Singer-songwriter Kara Conway releases her debut single, ‘Two Hearts’.
Engineered by Derek O’Neill (King Creosote) and mastered by Paul Savage, the four-track EP will be available later in the summer.
“The single is a result of me being a massive Doctor Who fan,” she says. “It’s a break-up song but it came to me when Karen Gillan (Amy Pond) was the Doctor’s (Matt Smith) companion and she was leaving.”
The 24-year-old singer, from Bishopbriggs is studying English literature at university, but inspired by Gabrielle Aplin, taught herself to play guitar so she could perform at open mic nights in and around Glasgow.
Since then Conway has performed on the Danny Kyle Open Stage at Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall as part of Celtic Connections, Killin Music Festival and Scottish singer/songwriter Dougie Maclean’s annual Perthshire Amber Festival.
She has also performed solo Gershwin’s ‘Someone To Watch Over Me’ on the SEC Armadillo stage, accompanied by a live orchestra, and hosts an hour-long, Sunday morning show on Celtic Music Radio.
Of recording with Savage and O’Neill on the EP, she adds: said Kara. “We were in the studios for three or four days in total. Derek plays piano and guitars on all the tracks and I focused on singing. It was amazing working with them.”
