I’m so thrilled to announce that my first single from “The Architects” is out TODAY!
Same Song is a tightly wound song written in the form of a palindrome. The idea for Same Song was born on a day when I realized that I had basically written the same song twice! I ended up scrapping both of those songs and writing this one instead. This was one of the most fun songs to record– The Bunker Studio has an incredible collection of vintage synthesizers, so Jamie Reynolds picked a vintage mini-Moog to experiment with in the studio and we ended up adding lots of extra layers of Moog!
I’m incredibly excited to present to you my upcoming album… ‘The Architects’!
This album lives somewhere in the space between modern jazz and folk and features all compositions by me, including a setting of an e.e. cummings poem. This album is about reaching and growing, trying to break out of our boxes and attempting to build a world that we want to live in. The music is intricately arranged for ensemble playing, with lots of layers of vocals and moments of improvised abandon. ’The Architects’ features an incredible cast of New York musicians with whom I feel privileged to make music with:
Lisanne Tremblay – Violin
Jamie Reynolds – Piano
Gary Wang – Bass
Nathan Ellman-Bell – Drums
’The Architects’ is set for worldwide release on June 5th on Outside In Music’s NextLevel imprint. Want to make sure you have the album the moment it’s released? You can pre-order it on Bandcamp starting on Tuesday: https://karivanderkloot.bandcamp.com/ Also, look out for new singles on May 5th and May 19th (plus a very cool music video on the 19th as well!!)

I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be recording a special direct-to-vinyl project with Leesta Vall Sound Recordings on 10/26/18!!! Each record is like an audio polaroid: the record will be cut live off the floor, and only one record will be pressed for each take– I can even personalize your record for you!
