A note from Kat:

"It's no secret that the last couple years I've struggled with a lot of writers block with regards to my own material. Thinking too much, absorbing much of the world and, often, feeling really stuck in a certain trajectory while preparing a new album...all these feelings were coming to a head when I decided to take off to my friend Jonas's studio in June 2016. So I headed up to Mountain Grove, a good number of hours away by car. The intention was to soak in new scenery to finish up a collection of songs for my next record (Relax, due in spring 2017). While I did work a lot on refining those songs, I also experimented, improvised and felt myself opening up to whatever sounds fell into my hands and my heart. On a particularly rainy day the old Yamaha CP70 electric piano was beckoning, and I spent three hours in a lamplit room improvising on the piano while listening to the rain. I decided to record three 'acts' as they came out related to the storm I was playing in. The resulting songs bring me back to the headspace of allowing everything in, no judgement or pressure. Port William Instrumentals: minimal production, a lot of room sound, and some field recordings of the birds, crows, and rain hitting the eavestrough. 

Thank you for listening.
