Kathleen Knighton grew up among the mountains and valleys of West Virginia and followed a meandering path westward to San Francisco. Her musical roots extend across the map too, ranging from folk to rock to country and blues.

Knighton's strength as a singer/songwriter can be found between the rippling lines of her new EP, Brook Stones, often requiring a second--and third--listen to discover rich layers of meaning. Her voice flows delicately over her lyrics at times, then changes streams to belt with energy and power. She has toured as a vocalist in a dozen countries and was a featured performer at the West Coast Songwriters Conference in 2013.
