Kitt Philippa (KP) searches for grace, and the luminous, in words met with music. Although raised on classical, the songs are strangely urban and often conveyed with digital sleight. An organ scholar and an experimentalist, KP plays piano, guitar, clarinet, prayer bowl and bicycle wheel.

The songs may often reflect perilous times yet in so doing, KP takes us out of ourselves and into the most rarefied state. The latest single ‘Human’ is an emotive plea, a call to be close and to be kind, to rediscover that most beautiful denominator. “Times are troubling,” and while “…there’s an acknowledgment of that pain, somehow hope tries to rouse you.”

KP has performed music with The Ulster Orchestra, has been featured on the playlists of Mary Anne Hobbs, Tom Robinson, Huw Stephens, Philly Taggart, Tom Ravenscroft, RTE 2FM and has silenced audiences in Berlin, London, Dublin, and Belfast: the place currently called home. The upcoming summer tour will feature contributions from a live string quartet, live percussion and KPs signature layers and loops.
