Biography
Kathleen Healy's new album "Embracing the Journey" is a collection of 12 original songs written straight from the heart about embracing this journey we are all traveling, the highs and lows she's weathered along the way, and the incredible people she's been blessed to have encountered.

"The 12-track, 42-minute LP is of a personal nature. Her melodies are often memorable with touches of classic melodies from other sources (“Gift From My Mother”) the most obvious. Nonetheless, the tune is a beauty, with excellent sound. A playful tone to Ms. Healy’s voice — ala Nanci Griffith. (True, as well of “Slip Away”). Most effecting. 
Kathleen is a valued folk singer. She steps into big shoes. Has sincerity, poignancy & warmth to her repertoire. She isn’t yet political – yet. She seems to prefer the importance of family, friends, unions & reminding all of us — life is worth living." 
--John Apice - Americana Highways

Kathleen Healy was presented by Folk DJ Bob Weiser of WOMR at the annual DJ Showcase at the 2019 NERFA (Northeast Regional Folk Alliance) held in Stamford CT. "Small Things" was a finalist in the 2018 New England Song Writing Contest in the folk category.

“Kathleen Healy writes songs that come right from the heart, and when she sings them for you, they'll go right into your heart.”  
— Bob Weiser, host of the Old Songs' Home Radio Show on WOMR, Provincetown, MA 

​"​KATHLEEN HEALY/Embracing the Journey: An engaging folkie​, ​A solid set of acoustic music with an ear bent toward liberation.​" --Midwest Record​

Kathleen is a hard-working musician & songwriter living on Cape Cod. She draws from her experience of living and raising a family near the beach for many of her songs. Some say salt water runs through her veins. She writes from the heart and her honest lyrics and often poignant subject matter lend themselves to the unique quality of her voice. She admits to being a live music junkie but is currently not seeking treatment for her addiction.
Kathleen appears regionally in southern New England as a solo performer. She hosts open mic nights at local venues and thoroughly enjoys supporting the live music scene on Cape Cod and collaborating with other local musicians. When she is not performing or hosting, Kathleen can be found back in the studio recording new tunes. Her second studio album, Embracing the Journey, is scheduled for release in Feb 1, 2020. Her first studio album, Spark, was released in June of 2014.

"Singer-songwriter may categorize Kathleen Healy, but what it doesn’t do is tell us what she writes and what she sings, how she finds meaning and poetry in the everyday and how through her music she explores life’s struggles, hopes and simple joys.
I suppose one could also say she’s a folk singer, not in the sense that she sings of grand deeds or great tragedies, but in that her songs and stories are our songs and stories and through her music we see ourselves." – Joe Burns, The Register, Barnstable, MA

“To say that music is a serious passion of Kathleen Healy’s would probably be something of an understatement. Since returning to her Harwich hometown roughly a decade ago, Healy has added her voice to the chorus of Cape singer-songwriters while making sure to give back as often as possible” - Kat Szmit, Cape Cod Chronicle, Chatham, MA
