Keeley Forsyth is a composer, singer and actor from Oldham in the north-west of England.
Built upon sparse arrangements, Forsyth’s music is centred around a singular, emotionally raw and magnetic vocal delivery, by turns devastating and uplifting. The characters who populate her songs tell stories of the high and low tides; of freedom and entrapment, of hard-won triumphs and the darker corners of domestic life. Over the last years Keeley has built a reputation for dramatically captivating live performances reflecting her interests in contemporary theatre, dance and movement.
Forsyth’s album Debris is one of the most remarkable in years”
The Sunday Times
“Debris is an astonishing debut, not just for the power of the songs, but for the journey they trace”
“A shivery descendent of Scott Walker’s Tilt, a more unsettling older sister of Aldous Harding’s Designer”
“Her voice is a spectacular thing: a cut-glass vibrato that brings to mind ANOHNI, or the unearthly tremble of late-period Scott Walker”
“Nobody else is making music, so spectral, elegant and bruised, quite like this”
9/10, Loud & Quiet
“Keeley Forsyth is a world builder and Limbs is an outstanding record”
