Terra Kin, “child of the earth”, hailing from Glasgow defines themself as a “weird little creature”. A love for jazz, lo-fi beats, ambient and folk music paired with a soft soulful voice collides into something she finds hard to genre bind. Terra considers everything to be fluid and aims to convey that both visually and sonically.
After a chance encounter on Instagram, Terra Kin featured as vocalist on the Fred Again track ‘Hannah (the sun)’ joining him on stage several times at his spectacular live shows to perform the song. Their intimate and immersive live show has not only sown the seeds of a devoted fan base, but has seen them invited to support Rachel Chinouriri, Kokoroko, Macey Gray and Pip Millet and Charlie Burg among others.
Terra Kin’s debut EP ‘Too Far Gone’ was released on Island Records in late 2022 to significant acclaim. Enough indeed that she was crowned BBC Introducing Scottish Act Of The Year in March this year, silencing the room at the awards ceremony with a rendition of ‘Flames’ from her EP and a beguiling cover of ‘It Must Be Love’.
With a stellar summer festival schedule that includes The Great Escape, TRNSMT, Connect, BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend and Boardmasters plus new music dropping this summer, it’s easy to see why the name Terra Kin in on the tip of many tongues as one to watch for 2023.
