Leaving with a certificate in Professional Music studies, she returned to California where she worked in a variety of bands, and focused on writing her own songs and compositions. After a few years she went solo and landed her first recording contract. The following year she released Soliloquy, an album of classical piano pieces. It sold out its first run. Her original composition featured on the album - Silver Song - received international airplay.
She also began working for the record label that had released Soliloquy and was instrumental in securing a deal to re-issue an album by legendary keyboardist, Keith Emerson (The Nice; Emerson, Lake & Palmer). When the label folded a few years later, Kathie moved north to Hansville, Washington, a beautiful small community at the north end of the Kitsap Peninsula in Western Washington. There, Kathie formed her own production company, Loro Cove Productions. Within two years of moving there, she released an album simply titled Christmas - a collection of holiday instrumentals, performed on keyboards, piano and guitars. Soon after its release, Kathie was back writing again. A growing collection of original songs began to take on the shape of an album, which she demoed at her home.
But before she could begin the final recording process, she met and married an Englishman. She moved to Ealing, West London to join her new husband where she set up a home recording studio and got to work on the collection of songs she had created. Within six months, Kathie had completed her first album of all original words and music - Butterfly Bones, a retrospective of the events of the past few years in her life. In March 2007 Butterfly Bones was signed up by Proper Distribution for an exclusive UK distribution deal. In September 2007 Kathie Touin released her most recent CD, Soliloquy Deluxe, which contains 21 tracks of piano music.
Based on her album Soliloquy, it features re-mastered tracks, newly-released bonus tracks and specially-created artwork. The music includes Debussy's Clair de Lune, Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, Keith Emerson's A Blade of Grass and three original compositions by Kathie. Read more on Last.fm.
