For "A Folded Letter" we wanted to do something a little different. We sent our friend Kai Qi Soh (Kych) an early copy of the album and asked her to paint a specific piece for each song, depending on how she was inspired while listening.
Kych is extremely talented and was able to capture the emotions behind our songs through often simple, yet incredibly striking, paintings. We're thrilled with the result.
About the artist: Kych (Pronounced: K-ai-ch)
Kych is a nickname that Kai Qi’s childhood friends gave her when they first played hide-and-seek. Kai Qi began lettering when she was pursuing her degree in Edinburgh. While she intitially only lettered lyrics from songs that inspired her under 'Kychletters,' she started to explore abstract pieces in watercolor, ink and acrylic. Kai Qi remains greatly inspired by music and nature. If you ask her what her favorite country is, she will tell you without hesitation that her heart belongs to Norway and its landscapes, and this is evident in her work. When she is not painting, Kai Qi is out with her film camera, dreaming up the next dress to sew, running, playing tennis or creating her next playlist.
Kych has plenty of art for sale through her website, and she also takes lettering requests of your favorite lyrics, as well as other commissioned ideas. Get in touch with her here! http://www.bykych.com/
