Local indie folk singer-songwriter Kaleigh Watts is set to release her second album ‘Hung Me Dry’ on May 21st, 2017 with a performance at LIVE On Elgin. Watts will be accompanied by double bassist Caleb Smith and drummer Alexy Guérer. Sibling duo Mack and Ben (formerly Monday I Retire) will be opening the evening.
‘Hung Me Dry’ is a collection of songs composed during and inspired by Watts’ five years living in the city of Ottawa; a memory of a mid-sized metropolis.
Kaleigh Watts is a Canadian musician and songwriter, born a songbird of the wild, water, and woods. Her alto singing voice has been described as raw and hauntingly beautiful, which perfectly complements her rhythmic fingerpicking on acoustic guitar and her old soul as a lyricist. Throughout live performances, Watts musically captures audiences with her on-stage performance charisma, nostalgic melodies on her vintage würlitzer electric piano, and imaginative use of household objects and trinkets that she plays using violin and cello bows to create breathy, eerie sounding textures.
