Used to “half-writing” songs to take to her fellow band members of The New Pornographers for further collaboration, Kathryn Calder had to do things differently during the process of creating her solo debut. With help from New Pornos pals, Neko Case, Kurt Dahle and Todd Fancey, along with members of Ladyhawk and Frog Eyes, Calder explored the uncharted territory of musical self-discovery with the ten songs that comprise Are You My Mother? Her first LP confirms she’s well on her way to being a solo performer to watch.
Are You My Mother? comes out August 10, 2010, and Calder is currently on tour with The New Pornographers.
