The music ranges from country rockers to urban ballads and campfire sing-alongs, with Kathleen’s lyrics detailing the wonder and excitement of seeing new places in each song.
From Kathleen: "At Listen Up I started writing songs that are travel-related. I have written about one each year so far. It gave me the idea of releasing a Travel EP Album. So far I have 5 songs on it which are the best ones from my over six years of being at Listen Up. I hope you enjoy it."
