Kathleen Lundquist was born in southern California and raised in the Pacific Northwest. She grew up singing and playing piano at home, school, and church. She began writing songs at the age of 15 in the pop/folk styles of the late 1970s and played keyboards and sang with several Portland bands in the 1980s and '90s. She also has been acting for over 25 years in school, church, and community theatre productions; her recent experience includes featured background roles in independent television series and major studio films as well as leads in local commercials and voiceover work. She volunteers as voice talent for 88.3 KBVM-FM, a Portland community radio station.
She enjoys all types of music; she has appeared with classical/chamber music ensembles, gospel choirs, jazz groups, rock bands, and even an experimental electronic vocal trio. Kathleen's performance background also includes Renaissance madrigals; she loves the elegant simplicity of Gregorian chant and the light, crisp harmonies of the Renaissance and Baroque eras. Major influences on the development of her genre-crossing vocal style include Enya, Karen Carpenter, Joni Mitchell, Emmylou Harris, Sam Phillips, Karen Peris, and the Anonymous 4.
Kathleen's goal with her music is to be an instrument of peace on Earth.
