In 2002 Kathy Corliss released her debut album entitled Appletree. Shortly thereafter she was diagnosed with leukemia which cut her life and budding songwriting career short. Kathy left us with some incredible music which intensely reflects the human experience. From driving melodic rock to the title song Appletree which show her jazz influences, the album crosses over brilliantly. Her beautiful, sometimes haunting alto vocals and soulful music weave a story told in the poetic lyrics of this incredible album. Kathy wrote five more insightfully beautiful songs which have not yet been released. 'Appletree is a legacy of love and tenderness. We may never know how brightly Corliss' star might have shone, but it did glimmer for a short while and will stay radiant in the hearts of the people who loved her.' Lora Abcarian of the Bailey Flame. 'Hypnotic moody pop in the Cowboy Junkies/KD Lang genre. Jeez - this song is at least 3db hotter than any song on GB.com - is Butch Vig in the band? Nice mood established. The vocalist makes this song - can't imagine the song without her. The changes at the end are kind of different, like a second middle-8 section that never gets back to the chorus or verse. Lyrics and delivery are on point with the subject matter - well composed, thoughtful lyrics. 1 - Backing Vocals - Terrific. 2 - Lead Vocals - Effective, evocative. You can tell she can re-create her performance live. 3 - Guitars - I like how the guitar resolves to a complimentary melody to the chorus. Playing is quite tasty.'
