Upcoming: Lisa Knapp - Hidden Seam

Lisa KnappLisa Knapp first emerged in 2007 with her debut album, Wild And Undaunted and quickly established herself as a highly distinctive, creative artist, merging a radiant style of traditional folk and self-penned song with vocal, fiddle, hammer dulcimer, strings, banjo and contemporary production.

The South Londoner's much anticipated 2nd full length album, Hidden Seam, is due for release by Navigator Records on 16th September 2013.

Lisa has spent the years between albums exploring her increasing fascination with the elements and our fragile, volatile environment. Though greatly inspired by husband/musical partner Gerry Diver's own creative journey with his 2011 Speech Project album (music based on the speech patterns of Irish traditional singers), Lisa was equally motivated by a love of language - partly through a meeting with Seamus Heaney and a healthy obsession with the old English text of Beowulf.

Hidden Seam will be reviewed on these pages, closer to the release date, but for now have a listen to the title track.
