Kathryn Calder recently sat down with Noisey to talk about her self-titled third solo album, which is embedded as a stream with the interview. According to Calder, “all of the things we deal with in life are sort of echoed in nature because we’re really an extension of our surroundings so I feel – at least for this record – I was more drawn to those types of themes and metaphors to describe my life.” Calder also talks extensively about the experience of losing her mother to ALS, a subject that is at the heart of her upcoming documentary A Matter of Time – An ALS Documentary.
