Solo folk artist and witch pop pioneer Shannon Pearl has spent the past few years blazing quite the trail with her innovative and enthralling approach to her craft. From her debut EP Caves, an entirely a capella collection of songs which found her harnessing the powerful natural reverb of actual caves, through to her recent experimental sound art collection Ghosts, which found her relying solely on vocal loops, spare percussion and found sound, Shannon has firmly established that she’s the kind of artist who is unafraid to challenge herself.

All this daring and innovative boundary pushing has culminated in her debut LP, Kiss The Ground, a sprawling 10 track collection which further stakes Shannon’s status as one of the most singular and refreshing artists the region has produced in recent years, with recent single Celestial being a staggering embodiment of her unique approach to the craft. In honour of the album’s release, she’ll be embarking on a tour with a six-piece band to capture the album’s broad and rich sound. The tour takes in a very fitting appearance at the Lindisfarne Festival (Friday 1st September), bookended by a homecoming show at Sunderland’s Independent on Friday 29th September.

Shannon Pearl releases Kiss The Ground on 21st June.
