Not All The Leaves Are Falling

Kathryn Overall | Debut Album

For almost three happy years, I have been picking away at this album of songs which span seven years of my life and story.

These songs explore the liminal space between loss and hope. The collection is my melodic ode to difficult endings and strained new beginnings, to getting lost and being found, to unlocked traumas and healing journeys, to deep, quiet and still places, to feet-finding, hope-discovering, friend-making, community-building, to awakening,  to spiritual graces, to reinvention and liminal spaces – and through it all, to my God, my source of everlasting love, my compass and my horizon, my deep silence and my brave expression.

I hope you discover space for your own stories inside my words and find your own sense of hope within my melodies.
