Description

Folk singer/songwriter Katy Carr's beautiful, romantic fourth album, 'Paszport', is an epic, poetic journey through her past and that of her mother's nation, Poland. It's a tight indie-folk record that explores themes of love, refugee status, loss of passport, country, resistance, hope against adversity and patriotism.

Dedicated to the Polish World War Two experience, the album was inspired by Kazik Piechowski who escaped from Aushwitz in the camp commandant's car in 1942 dressed in an SS uniform. It tackles areas and issues in Poland's history that have been long considered too politically sensitive for open discussion.

Drawing on all her influences and performances in the British vintage scene Carr has recruited musicians from a wide variety of backgrounds. They include Klezmer cellist Francesca Ter-Berg, classical and gypsy violinist Flora Curzon; and Klezmer, Egyptian and Eastern European percussionist Guy Schalom.

In 2012 Katy Carr was nominated for the London Music Award, alongside Kate Bush, PJ Harvey and the Arctic Monkeys, and also for The National Lottery Awards for her Arts Council-funded 'Escapologist Tour'. The video for the single from the album, "Kommander's Car", has already generated over 43,000 playss on Youtube.
