Riding Toward Albany

Beside Kathryn’s amazing acting talent she has a wonderful singing voice. She made a guest appearance by Minus Ted and their song: Riding Toward Albany. Unfortunately I can’t embed the video, so please click on the link to listen to Kathryn.

I also read that Kathryn wrote the lyrics to the song Maeve, also by Minus Ted.

Both songs are just amazing and just listen to them let me smile. Over Kathryn I found Minus Ted. That was the last music/group/singers which really caught me…completely. Okay, I also love Joshua Radin. He is my newest capture.

I ordered both of their CD’s (Hope & Damage revisited + really really) over CD Baby and I’m so happy with that music. It’s always on my little iPod.

And even though the shipping to Germany nearly cost me ten bucks, it was it worth. I got a so funny ordering mail, I want to share:

Your CDs have been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.

A team of 50 employees inspected your CDs and polished them to make sure they were in the best possible condition before mailing.

Our packing specialist from Japan lit a candle and a hush fell over the crowd as he put your CDs into the finest gold-lined box that money can buy.

We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of Portland waved "Bon Voyage!" to your package, on its way to you, in our private CD Baby jet on this day, Wednesday, March 18th.

I hope you had a wonderful time shopping at CD Baby. We sure did. Your picture is on our wall as "Customer of the Year." We're all exhausted but can't wait for you to come back to CDBABY.COM!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Sitting in her bathtub with her shower on
Listening to the water like rain
Small voices deep inside say carry on

With the rising steam her thoughts will fade
Seeing his face again
Disappointment standing black and white

More clear as thousand words could say
Submersing deeper with the head under the water
Humidity and lather commix

Everywhere is silence and she can’t breathe anymore
A flash hits her entry body
Eight years of friend- and partnership
She shouldn’t give away

Standing up in her bathroom with her robe on
Shuffling to her cuddly bed
Quiet hello in the receiver
With calm words they start from new


  1. Awwwwww, that song is lovely.
    Also loved the CD Baby comments. What a riot. I'll have to look Ted Minus up, never heard of him.

  2. Yes, please check out Minus Ted, I love them. And one of the singers is Skipp Sudduth...Third Watch. I love the gently guitar music and Riding Toward Albany is one of the best songs.

    I laughed to much as I got the email of CD Baby. Never got such a cute order mail before or after.

  3. I've heard Kathryn sing "Riding Toward Albany" on the web. She has a sweet voice.

    The people at CD Baby have an awesome sense of humor!!

  4. @Susan: oh yes Kathryn's voice is just awesome and I think I have to buy something more from CD Baby just to look if I get a new ordering mail.
