5th October 2013

Since her 2002 Mercury Music Prize nomination, Kathryn Williams has gone from strength to strength, releasing a string of  acclaimed albums that have confirmed her as an extraordinary talent within the singer/songwriter genre.

Kathryn Williams famously made her debut album Dog Leap Stairs for £80 on her own label Caw Records. Her follow up album, Little Black Numbers, was made for a grand total of £3000. It went on to be nominated for a Mercury Music prize in 2000. Kathryn sold 40,000 records from her bedroom and landed a three album deal with Warner Brothers label East West.  Kathryn made two further albums on the East West label.

The critically acclaimed Old Low Light, and the well received timeless covers album, Relations. Her next two albums were released on Caw Records, The more electric Over Flyover and Leave to Remain with arrangements by Kate St John. Kathryn’s 10th studio album Crown Electric will be released by Caw Records/One Little Indian in the last quarter of 2013.

Citing her influences as Nina Simone, Nick Drake, John Lennon, Joni Mitchell, The Velvet Underground and Stevie Smith, her restrained, sometimes spartan arrangements gradually reveal complex and beautiful songs of great emotional depth and intelligence.
