Kate Walsh

Kate Walsh has a really beautiful voice that is like silk in your ears. Along it are heartfelt lyrics and pleasant melodies accompanied by acoustic guitar and piano, with string arrangements.

A 26-year-old acoustic folk singer has been likened to Joni Mitchell and Kate Bush. Her first album was Clocktower Park, released in 2003 and was named for a meeting place in her hometown. In 2007, she released her second album, Tim’s House. It quickly became the No. 1 album on the UK iTunes Store knocking Take That off the top spot. Her third studio album, Light and Dark, was released in August 2009 and features Turin Brakes’ Olly Knights on two tracks.” [source]

You can find his entire discography for the lowest price right on his own web store.
