About All Together
San Diego Musicians & History
Every All Together song was written by native San Diegan Kathryn Cloward and includes contributions from talented San Diego-based music professionals and youth. (Scroll down for credits.) Co-Producer Daniel Fritz was introduced to Kathryn through San Diego's humble hero Father Joe Carroll (1941-2021) while Kathryn wrote Father Joe's memoir for him and a children's book and song in his honor. Kathryn the Grape is rooted in decades of San Diego history, especially as her signature purple outfit is a replica of her childhood tracksuit purchased from the original Saint Vincent de Paul Thrift Store (Father Joe's Villages).

All Together is a children’s music album with a strong, empowering theme about the importance of mental health and self-care. Filled with dance-happy, life-affirming songs, All Togethers makes a wonderful addition to family, school and public library children’s music collections. Highly recommended!
