Australian born Kitto has toured in over 36 countries collecting stories, influences and observations - all molded into a trembling pot of indie rock, sweaty garage and gritty grunge. Now when her sixth full length album "Crash" is about to see the light of day, she feels that her influences and visions have finally merged together. Full of punctuating riffs, "Crash" takes you on a psychedelic journey where Kitto’s raw deep vocals and her co-writer/guitarist Pna Andersson’s song mastery blends into a magic carpet ride that range from the downtuned “Desert Flower” to road trips such as “Ticket Man”. Kitto sweeps in like a force of nature to remind us all what true artistry and rock is about …
Kitto began her career in the early 90's when she was signed to Australia’s most successful rock label Mushroom Records. Inspite of big label support, she came to realize that her path lied beyond the machine that was driving the music industry at the time and continued her career as an independent artist, something she's followed successfully ever since.
Her strikingly formidable vocals and frenetic energy soon won a reputation amongst musicians as well her audience and critics. Having shared festival bills with artists such as Mike Monroe (Hanoi Rocks), Stone Sour, Pete Doherty & Suicidal Tendencies, Kitto is foremost a live artist and considers the stage to be her second home.
Today, her music has swept her throughout the globe - from the North Pole to Tasmania, Robben Island to Tahiti, and the scope of her influences mirror the world of travel.
After spending most of her career as a solo artist, Kitto nowadays has now formed a solid platform/partnership with Swede Pna Andersson. Together they formulate her sound with shows performed as a duo or with a full band. The majority of songs featured on the new album are written in hide-away corners of Norway during one of the duo’s recording sessions in 2010.
"Crash" marks a new era for Kitto. We hope that you will be a part of this magic carpet ride …
