Singer-songwriter Kate Dimbleby is performing some of her most impressive work to celebrate the release of her latest album Songbirds.

Dimbleby has spent much of her career celebrating the songs of others but now it really is all about her as she has recorded an album with just her voice – and the occasional keyboard and tambourine interlude.

She may have been performing for 25 years but this time she has decided to do something a little bit different and is blending blues, jazz and reggae, alongside her own individual style.

She has released five albums in that time and toured all over the world at a host of different festivals.

But she says this album has been the most challenging.

This is because she has had to search for inspiration from others, while exploring her own sound ready to perform to an audience.

She has also enjoyed a host of success in other areas, creating cabaret shows, as well as her own podcast about her career.

The Voices In Our Head is set to be broadcast on a number of radio stations as she looks to expand her repertoire and show everyone the challenges she has faced as a musician and songwriter over the past 25 years.

Kate Dimbleby will be at Ustinov Studio at The Theatre Royal Bath, in Saw Close, tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday at 8pm.

Tickets, priced £14, are available by calling 01225 448844 or online via www.theatreroyal.org.uk
