NEHH: Kathryn Joseph + Siobhan Wilson
Nothing Ever Happens Here... Presents
The haunting and utterly compelling Scottish Album of the Year ‘bones you have thrown me and blood I’ve spilled’ comes to Summerhall’s Dissection Room. Regarded as one of Scotland’s best-kept secrets; Kathryn Joseph’s voice possesses the other-worldly quality of Joanna Newsom and Björk. Lyrically compelling and sonically stunning and with a deep unnerving truth at its core, the album is a beautiful record of heartbreak and loss, punctuated with Joseph’s darkly gothic and honest lyrics.
Echoes of great artists such as Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush and Nina Simone can be heard in Siobhan’s songs. Siobhan says of her own distinct style ‘I use my voice differently to many other artists, I’m not that interested in fashion and am more timeless.’ Siobhan has been making waves on the indie-folk scene for a couple of years having played to packed venues such as Edinburgh’s Queens Hall and Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall, played several major festivals (Cambridge Folk Festival, Wickerman, Belladrum, Celtic Connections), and supported the likes of Ben E King, Justin Currie, Eddie Reader, Sophie Ellis Bextor, and Idlewild.
"From truly sorrowful beginnings, Kathryn Joseph has crafted one of the year's most raw, unflinching and remarkable records"
"Very, very special indeed"
