Lisa Canny is certainly an artist like no other. The Irish multi-instrumentalist unites traditional folk music with pop, R&B and electronica to make a sound that is completely unique. Proudly embracing her description as a “disgrace to the tradition,” Lisa Canny is a force to be reckoned with right now as evident on her new single. "Know It All" is a punchy and empowering track, filled with playful strings and dynamic vocals.
The rising talent has been working furiously under numerous projects, and now sees the release of her long-anticipated multidisciplinary EP project FOLK+, alongside her headline show at London’s Hoxton Hall and a fully-immersive FOLK+ launch experience at The Old Church on June 1st. Canny is at her absolute strongest in a live setting. Expect everything from hard-hitting, banjo-driven-bangers to looping-harp and 3-part harmony arrangements, to finally heart-wrenching acoustic ballads that feel descended from the songbooks of Laura Marling.
Discovered by Miles Copeland of CIA Records at a gig in LA, Canny was flown to France to ASCAPs Annual Songwriters Retreat to work with some of the industry's top artists, producers and songwriters. From there she signed her first publishing deal and, soon after, packed her bags for London. Last year alone saw Canny sell out London’s infamous Jazz Café, not to mention a 26-date European tour.
We are extremely excited to see what is next from the ever-evolving Lisa Canny.
