About Kathleen

Performing since she was young, Kathleen Salsbury enjoyed studying Acting, Classical Voice, and French during her university years which included working and studying abroad in Paris and Montpellier, France. While at Baylor University, Kathleen studied with Director and Acting Professor Deborah Mogford. Upon graduation, she continued to work in theatre and studied acting with Howard Fine in Los Angeles. During this time, Kathleen began to write songs and produce albums of her music. She plays the piano and guitar and has shared her songs at various concert venues and churches. Kathleen often performs with her children (actors & singers) Lola, Chloe & Noah Salsbury Lipson. Her latest album A Sparrow's Call (released in 2016 and which features her daughters singing with her on the title track) is a collection of her new songs which she produced with composer and producer Fin Johnston. Kathleen and her children are currently collaborating on a children's album together.

Invited by Ms. Cynthia Munzer of the Met & USC and Dr. Gary Glaze (USC), Kathleen sang opera at the International Vocal Institute in Hvar, Croatia. A featured soloist, she performed in fully-staged opera and musical theatre scenes, singing in the Hvar Summer Music Festival at historic outdoor venues including The Hvar Heritage Museum, The Monastery, as well as the oldest public theatre in Europe, The Hvar Public Theatre. Kathleen continues to act and, most recently, filmed the USC graduate short film Clouds (directed by Justine Suh) with her eldest daughter Lola, and she played the mother in the video God Came Near filmed for Greg Laurie TV with Harvest Productions (directed by Austin Thompson). She continues to perform and sing for special events, including the National Anthem at the Santa Anita Racetrack, and has acted in commercials and projects for voice over, television, and film. Kathleen enjoys working with her children and serves with them in worship arts as well for church services at a local retirement home. She lives in the Los Angeles area with her husband Adam Lipson and their three children.
