About:

London-based Kirsty Merryn is one of the most arresting and unconventional new singer-songwriters with a style uniquely her own. Beguiling and mercurial, Kirsty's music is emphatic piano-based songs heavily anchored in the folk tradition, but has a much wider reach, with influences ranging from Cara Dillon to Joni Mitchell. Her lyrics are sharply observed, packaged with panache in elegant, beautifully balanced settings, and delivered in crystal clear, assured vocals. Kirsty has been championed by Show of Hands' frontman Steve Knightley after he met her while teaching at an EFDSS songwriting retreat for upcoming folk singer-songwriters and she went on to open for Show of Hands at their headline appearance at Sidmouth Folk Week in 2016, and supported them over the 22 nights of their Cathedrals tour of the UK at the end of 2017, performing to around 14,000 people along the way.

“Kirsty Merryn is a folk singer and composer of extraordinary
Skill...destined to be a big star” Sunday Express
