Description

'Carr is a fine example of that much-maligned beast we call authenticity... never less than immaculate.' - Sunday Times Cultue Magazine.

'Concept album of the Year' (Katy Carr's Paszport 2012) The Guardian.

Katy Carr's sixth studio album Providence was inspired initially by a dream sequence that the award-winning singer songwriter remembers upon waking. Themes around water - including songs about taking in Hampstead's Ladies' Pond and miracles on the River Vistula - good versus evil, fighting for freedom as well as love and death are explored.

The new album creates the third and final chapter in her Polish roots rediscovery trilogy initiated by her fourth album, 'Paszport' (2012). Katy believes that the people she has met along the way have been linked through providence and that her experiences have been synchronised through fate.

For nearly a decade, Carr has been making in-roads to rediscover the land of her mother's birth, Poland - learning the Polish language and history of a rich and diverse heritage. Underlying this Polish mission has been her personal quest to understand her own family's inter-generational trauma from both a British and Polish WWII experience. This has resulted in family estrangement and led her to develop a songwriting and performance career.
