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. On a song like ‘Human’ the listener is being willed to be close, to rediscover that most beautiful denominator. “Times are troubling,” and while “…there’s an acknowledgement of that pain, somehow hope tries to rouse you.”
