Watch List: You Will Be Enchanted By Kizzy Crawford's 'Shout Out'
As well as providing the production and songwriting polish for some of the brightest stars in the musical firmament, Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, One Direction, Paloma Faith and Christina Perri) also welcomes emerging artists to showcase their talents at his Sticky Studios, with recent invitees including Next2Shine favorites Taylor Berrett and Ady Suleiman. You can now add Kizzy Crawford to that list; a supremely talented 18-year-old Welsh singer/songwriter of Bajan heritage - who performs both in her native language as well as in English - Crawford caught our attention on YouTube a few years ago with the sensitive, maturely poised beauty of her articulate vocals and the precocious confidence of her intuitive musicality and thoughtful lyricism, and has been making musical strides in the time since.
Lauded by various BBC Radio DJ's, Crawford was chosen as a BBC Horizons Artist Of The Year and has graced the Glastonbury stage for BBC Introducing, while also performing at other noted festivals such as the London Jazz Festival, Cheltenham Jazz Festival and the Hay Festival. Blending acoustic, folk, jazz and soul influences to create her distinctive sound, Crawford here sits down for her 'Sticky Session' to showcase the irresistible charm of her effortlessly captivating talent with an enchanting live rendition of her song 'Shout Out', which is featured in the 2015 Visit Wales TV and online advertising campaign.
