In the fall of 2021 Baylie Adams joined Albert and Kathryn on saxophone. Her intuitive playing has taken our modern soul sound to a whole new place. Live show video of new Blue Dirt Girl trio.
Blue Dirt Girl’s EP “Nothing is as it was” dropped March 19th, 2021. The four track EP is a sharp left turn in the bands already diverse sound.
“The songs channel reggae/dub, modern soul, a dash of 70’s guitar magic. Something about the feel reminds me of Traffic, Joan Armatrading…This is not music that references influences. It breathes a sophisticated rare air.”
Dennis Mills Vancouver based musician & music blogger. Full review.

Real. Honest. Sad. Funny.
Kathryn's lyrics are a reflection of moving through life's light and dark.
Through her music, Kathryn unearths, unbuttons and examines all of her conversations. Whether they're in-depth talks or brief exchanges, conversations are how we reach out to others and connect the disconnected.
A promise to herself and one other, "because i said i would" was the impetus for the creation of Blue Dirt Girl in 2015.
It's also the through line and philosophy for everything Kathryn does, from booking Trio/Duo band shows to producing and headlining multi-disciplinary shows to organizing and playing in fundraisers for local non profits.
When not fronting Blue Dirt Girl, Kathryn sings, plays and writes with Vancouver based indie band Hello(again). Prior to forming Blue Dirt Girl, she created and performed for 20 years with East Vancouver Art Pop band Push3.
