I am releasing my new album today in the hopes I can raise funds for the Tucson musicians and live music venue I love - Exo/El Crisol during this strange time in our world.

100% OF ALL FUNDS RAISED FROM DIGITAL SALES OF THIS ALBUM WILL GO DIRECTLY TO THE TWO FOLLOWING GO FUND ME CAMPAIGNS (50/50):

Fund for support for Exo & El Crisol employees:
www.gofundme.com/f/fund-for-support-for-exo-amp-el-crisol-employees?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link-tip&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet

EACH NIGHT I WILL DONATE ALL EARNINGS SO EACH CAMPAIGN CAN SEE WHAT WE'VE ACCOMPLISHED TOGETHER AND BE ABLE TO TRANSMIT FUNDS TO THOSE IN NEED QUICKLY.

PLEASE GIVE WHAT YOU CAN TO SUPPORT OUR TUCSON MUSIC COMMUNITY, NO AMOUNT IS TO SMALL, OR TOO BIG FOR EACH TRACK OR THE WHOLE ALBUM <3

"A heartrending album that is Katie Haverly's eight release - Matter adroitly navigates rock, pop, and folk genres, combining jazz sensibilities with poetically introspective lyrics. The gorgeous vocals and tight musicianship pull you in to listen closely, to mull the words, and deeply appreciate the profoundly personal stories she's scribed."

Track Name: Zero Null Mono One
ZERO NULL MONO ONE

I don’t wanna bother you
I don’t wanna bother you
But can you tell me what you’re gonna do
Tell me what you’re gonna do

I don’t wanna bother you
I don’t wanna bother you
But man I see this light in you
Man it burns straight through

In two years four years six years time
In two years four years six years time
The noise you make the quiet life
The noise you make the quiet life

In two years four years six years time
In two years four years six years time
The noise you make the quiet lies
The noise you make the quiet lies

Track Name: Call
CALL

I don't ever call
When you want me to
I don't ever fall the way you taught me to

I don't ever call
I don't try much at all
But I am never dull despite
The bad reviews

And I wonder if you know I
Push myself to the side
When you're on the line

I don't ever want
The way you want me to
But I am never small unless
I talk to you

Under secret vaults
Hidden by you
Are memories of the lies that tried
To be the truth

And I wonder if you know I
Push myself to the side
When you're on the line

I don't ever call
When you want me to
I don't ever fall the way you taught me to
Track Name: Bigger Heart
BIGGER HEART

A bigger heart
Takes up some more room
Tissue that’s scarred
Needs the space to house the wound
But a bigger heart
Right now’s got a lot of work to do
But growin’ it’s hard
Surrounded by pictures that they drew

So much out there to be sure of
So much out there to be made up

But a bigger heart
Feels the tides before they bloom
Like an aftershock
Premonitions of what’s left to do
Isn’t it sharp
Everything they knew
Time to crawl out of the dark
Show our faces
Integrate our muse

So much out there to be sure of
So much out there to be made up

But a bigger heart
Isn’t so far from you
Yeah growin it’s hard
But not if what we say is what we do
Say is what we do
Track Name: Thieves
THIEVES

3 feet was when they made you stow
Each day the unmarked presence known
Over the years of course it grew
Elbowed out seedlings breaking through
So many whispers in your ear
The tendrils strong they persevered
Until there just was no more room
The pressure built until you knew
But the seeing was treason to you

But now but now but now but now...

No more keys for the thieves

Of course you'll peel this line by line
Disavow the image in your mind
But either way you'll feel it close
The beast that you cursed her to host
But in the end this was the plan
You didn't know then but now you can
There's nothing left for you to less
She's putting on her best dress
Swaying out in the west
She's putting on her best dress
Swaying out in the west

But how but how but how but how

No more keys for the thieves
No more keys for the thieves

But now but now but now but now
You come along...
Track Name: Matter
MATTER

Just the right light - just the right lens
Just the right place - just the right stance
Get it up close - get what it says
Someone might write - someone's missing
Just the right light - just the right lens
Just the right place - just the right stance
Get it up close - get what it says
Someone might write - someone's missing

So - make it count - Matter

If you look close then you'll find
The story 'bout the time
You made up in your mouth
In the library downtown
Where you dropped off the kids
You dropped off the kids

But do you know
It comes and goes
But do you know
In the way - in the way you see me

Just the right light - just the right lens
Just the right place - just the right stance
Get it up close - get what it says
Someone might write - someone's missing
Just the right light - just the right lens
Just the right place - just the right stance
Get it up close - get what it says
Someone might write - someone's missing

So make it count - Matter
Track Name: Wave
WAVE

We met on a wave
You were higher that day than the ones from before
You liked it that way
The arc of the water that took us to shore
We met on a wave
Didn’t know it was the calm before the storm
But I liked it that way
Never knowing if we’d ever win the war

Time keeps shifting
As we’re drifting on…

The call came from Jane
Outlining the tape that she ripped from the sword
You took the blade
Like you did every time it happened before
The walking away
Slow enough so we could see what we ignored
And the cries of the saints
Unsure if we’d ever win the war

Time keeps shifting
As we’re drifting on…

What’s on your mind
What you trying to find
Do you know why
I’ll never forget you
I’ll never forget you
Track Name: Notice
NOTICE

I own something that you might not
I bought something I didn’t want
Put my money on the counter
Grabbed a bag and I walked
Never trying to notice
What I was

I give way to what makes most sense
The burning of sage, whispering tenants
Gotta pick and choose wisely ‘cause
The trip down there’s been planned
Still I’m never trying to notice
What I am
I’m never trying to notice
What I am

But I will never know what it’s like for you

One sum counting the days before
Like dominoes splayed on the parquet floor
Gotta pick and choose wisely even though
There’s always more
Still I’m never trying to notice
The door
I’m never trying to notice
The door

But I will never know what it’s like for you
But I will never know what it’s like for you
But I get the sense you feel it too
But I will never know what it’s like for you
Track Name: Whir
WHIR

Each house has a different whir
AC - evap cooler
Pass each one the sound's a blur
Another night in the desert
Another night in the desert

Street globes fill up with cream
The sky is a movie screen
The woes of creosote are sweet
Another night in the heat
Another night in the heat

And then the sun lays down to bed
And then the sun lays down to bed
And then the sun lays down to bed
And then the sun lays down to bed
And then the sun lays down to bed
And then the sun lays down to bed

You aren’t the only ones
You aren’t the only ones
You aren’t the only ones

Gamblers play and minstrels croon
Hustlers in dark saloons
Mystical and sweet the moon
Another night with you
Another night with you
Another night with you
Track Name: Warranty
WARRANTY

I got the full warranty
Life’s getting easy
Each season planting trees
Peeling the skins off the nourished seeds
I never thought I could
Give just myself this much good
Getting confused now who is who
And what’s the next theory I should prove

All I wanted now comes calling
All I knew
Keeps breaking with every turn of the screw

When it’s far away
You don’t have to know what to say

It’s hard to notice when you won’t stop and see
All of the lives you made pretty
Wielding the blade to cut through the weeds
Babe, that wasn’t easy
Isn’t it strange when it appears
You’re riddled with shame and so insecure
Despite the pain and toil and choices
That brought you here

All I wanted now comes calling
All I knew
Keeps breaking with every turn of the screw

When it’s far away
You don’t have to know what to say
Track Name: Open
OPEN

I trusted it ‘cause I was just a kid
Only now do I understand what that did
I always thought it was just your interest
Pickin’ me apart
Just curious

But does it really matter anyway
It’s almost done and I’m so far away
But is it right to keep putting on this face

Can’t pretend it hasn’t changed

But I’ll fly over the water
I’ll get lost in the motion
And who and how don’t matter
I’m open

Strawberries on a Wednesday
No more Santa Claus but we can go swimming
Orange and yellow and legs that fell too close together
Once it got started it got pretty hard to find her

Can’t pretend it hasn’t changed
Can’t pretend it hasn’t changed

But I’ll fly over the water
I’ll get lost in the motion
And who and how don’t matter
I’m open
