“Kathleen Healy writes songs that come right from the heart, and when she sings them for you, they'll go right into your heart.”
— Bob Weiser, host of the Old Songs' Home Radio Show on WOMR
Kathleen is a hard-working musician & songwriter living on Cape Cod. She draws from her experience of living and raising a family near the beach for many of her songs. Some say salt water runs through her veins. She writes from the heart and her honest lyrics and often poignant subject matter lend themselves to the unique quality of her voice. She admits to being a live music junkie but is currently not seeking treatment for her addiction.
Kathleen appears regionally in southern New England as a solo performer. She hosts open mic nights at local venues and thoroughly enjoys supporting the live music scene on Cape Cod and collaborating with other local musicians. When she is not performing or hosting, Kathleen can be found back on the road promoting her second studio album, Embracing the Journey, is scheduled for release on February 1, 2020. Her CD entitled Spark was released in June of 2014.

The 12-track, 42-minute LP is of a personal nature. Her melodies are often memorable with touches of classic melodies from other sources (“Gift From My Mother”) the most obvious. Nonetheless, the tune is a beauty, with excellent sound. A playful tone to Ms. Healy’s voice — ala Nanci Griffith. (True, as well of “Slip Away”). Most effecting. --John Apice - Americana Highways
“KATHLEEN HEALY/Embracing the Journey: An engaging folkie, A solid set of acoustic music with an ear bent toward liberation." --Midwest Record
"Singer-songwriter may categorize Kathleen Healy, but what it doesn’t do is tell us what she writes and what she sings, how she finds meaning and poetry in the everyday and how through her music she explores life’s struggles, hopes and simple joys.
I suppose one could also say she’s a folk singer, not in the sense that she sings of grand deeds or great tragedies, but in that her songs and stories are our songs and stories and through her music we see ourselves." -- Joe Burns, The Register
“To say that music is a serious passion of Kathleen Healy’s would probably be something of an understatement. Since returning to her Harwich hometown roughly a decade ago, Healy has added her voice to the chorus of Cape singer-songwriters while making sure to give back as often as possible” --Kat Szmit, Cape Cod Chronicle
