British singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kezia Gill has a completely unique sound, pulling influences from Folk & Irish, Country, Rock and Blues.

She began writing music at the age of ten and has been singing professionally for over half her life, but 2019 became a breakout year for Kezia.

Two years on from the release of her debut full-length album KEZIA, she made her way to Nashville and performed at The Bluebird Cafe and the historic Ryman Auditorium, as well as playing numerous tour dates across the UK, Europe, and Australia, and being nominated for five BCMA awards, taking home the title of Best Female Artist.

Since then, she has had consistent support from BBC Radio 2; reached #1 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Charts (‘All Of Me’); opened several shows for Tony Hadley, and country stars The Shires and Eric Paslay on a 26-date national tour; and played multiple festival appearances including a headline set at Buckle & Boots, a writer’s round alongside Cam at Black Deer Festival, C2C at the O2 Arena, and joined Marty Stuart and The Superlatives on the main stage at The Long Road festival.

To close out 2021, Kezia was also announced as a global Takamine Guitars artist, joining the roster with legends such as Garth Brooks, Bruce Springsteen and Blake Shelton.
Her latest EP, THE MESS I MADE (2021), is available to stream/download worldwide now (95K track streams), and her brand-new single ‘Like I Did Before’ was released 21st October.

It was an exciting and history-making moment and it’s been incredible to see C2C get bigger and bigger every year since, to become the centrepiece of the Anglo/American Country calendar – the UK’s biggest Country music weekend. It’s an amazing story and I am thrilled and honoured to be hosting the artists on the main stage again in 2023. Even better, I’ll be joined in the spotlight by my friend Breland, whose career has literally gone stratospheric since the release of his first music only three years ago.
