Kim Edgar - Held
Cat. no: QFM005
Release Date: 11th December 2020
Fuelled by a passion for social justice, folklore, and feminism, Kim Edgar crafts keenly observed details of people’s lives into powerful, understated songs that reach out and touch listeners.
Whether that’s the uncertainty of a person grappling with whether love truly conquers all, the bewildering feelings of invisibility of a child in a refugee camp, or the unfettered hopes of a mother for her unborn baby, Kim steps in the shoes of others, exploring contemporary social issues with an open heart. Her fourth solo album, Held, considers grief, addiction, and solidarity.
“[Kim Edgar] will charm you, upset you, give you hope and make you think... probably one of the best songwriters in Britain today.” ***** Spiral Earth
“Intense and thought provoking” The List. “Heart stopping...our very own Tori Amos” Sunday Herald. “An inspired empathy” ***** Fringe Review.
