Kirsty Dewar now calls Limassol, on the south coast of Cyprus, her home – when she is not touring and performing that is.
The former Grangemouth High School pupil was a finalist in the Falkirk Herald’s Voice competition back in 2010 and has been performing and recording music ever since.
After graduating from Edinburgh’s Napier University in 2011, Kirsty moved to Europe and has been living, working and performing her own material throughout the continent – playing in front of major stars, including Hollywood heartthrob Colin Farrell who was at a show she played in Cyprus back in 2017.
A year later she was Sandi Thom’s support act on one of the Scottish singer’s tours.
Earlier this month Kirsty returned to the UK on a quick visit to record her new EP Eyes Wide Open.
She said: “It was recorded by a well-known producer called Gareth Young who has produced for Dani Minogue, Ronan Keating, Sugababes and is now working with Tom Meighan from Kasabian and TikTok star Sam Ryder.
"He has an incredible studio in Truro called Cube Studios. I'm going to be finishing my EP with him and then releasing it at the beginning of June followed by a 13-track album later in the year.”
Kirsty’s two new singles from her EP Dance With Your Shadows and Eyes Wide Open are now available to download.
