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 acknowledgement 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 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.

’they are extraordinary. I think they are a shining future star’
Mary Anne Hobbs (BBC 6 Music)

“Heard ‘Hosanna’ tonight at midnight and downloaded the EP straight away. Impressive is too weak a word.”
Hozier (Take Me To Church)

“Kitt Philippa is very talented and thoughtful singer and musician who performs in an open and honest way, unburdened by external pressure and it shows”
Nialler9

“… full of sparse, graceful, elegantly pitched wonder. There’s a beautiful minimal soulfulness…”
The Irish Times

“Bright, dynamic and boasting one of the most interesting new Irish voices we’ve heard in aeons, this one’s a must for lovers of Fiona Apple or James Blake.” Hotpress Magazine
