Bio

A Welsh speaker with Bajan heritage, seventeen year old Kizzy Crawford's solo career began just two years ago. In that time, Kizzy has developed an increasing sophistication to her songwriting and performance, this is complimented by her soaring voice that boasts both range and charisma.

Kizzy won the Brwydr Y Bandiau at the National Eisteddfod 2013 She also won a Welsh Singer-Songwriter competition receiving money to record her first EP release with Amy Wadge (signed to BDI Music and Ed Sheeran/Lewis Watson co-writer).

Kizzy recently played at the National Assembly for Wales during WOMEX, London Jazz Festival supporting Sarah Gillespie, Swn Festival, Hay Festival, the Plaid Cymru Conference and has supported Gruff Rhys, Newton Faulkner on the Welsh dates of his tour.

She has recently signed a publishing deal with BDI/Bucks music and is recording new material for release late summer. Kizzy has also won BBC Horizons artist of the year, which sees her playing various BBC events and radio sessions including a Maida Vale session this autumn.
