Our Overview. 

Kathryn Joseph releases her sophomore album ‘From When I Wake The Want Is’ the follow up to 2015’s acclaimed debut ‘Bones You Have Thrown Me And Blood I’ve Spilled’, which was named the Scottish Album of the Year. 

One of the UK’s most compelling songwriters, Kathryn Joseph’s music is intimate and emotionally raw and was labelled by The Scotsman as “an overnight success, 17 years in the making”. After turning down her first recording contract at age 23, Kathryn only played the occasional Aberdeen gig for the intervening years and all but gave up on her musical aspirations. After striking up a friendship with producer Marcus Mackay and Claire Mackay (who released Frightened Rabbit’s first single on his Hits The Fan label), Kathryn finally recorded her debut album, with some songs being written over the course of the ten previous years.

Since releasing ‘Bones You Have Thrown Me And Blood I’ve Spilled’ Kathryn has collaborated with Marcus Mackay and The Twilight Sad's James Graham on the project Out Lines, who’s debut album ‘Conflats’ was released in October 2017.

The album was produced by Marcus Mackay, who also worked on her debut album. ‘From When I Wake The Want Is’ mixes new songs with material gathered over the past ten years to create an intimate and often devastating portrait of Joseph’s world.
