining multi-disciplinary shows to organizing and playing in fundraisers for local non profits, to mentoring young artists of all stripes.

Blue Dirt Girl’s EP “Nothing is as it was” dropped March 19th, 2021. The four track EP is a sharp left turn in the bands already diverse sound.
“The songs channel reggae/dub, modern soul, a dash of 70’s guitar magic. Something about the feel reminds me of Traffic, Joan Armatrading, and an unnamed, distant memory of the 80’s…This is not music that references influences. It breathes a sophisticated rare air.”Dennis Mills Vancouver based musician & blogger Review snippet.

In August 2016 Blue Dirt Girl released their debut album Crazy Beautiful. From 2016-2020 the band released 4 singles: Little Conversations, The Bad News, The Bad News Remix and Fill the Barrel.
