Kaitie Ty Warren’s own vocal journey has taken her through decades of theatre work, singing, speech and public performance. While living and performing in LA, she found the Goldenbridge Community Choir, an Ubuntu Choir, which changed her entire outlook on music – and relationship with her voice. After moving to the Bay Area in 2015, the lessons and music she had learned at Goldenbridge stayed with her. She began inviting friends over to sing in the living room – a practice that quickly became a recurring, and expanding, weekly singing circle. In 2016 she was certified with the Ubuntu Choirs Network in Victoria, BC. In March of 2017, inspired by her father's struggles and after years of being involved with Yoga for Parkinson’s, Kaitie formed a Parkinson’s group voice class called Be Heard! She is especially passionate about restoring voice to people who have lost their connection to it, and to their community in turn. Kaitie grew up adjacent to the Deaf community and uses American Sign Language in her work as well. Bridging the gap between languages and cultures, and learning what we can enjoy together through making music together, is an important part of her work. Kaitie is dedicated to creating safe, communal spaces for humans of all ages to play and get silly together. She writes and performs her own music, has recorded four audiobooks, and writes prose mostly for pleasure.
