Kate Nash - the singer/songwriter who found fame after falling down stairs and breaking a foot - will play Belfast early next year, it was announced today.

The Londoner with the informal style and tongue-in- cheek look at life will play the Waterfront Hall on Sunday, February 24.

It's been a meteoric rise for Nash over the past 12 months.

While bed-ridden with a broken foot, she began writing songs to pass the time and her parents bought her a guitar to keep her occupied.

The 20-year-old discovered a knack for songwriting and booked herself a gig at a local club. Her first performance earned her £30 and she quit her job at River Island to pursue a career in music.

Nash loaded some of her songs on to MySpace and word of her talent began to spread.

Her debut single earlier this year, Caroline's A Victim - a song about one of her close friends - was released independently and, during the promotion, she supported Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly on tour.

Then in March this year Nash was signed to Polydor offshoot, Fiction Records, home to Snow Patrol and The Maccabees.

Her second single, Foundations, was released in June and reached number two in the official UK singles charts. Her latest single, Mouthwash, is out now.

Tickets to her concert at the Waterfront Hall are £19 (seated), £17 (standing).

They go on sale this Friday, October 5, at 9am from the Waterfront Hall box office, Virgin and all usual Ticketmaster outlets.
