Katie Haverly – Around The Bend
2008, Katie Haverly

Pre-Socratic Philosophers dealt with questions of Being and Becoming: Existence and the powers of change that guide and bridge our existence from day to day. Katie Haverly has struggled with these questions in her music, from Face Down to The City. On Around The Bend, she takes steps to define herself in her own terms, stepping away from the labels of the world. In a word, she has come into her own.

It is difficult to classify Ms. Haverly’s sound. Imagine if Joni Mitchell and Aimee Mann had a musical lovechild, and you’d be somewhere in the vicinity of the area that Katie Haverly plays in. Katie Haverly writes powerfully personal songs, and attacks them with a strong yet beautiful voice. Based out of Troy, New York, Katie Haverly plays in a talented but small music market. It would be easy overlook her just up the Hudson from New York City. Don’t.

My personal favorite here is Fire In The Kitchen, but it doesn’t matter which one I pick. Every song here is strong, and the emotional sincerity and depth of lyrical content will connect with listeners regardless of their usual flavor of music. Other highlights include Real Good, Coffee and Thoreau, and To Keep And To Lose. Around The Bend is the sort of musical Watershed moment that tells you whether an artist has long-term staying power. I’ve seen the future, and it’s very bright for Katie Haverly

"Plotting a new course, Pluto finds über-talented songstress Katie Haverly on a journey outward. Emboldened, politically charged and environmentally conscious, she is questioning what it means to be human and exploring the meaning of purpose through song. Haverly's potency as an artist stems from her impassioned quest to find understanding." Tucson Weekly ... more

Track Name: Buttons
Buttons (written by Katie Haverly)

It's getting late to, make it feel right
I don't want to make you try
You said some kind of nice things
Touched me sort of tenderly, but
You don't know me
And I don't like it

It's not a matter of
Knowing what you want
Forgive me for being blunt
It is my way

So here comes another soldier
His costume is pretty
Enticing for a moment, but not for long
I have a secret tin
I keep their buttons in
Some are shiny and hand carven
I shake it when I'm alone

Wonder what will come
With three decades up
Oh how they've come and gone
And I seem the same

I can't remember the last time
It welled inside
The feeling to stay
We all just want another guide
To lead us to the fire
Teach us how to get free

It's getting late to, make it feel right
I don't want to
Make you try
