Since her 2002 debut, Kirsty McGee's finely-crafted songs and striking voice have been winning over audiences and critics alike, attracting the attention from the likes of Radio 2's Mike Harding and Bob Harris. Now with Two Birds, her third album (the second for Park) this singer and songwriter returns with a collection of songs set to continue her rise to prominence.
