Kirsty Merryn

About

New Forest born singer songwriter Kirsty Merryn tells stories of boxing champions, forgotten heroines and frozen winters. She has become a regular on London’s folk scene, delighting the crowds with her delicately introspective piano based songs and sophisticated musical style, which are balanced beautifully by an intimate and finely observational lyrical content. Kirsty was recently listed in Buzzfeed’s ’34 Brilliant British Songwriters To Discover’. In 2015 she completed her first UK tour and is working on her second record, produced by award-winning Gerry Diver (Sam Lee, Lisa Knapp, The Speech Project), which will be released in 2016.

To support the production of the new EP Kirsty will soon be launching a kickstarter.
