Black Belt Eagle Scout is Portland native Katherine Paul’s solo venture into music. Her powerful songwriting is heavily based on her Native American culture and a shining example of this is “Indians Never Die” from her debut album, Mother of My Children. This song is a culmination of her passion and respect for the her culture and those with their own. She truly is speaking for her people, and against those who oppress and pollute our lives with hatred.
Not only does her songwriting speak volumes about her believes, but she also draws you in with soft and elegant tones, then follows it up with fast and sharp captivating guitar solos.
