Recorded in 2015, Billie Holiday's centenary, The album contains material written by Billie, about Billie, plus jazz standards that she made her own with her unique style of delivery. The first show in July 2016 was a sell-out, and the audience loved every minute of the performance. Joined by a great selection of musicians - Dr Jim Barber (keys), Donnie Joe Sweeney (double bass), Rob Haddon (guitars) and Greg Evans (drums). Sadly the wonderful jazz guitarist Rob Haddon passed in 2017; this is the last album recorded before his passing.
Kitty began recording for the album in January 2020 at Shoebox Studios, London; engineered and recorded by Tony B, a sound engineer she worked with at London's 100 Club, The current project features Kitty on piano, singing her compositions, favourite hymns and a little Nick Drake!
Always looking for new directions in performance and musicality, Kitty bares her soul in this collection of songs, some written 20+ years ago
with a fresh makeover. Other songs were written recently and are honest accounts of life, love and loss. The album is planned for release in
Summer 2020. Kitty is considering a release as an EP in its current format due to the pandemic, and hopes to release the full album this Winter.
