“Time and tide wait for no man”, so the saying goes. But ever since her EP Tide & Time came out in 2016, many have been waiting expectantly to hear Somerset singer songwriter Kitty Macfarlane’s debut album. The wait is finally over as she unveils the beguiling release Namer Of Clouds and a brand new live tour.
Her sharply observed narrative songs are pure poetry, rich with visual imagery and written with an eco-eye – woven loosely together into a theme of mankind’s relationship with the wild. Gathering inspiration from the sky to the seabed, Kitty’s lyrics touch on intervention and rewilding, climate change and migration and one singular song which is a magical aural tapestry of woman’s historical relationship with textiles and the land.
Kitty has toured with acclaimed folk duo Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman, and also Blair Dunlop, and performed extensively around the UK. She was shortlisted for the 'BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award' and has been awarded the 'Lyndsey de Paul Prize' for female songwriters.
