Scottish singer-songwriter Kerri Watt releases her new single “Kissing Fools” today – Valentine’s Day – alongside a video featuring School of Rock’s Cody Molko – 14-year-old son of Placebo’s Brian Molko.

Now signed to Cooking Vinyl (Lissie, Passenger, Nina Nesbitt, Will Young, Deap Lips, Fantastic Negrito, The Darkness & more), Kerri will release her debut album “Chasing Aeroplanes” in 2020.

Last year she hit the road for sets at Glastonbury Festival, Country2Country, British Summer Time (with Celine Dion), Kew The Music and Cambridge Folk Festival, and performed at BBC Radio Scotland’s inaugural singer-songwriter awards.

She supported a a number of legendary artists including Keith Urban, where she also joined him on stage to sing Carrie Underwood’s vocal parts from his hit “The Fighter”, Julio Iglesias at The Royal Albert Hall and Joe Jackson at The Palladium.

Brought up in Glasgow by a dad who played for Celtic FC and a mum who ferried her to music, dance and drama classes, Kerri aimed high. At 16, she won a scholarship to a music high school in California.
By 18, she was on a West End stage and at 20 she discovered that her first love was writing her own songs and singing them.


  • Young Cody, who stars in the “Kissing Fools” video with Kerri, lives in London and his two main passions are acting and playing music. He’s recently featured in the Netflix series “Shadow And Bone” and he starred in West End musical “The School Of Rock”. He is the guitarist in his own indie band The Hunger.
