Kizzy Crawford

Merthyr Tydfil’s kizzy meriel crawford has achieved a lot already. every once in a long while, an artist of such natural, effortless musicality and poise emerges, that those of us who work day in, day out at the coalface, seeking new and interesting music-makers, just have to stand back and salute the heavens. she won the arts connect original singer-songwriter prize in 2012. she has performed live in front of hundreds of thousands on welsh t.v., played at womex when it was hosted in cardiff in 2013, and released a critically lauded debut e.p., ‘the starling’, that became a mainstay of the bbc radio wales and bbc radio cymru playlists.

kizzy’s prodigious songwriting ability naturally fuses disparate genres (folk / soul / jazz) and brings something genuine, fresh and exciting to the musical landscape. think joan armatrading sings john martyn, but then think again, because no simple soundbite can sum up kizzy’s music.
