About Soundhouse: Letitia VanSant

Baltimore’s Letitia VanSant first came to prominence in 2017 when she won the prestigious Kerrville New Folk Songwriting competition - an honour previously granted to many who went on to become big names, such as Lucinda Williams and Nanci Griffith.

Since releasing her debut album in Europe, the powerfully impressive singer-songwriter has won a legion of new fans…and many glowing reviews.

Writing at AmericanaUK, Paul Kerr said she was “wonderful - a great songwriter with a glorious voice” and at Folk Radio UK, writer and radio presenter Mike Davies delivered more praise, calling her “terrific.”

Over at the Three Chords and The Truth online blog, which has a huge global audience, David Hughes said: “Brandi Carlile and Courtney Marie Andrews may have to make a little room for a new artist on the block”, while respected music writer Marc Higgins described the album as “captivating,” and awarding it a top 5-star rating, added: “the song-writing is sparkling and she has a stop-the-traffic voice.”

Here, she makes her UK debut in duo format with her band’s guitarist David McKindley-Ward, a long-standing collaborator, who also doubles up on vocal harmonies.

These shows will be opened by the outstanding Scots-born and now Canadian singer-songwriter David Leask whose last CD made a big impact when it was released on this side of the Atlantic. Maverick magazine told readers: “the songs are superbly crafted.”
