Album Description

The transition to motherhood is a journey of heroism for every woman ~ necessity being the mother of invention! These songs are the slow release of the 'maiden self' and the build up to the realization of 'mother' in layers; song by song there is a story told of the subsequent degrees of letting go. The recording process of Libby’s new and fourth release, Heroine (UPC # 000206003324) began before Libby’s son Charlie was in the cards. finalized over a 6 year span, the CD finishes out with “Needle to the Record,” the song in which she ponders “who’s the puppet, and who’s the puppeteer?” – the perfect metaphor for the mother-child relationship. As you sink into her poetic reflections on this new chapter in life and experience her soothing, whispering, soaring vocal talent wrapped around her guitar – you’re simply transported; its her trademark! Libby Kirkpatrick’s entire “Heroine” album is a brave invitation to travel from your heart to hers and back to the center of your own. It’s brave musically too. With sophisticated arrangements and unique instrumental choices through her partnership with producer and musician Rob Halverson, Halverson’s quirky use of instrumentation together with Libby’s creative songwriting and vocal acrobatics create new sounds reminiscent of the creative input of George Martin. Rob and Libby’s production and songwriting talents combine to create dark, intimate story with subtle, yet surprising sounds that become more pronounced with each new listening.
