Prodigiously talented and criminally underrated; Kathryn is one of Scotland’s best-kept secrets.
Her voice possesses the other-worldly quality comparable to Ms Newsom and Björk; but she is by no means of an ilk. Better compared with Anthony Heggarty; she is an artist in every way; unique and soulful, and at the core a beautiful unnerving truth.
Winner of the 2015 Scottish Album of the Year Award with her debut Bones You Have Thrown Me, And Blood I’ve Spilled. As The Skinny put it:
There aren’t many albums that could come from such a desolate place as Bones You Have Thrown Me and Blood I’ve Spilled, to trump the major label likes of Paolo Nutini and Belle & Sebastian on a major award’s short list, but then there simply aren’t many artists quite like Kathryn Joseph; one of a kind, and so much more besides.
