This Is The Kit at O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire

About

Absolutely gorgeous, like an aural bath with the warm water lapping over you" Cerys Matthews, BBC 6music This Is The Kit is the much beloved musical project of Kate Stables, born in England and based in Paris, though the heart of their musical community remains in Bristol, UK. Kate sings, plays guitar, banjo, trumpet and percussion, while a cast of carefully hand-plucked friends deliver guitar strums, banjo plucks, hushed horns and electronic textures that sit beneath Stables' easy, earnest lilt. Her long time collaborator and regular live companion Jesse Vernon produced the album and contributes guitars, percussion, violin and percussion. Aaron Dessner (The National) is working with the band to produce the follow-up album to 'Wriggle Out the Restless', now being reissued by Aaron's label Brassland. "The aim is to have fun playing with people whose work I really like," says Kate in her simple and direct fashion. "The more you exchange and share with people the better things get and the more you learn." This is the Kit has or will be opening for artists such as Jose Gonzales, Jerey Lewis, The National, Alexi Murdoch, Iron & Wine and Jolie Holland, and was recently selected by Sharon Van Etten as her "Favorite New Aritst" in an interview with Pitchfork.
