Longer Bio

Hi, I’m Kar and I sing honest songs for fragile people.
 I play lots of instruments - my favourite is the acoustic guitar. I am happiest in a quiet room, at a clear desk, writing lyrics. 


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


I was a member of critically-acclaimed indie miserablists The Scottish Enlightenment, playing bass and cornet. My highlights were supporting Idlewild; making the Eyes video which was shown on MTV2 and VH1; and singing on the celebrated St Thomas album.



"Will I ever stand up and be counted?"


Scottish songwriter Kar Stanton is back. Coward is an honest song perfect for folk-pop and indie-pop playlists.
