Roots singer Kim Richey has been a Fallen Angels Club favourite for many years, and has a wonderful back catalogue of songs.

Two-time Grammy-nominated Kim is a storyteller; a weaver of emotions and a tugger of heartstrings. Tender, poetic and aching with life’s truths, Kim’s songs transport you to her world, where words paint pictures and melodies touch the soul. And then there’s her voice. Pure, arresting and honest, it makes you take notice; Kim has the kind of voice where if emotions were ribbons, they’d be streaming in rainbow colours from your iPod.

Kim’s new album Edgeland moves her through the topography of the life lived by a woman committed to following her music. Flinching over hurting another, knowing the ways of the road, seeking higher ground and accepting the fact everyone’s truth isn’t a white picket fence, she continues defying labels as she defines the thinking person’s life.

“Right now, my stuff is all in storage,” she says of her state of constant motion. “I’ve lived in a lot of different places – different countries even. It’s a little overwhelming, keeping track of stuff, but it’s been an amazing trip because music has taken me places I never dreamed.

As well as being married, John McCusker and Heidi Talbot are two of the best-known names on the folk music scene.

They have been playing in each other’s bands, touring and writing songs together as well as recording on solo albums for ten years now.

Their schedules must be an annual challenge, so the news that they are to celebrate this decade of music making with their first duo EP is great – and even better that the five-track EP will be supported by an extensive UK and European tour in 2018.
