Liverpool born singer-songwriter Kathryn Williams, who was shortlisted for the 2000 Mercury Music Prize, will be in concert at the Platform in Morecambe on Friday February 23.
Her best-known work is characterised by rich and honest song writing, inspired by the greats – from Nick Drake to Joni Mitchell and beyond – and she has continually evolved as an artist by looking outside of genre boundaries.
From dusty Americana to playful jazz re-workings, and so much more, every Williams record burns with a meticulousness and an honesty that casts a spell all of her own making.
Kathryn has released 11 full-length albums under her own name since her debut LP, Dog Leap Stairs, was released in 1999 via her own CAW Records label.
As impressive a stat as that might be, it does little to capture the true magic of Williams work; the enchanting craft that has grown and expanded as she’s moved from one project to the next, from the breakthrough success of her Mercury Prize nominated ‘Little Black Numbers’ LP all the way to her Sylvia Plath tribute project.
Her latest album is another non-conventional piece of work from an artist that continues to listen and learn from the greats while, at the same time, undoubtedly becoming one herself; approaching her 20th anniversary with a fiery spirit and a sense of adventure that has never once wilted.
The show starts at 7.30 pm and tickets, priced at £14, are available from www.lancaster.gov.uk/platform or the box office on 01524 582803.
