Date of birth: March 6, 1963
Kathleen was born in Massachusetts/USA in 1963. Five years later her family emigrated to Spain. Already at that time music played an important role in her family life. So it was obvious to get musical lessons as a child. At the age of nine she was taught to play the violin and the piano by the most reputable teachers of the conservatories in Pamplona and Madrid.
When she was 15 her father decided that they should earn their living as road musicians. Private music making changed to professional, it became their source of income and from then they daily played in the streets all over Europe. Also at that time she was taught by very good teachers and learnt to play the violin in Vienna at the age of 16. Besides that she already had ballet lessons as a child regularly. Although she graduated as Prim Ballerina, music played the more important role in her life from the age of 17 on.
Kathy was also challenged in her private life when she was young, since she had to overtake the mother role after her mother’s early death in 1981. Her major task was to look after her younger brothers and sisters. Additionally, as the producer she was responsible for the musical branch of the Kelly Family’s CD-productions for many years. In 1992 her son Sean was born.
Now she will search for her own paths for the first time. This starting over becomes obvious regarding the title of her new album “Morning Of My Life”. Her new look is another way to express this.
In order to be able to develop further musical talents, she handed over the responsibility for her CD-Production to different reputable producers. "I’m very satisfied with the result. It’s a very personal album, showing my own potential without neglecting my musical origin", she said.
