Label: Goldflower Music

Bio: Kimwei’s unusual approach to composition sets her apart from any other singer/songwriter in the UK today. Her songs are distinctive, and feature a level of musicality that is rarely heard in the present musical landscape – from her sweeping vocal lines to a vast array of inventive and unique ways...

"Kimwei performs her own material and accompanies her warm vocal tones with some of the meanest acoustic guitar playing you're likely to witness on the UK circuit... Utilising various open tunings, and the whole of her guitar in a style that evokes the techniques of the late, great Michael Hedges and current big noise Newton Faulkner. Exeter-based, Kimwei cajoles sounds out of her instrument that have had some audience members questioning whether some sort of electronic wizardry is helping her to achieve the sound that she creates. But it's all done with one acoustic guitar, one pair of hands and one very imaginative approach that opens up a whole new world of sound."
