Kathleen Yearwood : voix, guitare électrique

KATHLEEN YEARWOOD embodies the archetype of the maverick artist who remains true to herself come hell or high water, turning down any form of compromise. Now in her early sixties, she shows no sign of changing in that respect.

YEARWOOD first made a mark in the late 1980s as a folk singer in Western Canada, as the frontwoman of the Albertan group Cheval De Guerre. Following the release of her first solo album (in 1991), she started to aim for something different: her lyrics grew heavier with social thoughts, and her compositions began to include noisy improvisations. Her voice also changed, stepping away from her Joan Baez-like timbre to occasionally creeping closer to Keijo Haino’s primal screams.

Since her last performance at FIMAV (a “smashing” concert in 1999), YEARWOOD released several striking records, among them a collection of traditional folk songs (À la Claire Fantôme, 2013), the two-part This Guitar Is Wrecked (2017), and the EP Requiem/Dies Irae: World in Ashes (2018), a deeply mature work.

KATHLEEN YEARWOOD’s universe is powerful, gripping, and as unique as they come.
