Summer Virtual Concert Series: Astrid Williamson
Streamed Live on June 25, 2021
Astrid Williamson is a founding member of respected UK indie trio Goya Dress – their debut album Rooms was produced by rock legend John Cale. She has been compared to artists such as Joni Mitchell, Kristin Hersch and John Martyn, but Williamson’s artistry is distinctive in its own right. Her hauntingly beautiful voice creates vividly intelligent emotional landscapes in her confessional song writing.
Since her career began in 1994, Shetland-born Williamson has released six solo albums and collaborated with various artists, including Johnny Marr & Bernard Sumner (Electronic), Arthur Baker, Steroephonics, This Mortal Coil/Hope Blister and Lisa Gerrard (Dead Can Dance).
“Her vocal delivery approaches John Martyn levels of emotional impact….avoid ‘Scattered’, it will tear you to pieces.”The Sunday Times on We Go To Dream (2015)
