Review: Kate Stapley – Centella

There aren’t many artists who describe staging a rebellion as playing folk music in Camden. But Kate Stapley is not your run of the mill artist. She is due to be on stage at The Louisiana Bristol three times on the same night this Saturday 26th May with three different acts!

Bristol based Kate Stapley released her debut EP Centella earlier this year and received plaudits from BBC 6 Music and Bristol Live Magazine. Centella opens with the beautifully melancholy ‘Iceland’, a story of Kate’s own depression and how her friends trip to Iceland compared to her own feelings.

Kate’s voice has a way of grabbing your emotion and ensnaring you with her vivid storytelling.

Kate has a fascinating approach to her songwriting, drawing on her family experiences and using dementia to not only write about, but also influencing the songs arrangement.

Centella is a compelling debut release with themes that almost everyone can relate to from difficult to happy memories.

Standout Tracks: Iceland, Potted History of Mum, These Planets

Centella is out now at the usual outlets but why not get it direct from Breakfast Records on CD or Cassette
