Keeley Forsyth

The Hollow

world premiere

Keeley Forsyth is a singer, composer, and actor from Oldham in the UK. A mainstay of British primetime television since the mid-90s, she debuted her distinct, weighty style of music in 2020 with album Debris on The Leaf Label. Signalling the beginning of a new, unusual parallel career, her silky contralto tones and adept songwriting captured audience’s attention, cementing her as an uncompromising new presence in contemporary music. Considering that she cites influences such as playwright Samuel Beckett, director Bela Tarr, and choreographer Pina Bausch, it is no surprise that her performances are strikingly physical displays just as they are demonstrations of her singular voice. Her songs – developed further across her follow-ups, EP Photograph (2020) and album Limbs (2022) – delve under the veneer of everyday life to consider the often-hidden darkness beneath, seeking to unearth life’s underlying truths and motivations. Her forthcoming album The Hollow (2024) promises to expand on Forsyth’s exceptional aural worldbuilding – evident to any who wander into range of her unique voice. It moves her signature sound into the electronic realm, and features a stunning collaboration with Colin Stetson. At Rewire Forsyth will present the world premiere of The Hollow in a live A/V show at Grote Kerk with visuals by director and video artist Netia Jones.
