Kizzy Crawford1 Short Info

A Welsh speaker with Bajan heritage, Eighteen year old Kizzy Crawford's solo career began just two years ago. In that time, Kizzy has developed an increasing sophistication to her songwriting and performance, which is complimented by her soaring voice that boasts both range and charisma.

Kizzy won the 'Brwydr Y Bandiau' at the National Eisteddfod 2013. She also won a Welsh Singer-Songwriter competition receiving money to record her first EP 'Temporary Zone' with Amy Wadge (signed to BDI Music and Ed Sheeran/Lewis Watson co-writer).
