Kitto rocks! Critics have hailed her as ‘feminine Cobainesque’ and a ‘musical abductress’. Whatever, Kitto’s intense. She doesn’t bleed words; she moulds them into sounds that soar. Reliving stories through songs, she spreads herself across the spectrum. She’s driven, barefoot on stage and swinging, always giving her all when she performs. Musicians who’ve worked with her will tell you, “she has an improvisational mentality, the inflections are never the same”.
Dividing her time between her homeland of Australia and her European base in Sweden, Kitto’s attracted airplay in recent years with tracks like ‘Bus Driver’ (which topped the Swedish Spray Charts) from her solo debut ‘Princess of Tragedy’, independently released in 2001.
Earlier this year, ‘I Wonder Why’ hit the playlists of over seventy radio stations across the nation. Since her last Australian tour, which ended in May 2003, Kitto’s been performing solo and with a rock trio at festivals in the UK, France, Scandinavia and Russia.
In Feb 2004, she’s set to return to Australia for a five-month national tour with a swag of songs from her new album ‘Precious Junk’ ignited by her desire to share observations and experiences with the world.
“Only the immense, poetic beauty of Kitto’s lyrics can match her strong vocals. This is an artist with veracity, talent and a spirit that shines with intensity.” – Beat Magazine
