Canterbury: Emily Watts launches second EP All These Years at Gulbenkian with Jon Grayson and Abigail Hubbard

By Angela Cole

Influenced by the likes of Kate Bush, Bat For Lashes and Joni Mitchell, singer songwriter Emily Watts is in good company.

Her self-penned songs from her debut EP, From the Blue, have brought her a loyal following.

She's also ventured into writing for other artists, including co-writing Signs for Alex Maxwell with Alex and Gregor Philp of Deacon Blue, which was released on Hollywood Records/Polydor.

The EP includes three new tracks - Fires, Resting Place and the closing track, Island, and was produced by Daniel Moyler, who has worked on releases by JP Cooper, Rae Morris and Jake Isaac.

It was also recorded at the Neighbourhood Studio in London – the home of multi-platinum-selling band Athlete, and mastered at Metropolis Studios by Andy ‘Hippy’ Baldwin.

She will be joined in Canterbury on the night by special guests Jon Grayson and Abigail Hubbard.

Kent-based Jon recently released his own debut EP, Stranger, with a new single Cartoon set to be released in the spring.

Abigail Hubbard, from Whitstable, is a solo artist who collaborates tastes of trip-hop, jazz, folk and poetic verse.

The launch night will be at 8pm at the Gulbenkian on Friday, March 9. To book tickets at £7, visit thegulbenkian.co.uk, or call 01227 769075.
