Description

Raised in the East Yorkshire flatlands on the fringes of Hull, Katie Spencer's landscape has always been that of open skies and widening rivers. Industry still shapes the city here. The people, as with the land, are moulded by tides and stark horizons. Stand in the same place for long enough and you can watch the sun rise over the North Sea and then sink into crop fields, glowing auburn in late-summer sun. It is this sense of space and movement that flows through Katie Spencer's music. Lila Tristram is a musician, writer and artist based in London. She is a graduate of Goldsmiths University, one of the leading universities for the Arts in the UK. Characterised by melancholic fingerpicking, warm and intimate vocal harmonies, a weaving of bucolic British landscapes, Nordic influences and lunar overtones, the songs which define Lila Tristram's emergence are a journey to the depths of human longing and belonging.
