Welsh/Bajan artist Kizzy Crawford releases double A-side single 'Gerridae' / 'Jungle' on Folkstock Records on 26th August 2016.
This release coincides with Kizzy becoming the youngest singer songwriter to have her work selected by the Welsh Joint Education Committee (WJEC) as set pieces for their A Level Music syllabus. A spokesperson said:
"WJEC is very pleased to be able to introduce the songs of Kizzy Crawford to our new A2 Music specification. It is hoped that students around Wales will take inspiration from her, as a young Welsh singer songwriter, and produce their own music, following in a great tradition of Welsh artists."
In the 2016/2017 syllabus, Kizzy's compositions 'Gerridae' and 'Jungle' will stand side by side with music by Gruff Rhys, Super Furry Animals and Manic Street Preachers. Reacting to the news Kizzy said:
“I feel honoured to be one of the set piece artists for WJEC, for my work to be considered of enough quality and importance to be included in the national curriculum is high praise for an artist, so it’s an honour.”
Kizzy is a live guest on Gaby Roslin’s BBC Radio London show on Sunday, 28th August at 4.15pm and is also on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour on Thursday, 1st September.
