It's always great catching up with Welsh electronic artist Kelly Lee Owens.
Her second studio album Inner Song was released in August 2020 to largely four and five star reviews from several major publications.
Kelly wrote and recorded the album after what she considered to be the hardest three years of her life. Ahead of its release she spoke to us about that time and how it was permeated with loss and grief with the death of her grandmother Jeanette, who she was very close to.
As well as a cover of Radiohead’s Weird Fishes/Arpeggi, it features vocals from The Velvet Underground’s John Cale on the track Corner of My Sky - with the album already starting to appear on some albums of the year lists by the likes of Uncut and Rough Trade where it’s number 28 in its top 100.
I checked in with her for BBC 6 Music and she revealed she’s been busy this year with her first foray into soundtrack work...
