"Real talent" Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1 "Wonderful" Richard Coles, BBC Radio 4
"A star in the making. Not only a great songwriter but also an experienced, polished performer." Stereoboard
"She's overflowing with a comfortable self-confidence and has every right to be" Big Issue
A Welsh speaker with Bajan heritage, 20 year old Kizzy Crawford's solo career began just a few years ago. In that time, Kizzy has developed an increasing sophistication to her songwriting and performance, which is complimented by her soaring voice that boasts both range and charisma.
Her ambition as a black Welsh artist is to make her mark by fusing bilingual soul-folk jazz and she's already getting recognition for her work with airplay on BBC Radio 1, BBC 6Music, BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio Wales, BBC Radio Cymru as well as live TV performances on S4C, Children in Need for BBC 1 and the 6 Nations advert campaign. 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 'Temporary Zone' with Amy Wadge (Ed Sheeran 'Thinking Out Loud' co-writer).
