Description

The Bird Who Sings Freedom is the debut album by Georgia Lewis, who has been hailed as the best voice to emerge from the English folk scene in recent years. Well-worn traditional songs sit alongside two Lewis originals, an AE Housman poem and, opening the album, a setting of the words of Maya Angelou. Throughout, Lewis seeks the timeless themes in old words. Stories of love and loss, conflict, betrayal. Produced by Lewis with Josh Clark (Kate Rusby's Life In A Paper Boat), the album features musicians including percussionist Evan Carson (Sam Kelly & the Lost Boys) and Tom Sweeney alongside longtime bandmates Rowan Piggott and Felix Miller. The Bird Who Sings Freedom is a glorious cocktail of modern folk influences, a potent statement of intent and a first glimpse at a burgeoning talent who looks set to put her stamp on English folk music.
