Kelly Lee Owens wins Welsh music prize
The £10,000 Welsh Music prize has been won by the electronic artist Kelly Lee Owens, pictured below, for her album Inner Song.
Owens, who is from the market town of Bagillt in north Wales, said: “It feels amazing. As a Welsh artist to be recognised by your country, ultimately for me, is the greatest honour. I’m so passionate about Wales and I want everyone to know where I’m from.”
Her album, which blends pounding techno with softer electronic songcraft, astounded the panel of judges, according to the prize’s co-founder, Huw Stephens.
