"Kar Stanton has a distinctive style, by turns haunting and soothing, memorable and challenging"

- Paul Canon Harris, Poet & Broadcaster

"A lovely minimal listen - at times vocally reminiscent of a young Suzanne Vega - New Year & In The Darkness are instant faves…"

- Conrad Barr, Solid Air, Moonbeams, Chaplins & Cellar Bar

Hi, I’m Kar and I'm an indie-electro artist and producer.


Growing up in a musical household in Dundee, Scotland, I played in orchestras, brass bands and ensembles of seemingly-random combinations of instruments. 


I was a member of critically-acclaimed indie-rock miserablists The Scottish Enlightenment, playing bass and cornet.  Highlights included supporting Idlewild; appearing in the Eyes video on MTV2 and VH1; and providing backing vocals for the celebrated St Thomas album.  

I also sang and played electric guitar in indie-pop bands, including The Terry Stamps, before concentrating on my solo music.

I'm now settled in the boldly-creative city of Manchester, England, soaking up its musical legacy.

Please see the EPK tab for information about my latest release.
