Lovely comments from Rebsie about my music

Wasn’t that fab? That was Katy Carr, who is another artist, who is new to me I’m ashamed to say cuz she has been releasing albums since 2001. I came across her this week in a review in The Guardian. We’re all Guardian reading types around here, don’t you know? And I mentioned her to the epi Gibbon and he reckons he’s got her first couple of albums and that he’s had them for years and years. But as far as I know, he’s never played her on the show. So I thought I would rectify that. She’s got a brand new album that’s just come out. It’s her first in five years. I haven’t got a copy of it yet. I’ve got it on order. So in the meantime, I’m playing that track and another one later in the show, from her previous album Polonia, an album in which she explores her Polish heritage. And according to the sleevenotes it aims to promote the long standing deep friendship between Britain and Poland, one threatened by present political and social prejudices. The track you just heard was called Mr. Trebus. And we’ll be returning to the album later on in the show.

And just prior to that, you heard My Beloved General by Katy Carr from her album Polonia, which came out in 2015. And that too, is available on Bandcamp. But if you want a signed copy of the CD, then you can get that directly from Katy’s website shop. She describes herself as a singer, performer, songwriter, and aviator. She’s also writing a rather nice horse in the cover artwork that I’ve got here. She’s a fabulous songwriter. And her songs often draw upon genuine historic characters, My Beloved General being the story of a Polish war hero who ended up working in a bar in Edinburgh. So you get plenty of interesting stories as well as great music. And as I said earlier, she’s just released a new album called Providence. And hopefully I’ll be able to play something from that on my next guest slot on this show.

    I’m thrilled that you enjoyed the show, Katy. It was a pleasure to play your songs and help to get the word out. You have a rare talent for writing foot-tapping catchy songs which are very original and have loads of character. Nobody else is making music quite like yours and you have every reason to be proud of it. I’m sure we’ll be playing more of it in future.
