Kirsty moves between different styles of musical character and genre with an ease that compliments the modern age, her style has a prominent timeless quality, both ancient and refreshingly modern From Joni Mitchell to Bjork Kirsty is known for her bewitching voice and her striking lyrics are informed by her degree in literature and a nomadic existence as a travelling musician ...from playing classical guitar in an obscure and romantic way, to rock and electric.
