Lisa Knapp: Till April is Dead
One of the most inventive and creative artists around, Lisa Knapp pushes boundaries with her radiant interpretation of traditional folk music. Her vocals reel you in, “cool and pure like iced water, edged with a menace and strength” (The Guardian). Her most recent album Till April is Dead gathered many five-star reviews.
Melding together some of the most beautiful, strange and beguiling ‘May’ songs inspired by weird and wonderful happenings across Britain, alongside folklore hailing from here and distant shores, and beautiful folk songs of love and loss.
“…Knapp’s voice throughout is a revelation, both pure and wild... Cuckoos, whirring clocks and buzzing flies add extra layers to this fascinating soundworld, on an album overflowing with warmth, light and waywardness.” The Guardian 5*
