New Band of the Day #63: Lisa Knapp

lisa knapp

Lisa’s third album Til April is Dead – A Garland of May Songs is due for release by Ear to the Ground Records on 28th April 2017.

Who: Lisa Knapp is a British folk signer

What: Alternative folk (FFO: Björk, Sandy Denny, Lisa Hannigan)

Where: A South Londoner, England.

Why: Folk music is currently where the most innovative and fresh ideas are coming out of in my opinion, and Lisa is a radiant example of this.

Lisa’s latest album is innovative and bursting with new ideas. The album features eleven startlingly original versions of traditional songs. Lisa merges strings, fiddle with birdsong and sonic to produce a resplendent new interpretation of traditional folk.

This is Lisa’s 3rd album, following her two previous releases Wild and Undaunted and Hidden Seam. Both albums shook up the British folk scene and achieved critical acclaim in the process. If you’re a fan of fine instrumental work, acrobatic vocals and songs that twist and turn more than Richard Kelly’s Donnie Darko, then she will be for you.
