Kathryn Williams - 11 December 2010
supported by Stephanie Schneiderman

Artist's website:

Kathryn Williams first came into the public eye when her second album ‘Little Black Numbers’ was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize. It was Independent Album of the Month, "Sheer Perfection" (The Times), who described her as "one of the most exciting new songwriters to emerge for a along time."

Since then she has produced a string of excellent albums, and last record ‘Leave to Remain’ was described by Word magazine as ‘emotional stealth bombing at its most devastating’, and "Beautiful and intense - her best album yet” - The Observer.

Stephanie Schneiderman has made six solo albums, two collaborative albums, three music production credits on a internationally acclaimed children’s video, several film and stage roles and the creation of a wildly successful concert series to benefit refugees in Uganda.

Yes, trying to pin down Stephanie Schneiderman to any one genre, talent or discipline is next to impossible. And while Stephanie’s latest effort, her sixth solo released called Dangerous Fruit, retains the rootsy flair, distinctive vocals and intricate songwriting that along with her work with popular regional act, Dirty Martini - have solidified her as one of the NW’s premier artists, the album also, unsurprisingly, launches her sound in a completely new, uncharted direction.

Pop/rock that showcases stunning, sultry, soulful vocals with production that is textured, blending roots in jazz, soul and pop. Imagine Nora Jones on tour with The Beatles somewhere in Texas.
