Kitty MacFarlane

The Big Club

Friday

Kitty is a songwriter and guitarist from Somerset, whose music is rich with visual imagery and written with an eco-eye.

From the starling murmurations on the Somerset Levels to the lowly eel's epic transatlantic migration, and the small part we ourselves play in a much bigger picture, her songs are bound by the underlying theme of mankind's relationship with the wild.

Kitty’s debut album, Namer Of Clouds (produced by Sam Kelly and Jacob J Stoney), gathers inspiration from the sky to the seabed.

Carried by a voice 'as clear as a mountain stream' (FRUK), her lyrics touch on intervention and rewilding, climate change and migration, and woman’s historical relationship with textiles and the land.

The album is augmented by all kinds of ‘found sound’ recorded in locations from Somerset to Sardinia – birdsong, waterfalls, the click of knitting needles - and bookended by sounds of the wild.
