Canty is an East-London singer and multi-instrumentalist. A self-taught musician in their early teens, Canty creates imaginative and original music that crosses the worlds of alternative pop and indie weirdness. First drawing praise for enigmatic performances and hypnotic ballads (distantly reminiscent of Syd Barrett or Marlene Dietrich) Canty’s dystopian odes flicker in the face of dissolution and despair, balancing on the precipice between the transcendental and the mundane. Perfect for Smooth and Free lovers and the fans of Radiohead and Devendra Banhart.
Canty is curated by Cid Rim, who is part of our Artist Residency Program. Cid Rim on Canty: “I got to know Canty’s music through a friend from London that was vividly telling me about this amazing performance she had seen. Soon after i listened to Canty’s first release and was struck by its inherent rich musicality. I can’t wait to see Canty’s live performance.”
