Singer-songwriter Cléa Knight has been making a name for herself busking her melody-infused Folk/Pop around the city centre of Leeds.
Cléa has been writing poetry from a young age. Inspired by her fellow female classmates rock band, she picked up a guitar and started putting her poetry to music. Her distinctive lyricism and classic folk voice quickly led to recognition from the LIPA Make It Break It Awards and airplay on BBC Introducing, North Yorkshire.
From there Cléa has played iconic Leeds venues such as the Brudenell Social Club and the Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall, having been invited to perform support slots for prestigious acts such as Marcus Foster, members of Fairport Convention and blues legends Rick Franklin and Sonny Black.
Being inspired by artists like Kate Rusby, Tracy Chapman and Alanis Morisette, her lyrics draw heavily on literature and folklore, with a strong visual sensibility, which she uses to unique effect.
All three EPs in the pocket series are now available from itunes. She is now working on some exciting new releases.
