Ann Kathryn spent much of the early 2000s fronting the band Lookdown Moon. Ann Kathryn’s solo work is very new to Duluth music fans, but the clean vocals and driven piano melodies bear a striking resemblance to the style of longtime local favorite Mary Bue. The artist started work on a debut album last summer with producer Jason McGlone at the Hideaway studio in Minneapolis. It contains small supplementary contributions from several local artists and ground-level creative collaboration with bassist George Ellsworth, who also provides backup during live performances. The two are excited to share the final product, which is set to release this spring, just in time for Homegrown.
