"Plotting a new course, Pluto finds über-talented songstress Katie Haverly on a journey outward. Emboldened, politically charged and environmentally conscious, she is questioning what it means to be human and exploring the meaning of purpose through song. Haverly's potency as an artist stems from her impassioned quest to find understanding.
Pluto, produced by Gabriel Sullivan of XIXA, is Haverly's fifth studio album. Is it jazz, folk, blues, gospel? Or a measured intermixture? The sound is distinctively one of her own creation, inspired by her experience living in Tucson, absorbing the culture, the warmth of the desert and its inhabitants. "The love and acceptance I have experienced in this community, has forever changed my cellular structure, my heart," says Haverly.
Thematically, Haverly's lyrics run deep. Striking a balance between the very personal exploration of desires, fears and inadequacies juxtaposed next to those of social justice and concern for the health and well-being of all members of society. Yet, her songs are more than mere explorations. Rather, they are admonitions and calls to action. Haverly sees her music as a conduit to change.
There is fire in Katie Haverly's voice and conviction to her words. Pluto's timbre is unapologetic."
