Kitt Philippa 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.
Throughout 2018 KP showcased their new material to audiences across Ireland and the UK at HWCH, Latitude, Stendhal, Other Voices including support slots with SOAK, Villagers, Lisa Hannigan, Hilary Woods, Wye Oak.
Kitt Philippa closed out 2018 by winning ‘Single of the Year’ [by public vote] at the Northern Ireland Music Prize for their single ‘Human’
Without question KP is one of the brightest shining lights in the Northern Irish music scene today.
Critically acclaimed, award winning and a joy to experience live, Stendhal is always excited to welcome Kitt Philippa.
