Kathyrn Joseph with Jamie Flett and Amy Sawers, BAad, 19th March, 2017
“VERY SPECIAL INDEED” | Lauren Laverne, BBC Radio 6 Music
Kathryn Joseph released her debut album – bones you have thrown me and blood I’ve spilled – in January 2015. It quietly became much-loved among a keen-eared band of admirers, before a surge of critical acclaim culminated with it winning Scottish Album of the Year Award. A record eulogised within six months was born of years of low-key endeavour, when Kathryn was one of Scotland’s best-kept secrets; her gifts were revealed on her lyrically compelling, sonically vivid and consistently moving debut album.
The record also features the talents of Scottish music industry veteran Marcus Mackay: his percussion and bass synth entwine seamlessly with the graceful force of Kathryn’s ship’s piano and beguiling vocals. Their on-record partnership offers an understated but truly emotive encounter; rare performances on the live circuit are renowned for their visceral, mesmeric qualities. New collaborative projects have filled much of 2016 for Kathryn, including work with RM Hubbert, Fair Mothers and James Graham of The Twilight Sad.
