This Is The Kit
This is the kit is the musical project of Kate Stables, (from Winchester, England) who sings and plays banjo and guitar sometimes solo and other times plays with a bunch of musicians. Oftentimes with longtime collaborator Jesse D Vernon on violin and percussion. TITK has released two albums and a handful of singles since 2006.
"Absolutely gorgeous, like an aural bath with the warm winter lapping over you" Cerys Matthew, BBC 6 Music
"Just one of the best things I’ve heard all year. Wonderful wonderful stuff" Gideon Coe, BBC 6 Music
"This Is The Kit should be knighted for the fact that they create a wonderful atmosphere with one singer an acoustic guitar and percussion only" altsounds.com
Sarabeth was born to a psychiatrist and a psychologist in Miami, but grew up in New York. She was a latecomer to music, her first calling being acting. However, after a few years in Hollywood, her singing and songwriting was encouraged by people on the music scene she fell in with. She first made an impression singing backing vocals on Smog’s 2003 album ‘Supper’ and then in the film ‘Dig!’, where she sings a song she had just written called ‘Something For You’. The Brian Jonestown Massacre went on to cover the song (retitled ‘Seer’), but Sarabeth’s own version became her debut single, on Sonic Cathedral, back in February 2007.
Sarabeth Tucek releases her second album, ‘Get Well Soon’, via Sonic Cathedral Recordings on April 4. It will be available on limited-edition heavyweight vinyl, CD and as a download.
