Having toured 33 countries, KITTO is the epitome of indie, an emotive guitarist and a hell of a singer wrenching haunting lyrics from a deep communal well. Defiantly barefoot on stage, she''s got the scorching commitment of a firestorm, with or without a backing band. She rocks! The Australian born, Swedish-based vocalist and songwriter''s performances are littered with stories from Tasmanian hotel rooms, Hollywood’s underbelly, The Global Cafés and beyond!
2003 she supported the eclectic Jacque Higgins in Theatre De Verdun at the Nice Jazz Festival in France, shared the bill with Megadeath at the Midtfyn Festival in Denmark and, in September, became the first Aussie to rock the boards in the ex-Soviet country of Belarus. "It was an amazing eye opener," she said. "I got a glimpse into a country which is still battling the throes of post-communism, still in its transitional stages. Most folks have hardly got a dollar on them as wages are so low, so consequently the show was full of young journalists who got in for free, vying for a story and a chance to express their views and pitch questions to someone from the west."
Weeks later, she turned on a series of hot shows at a base at the North Pole. "It''s everyone''s greatest dream to actually go somewhere as extreme as the North Pole," she says. "For me it was about as Everest or as Dick Smith as I''ll ever get." Kitto and her rock trio flew North 72 degrees to Svalbard for 3 gigs before an enthusiastic crowd of 1000.
In late 2004 Scandinavia, Kitto featured in a Swedish TV Gala ABBA the Tribute over 3 nights performing alongside Dionne Warwick & Eskobar, Shortly after Kitto made a pilgrimage to South Africa to perform on Robben Island, the home for 17 years to former political prisoner Nelson Mandela.
Late 2005, she completed the new album Over Sensitive with producer Michael Vail Blum in Los Angeles USA. Players featured from Slashes Snake Pit bassist Johnny Griparic and Suicidal Tendencies guitarist Dean Pleasants. Mixed in Sweden by PNA Andersson at Cavern St (Thomas Skogberg & Maryslim).
Kitto recently toured throughout UK & Sweden with Big Brother & The Holding Co (Janis Joplin''s original band) fronting the lead vocals (on the Janis songs) and has also recorded a garage track Rock n Fuck in France with Jerkhouse Connection which shows the versatility of her vocals and sound...
This January she recently recorded a live CD The Chiltern Sessions with all new material and a studio audience. Available in the fall of 2007
