Detta Kenzie

Detta Kenzie is a Devon based folk singer creating original songs alongside reworking ancient Celtic music. A deep connection to the natural world is ever present in Detta’s work. Specific references to Teignmouth, Shaldon, Dawlish, Dartmoor and the wider landscape of England’s beautiful Southwest bring a local strength to her creations. Once a Secondary English Teacher, Detta’s love of language and storytelling underpins her original music. Themes of womanhood, love, loss, insomnia, anxiety, rebellion and rage can be found in her deeply narrative based songs. Detta describes herself as a forager of stories, a wild woman and a lover of the land. Collaborating with Dawlish based guitarist and producer Gaz Chatterton, Detta is able to create music which explores the diversity of the English landscape and its ability to both mould and reflect human experience.
