This is the Kit
This is the Kit is Kate Stables, with the magnificent assistance of bassist and singer Rozi Plain, guitarist Neil Smith and drummer Jamie Whitby-Coles.
Ten years and four albums deep, the story of This Is The Kit - the musical project that holds Stables at its heart - is itself one of time and change and careful listening.
Stables has always been an exceptional songwriter, a gifted storyteller, a thoroughly unique voice. But with her latest album Moonshine Freeze (released in the summer of 2017) there comes the rare and thrilling sensation of an artist truly taking flight, as if these are the stories she has long been waiting to tell: songs of great beauty, of wonder and illumination, that hold, still, something dark and teeming and shadowed; music you swim out into, songs that lead you through.
“soaring new star of contemporary folk”
