With driving rhythms, soaring vocals and waling blues harp, Easy comes bouncing in evoking memories of a perfect summer road trip. Using the Detroit River as her muse, singer-songwriter, Karen Morand explores the arc of life, overcoming, letting go and leaving worry behind. The road ahead is unknown, but open and hopeful with the stereo turned up loud.

Songwriter Karen Morand casts power to stir the storm in your soul and part the dark clouds hovering over your heart.  Karen drives the engine through songs that clang, grind and chug with bold defiance, shaken faith and cryptic warnings; breathing steam around embraces of the wounded and outcast.”  Songstress and CJAM radio host Allison Brown 

Karen Morand – My God, you can sing!!” Les Palango, station manager (“The Hawk”) 

"Windsor based singer-songwriter Karen Morand writes wonderful warm earthy songs that speak to your heart and leave you begging to spend time in her company. Equally comfortable as a solo artist with a guitar or playing with her wonderful band "Bosco", her performances are definitely not to be missed.Jan Hall, host of Folk Roots Radio

The First Bird To Sing…..I’ve been carrying this song around with me for 40 years, since the unexpected passing of my brother by his own hand during a tortured adolescence that carried him, in a flood of drugs and alcohol, to the shores of self-annihilation. That same flood carried me in the same direction for ten years thereafter,   through three hospitalizations, a ruined career, a failed marriage and a damaged family, until, by the grace of God, in 1991, I washed up on a different shore, in a different land (metaphorically speaking), and set about putting my life in order. I have mostly succeeded, though certainly not without difficulty.

One more scroll, one more mouthful, one more guilty pleasure - there are things we do to deal with the hard parts of life. It becomes a problem when “just one more” isn't enough. Never Enough is a love song. It reaches into the heart of addictions and calls out the true soul of a person.

"Grandfather Walks is an homage to my grandfather, a Frenchman aptly named Voltaire, as seen through the eyes of my mother, Francine, who passed away at the age of 99 about a year ago. Voltaire was revered by his daughter and sadly died when she was only 16 years old. He lived on in her heart and through her warm remembrances of him, which she imparted to me. The memories her father inspired fueled my loving and imaginative depiction of the old man, the patriarch, the bon vivant, world traveler, and loving father to three little girls. In this song, and in the mind's eye, the grandfather and the father become one, a powerful archetype of strength and goodness."

From social justice to history to humor, the common thread among Standard's songs is their resonance--emotional, musical, and melodic. Throughout the 11-song album, such indelible Standard originals as "Same River", "Witness Protection", "One Time In A Row" and "The Opium Wards" convey wisdom and curiosity, showcasing the artist's uncanny ability to pinpoint fundamental emotional truths.

“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, Provincetown, MA

"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.
Kathleen is a valued folk singer. She steps into big shoes. Has sincerity, poignancy & warmth to her repertoire. She isn’t yet political – yet. She seems to prefer the importance of family, friends, unions & reminding all of us — life is worth living."
