Album Notes
VOTED ALBUM OF THE YEAR in Motif Magazine's 2009 Music Awards, "Nos Mots" (Our Words) began its life in 2004 as a five song demo entitled "Pas de Deux," at first intended to be called "Vos Mots" (Your Words).

Kari recorded those first pop songs in Paris in July of that year, the music for which was based on poems written by two French friends. Upon her return from France, she also wrote a song, and then added another two, one of which she'd written and translated to French, using a poem by her husband. And so it became OUR WORDS.

Next followed some classical duets for violin and piano, and one of the original songs was reworked using a string trio and French horn, and finally, a very eclectic album indeed was born.

Kari has assembled a team of gifted musicians over the past 10 years, and this just may be her finest effort yet.

Decisive and confident about her music
Kari Tieger - Nos Mots
Described as about “one-third pop, two-thirds classical,” this album features original compositions written since 2001 by Rhode Island-based pianist/singer Kari Tieger. Mostly sung in French, the songs feature lyrics from Kari’s collaborators Aline Duran, Catherine Rousseau, Zao, and Ollie Brennan. Besides Kari’s keyboards, instrumental accompaniment tastes provide guitar, accordion, drums, bass, violin, mandolin, cello, viola, French horn, and flute. A 12-page CD booklet includes all lyrics including English translations) for the songs. Kari’s MySpace page indicates that she’s a Scorpio (with her moon in Taurus), and her earthy nature is plainly revealed in her songs. There’s no question that her latest album is an endeavor that was well worth her effort and vigilance. Her time, talent and energy have resulted in a successful album that proves she’s decisive and confident about her music. (Joe Ross, Joshua Tree, CA)

I'm not a French speaker, but I absolutely adore "Nos Mots". Kari's vocals and musical arrangements are fabulous. Even though I cannot understand a word, "J'ai Dans La Tete" makes me want to swoon, because the vocals and the music are so evocative. I particularly love the instrumentals - "Sonate D'Automne" is gorgeous. Throughout the CD, the sound production is perfection and the digipak is outstanding. This is a work of art!

J\'adore ces chansons!
Depuis une semaine, je ne cesse d\'ecouter \"Nos Mots\" chez moi. Les compositions sont eceltiques, dans le meilleur sens du mot. Et la voix et l\"interpretation de Kari me rappelle tout ce qui est excellent dans la ta grande tradition des chansonniers et des chansonnieres. Quelle decouverte heureuse! C\'est formidable! Frissons de Brel, de Frida Boccara de Claude Gauthier et tant d\'autres artistes/poetes. Merci Karu et continues a nous interpreter plus de ces belles chansons!
