“Incredible artists have for years crafted brilliant works around their own emotional reckonings, but Katherine Redlus goes above and beyond in her new song “Welcome Home.” A vulnerable and ethereal sonic embrace, Redlus’ “Welcome Home” wraps listeners in waves of self-love and belonging as the emerging artist unravels her own spiritual and emotional journey.” - Mitch Mosk, Atwood Magazine. http://atwoodmagazine.com/krwh-katherine-redlus-welcome-home/
"Beautifully written and performed music." - Modestus Mankus, Our Culture Mag.
Katherine Redlus is a NYC based singer-songwriter that works with electroacoustic harp and electronics. She released her debut dream-pop/avant-garde album, BRUTAL WALTZ, on January 21, 2019 after having successfully funded the project through Kickstarter in 2018. Her first single off the album, “Kingdom Come” premiered on Our Culture Mag in 2018, and was featured on the radio at Hot 103.9 (SoCal) Local Artist Spotlight. Returning to NYC, she performed “Kingdom Come” at the NYC Electroacoustic Festival at the Abrons Arts Center - showcasing the possibilities of processing the electroacoustic harp and blending it with synthesized sound. Her second single, “Welcome Home” premiered on Atwood Magazine. Recent performances include The National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, where she performed a large private show of her album and gave a speech and at RISE in NYC in collaboration with Einnovations & The Soundshop this past April. In addition to performing, she continues to blend her unique combination of writing, speaking and performing to raise awareness around mental health and wellness.

ABOUT DEBUT ALBUM
BRUTAL WALTZ was an album inspired by both my work with Ableton Live and reading the spiritual/metaphysical text A Course in Miracles. The writing is challenging, beautiful, poetic, thought-provoking, and describes a "miracle" as a "shift in perception". The text reminds the reader that each fearful, hateful, angry thought is a detour away from our true nature - which is love. This album is a psychological journey deep through the labyrinth of fear itself, through to the other side where reality is questioned and only love is real. My hope and desire is to musically paint the psychological experience of returning from darkness and fear back to love and light. I have worked with my album producer Danny Echevarria (aka Dan Destiny) to craft a harp-centric sonic palette that is otherworldly and all-encompassing. The album is also meant to showcase the full range of the electroacoustic harp - both the lightness and the beauty that it is best known for, as well as the harshness, noise and altered sounds that are also possible, but less often heard. This album is not only an exploration of mystical themes, but an exploration of the sonic possibilities using only harp, altered harp, synthesized sounds and the human voice.
