Following the release of her country-imbued single ‘Predictable’, and a duo of positively received sets at Europe’s biggest country music festival C2C, Glaswegian singer-songwriter Kerri Watt will return to London to play at The Troubadour on May 15th.

‘Irresistible good time music’- W21 Music

Kerri will be accompanied by her distinguished band at The Troubadour, where they will play a mixture of material from her critically acclaimed debut album ‘Neptune’s Daughter’, along with previews of some freshly penned music, including her most recent single. Supporting Kerri will be indie singer-songwriter and Bob Harris’ ‘Americana Emerging Artist of the Year 2024’, Jonny Morgan.

“It feels like a great time to be back doing a headline show”, said Kerri. “There’s so much material between the album and all the new music that’s coming that I’ve been dying to play live with a band! Expect some throwbacks, some fresh sounds and great support from AMA winner Jonny Morgan. The Troubadour is a legendary venue that so many of my heroes have played so it’s going to be a special night!” 

Over the past couple of years, Kerri’s life as an artist changed dramatically when she became a mother. With touring off the table for a while, Kerri began writing for the big screen and is currently developing an original musical animation with Timeless Films. In 2023, Kerri also became an official ‘Song Suffragette’ in Nashville – a collective that supports and champions female songwriters. (Fellow suffragettes include Kelsea Ballerini & Lainey Wilson.) Kerri went on to host a rare Song Suffragettes show in London at The Camden Club last summer.

At home on stage, Kerri has opened for the likes of Coldplay and Celine Dion, and performed in some of the most iconic venues, from The Royal Albert Hall to The London Palladium, and Cambridge Folk Fest. Her 2021 debut album ‘Neptune’s Daughter’, with its delicate musings on love and life garnered the attention of Bob Harris, the AMA UK and Keith Urban – with whom she duetted.

Having been heavily inspired by Sheryl Crow and Van Morrison, Kerri creates songs that captivate and inspire in their wise, vulnerable interpretations of the world around her. Though hailing from Glasgow, she spent time in the States as a teenager, where exposure to American music heavily informed her sonic palette. There, she was introduced to a world of blues, gospel, country and folk that felt worlds away from her Scottish roots. This scrapbook of musical influences permeates her diaristic approach to songwriting – now furthered with a whole-hearted embrace of country.
