Kitty, Daisy and Lewis Announce NZ Tour

Kitty, Daisy and Lewis Announce NZ Tour

Monday 21st September, 2009 12:00PM

These are shows not to be missed, young sibling sensations Kitty Daisy and Lewis are heading to NZ for the first time this December. The talented trio have been playing together since their early teens and take their influence from 40/50s rockabilly and swing, country and western, Hawaiin and rock n roll.

Do get yourself along:

Tuesday 15th December – Wellington @ San Francisco Bath House
Wednesday 16th December – Auckland @ The Montecristo Room - supported by The Drab Doo Riffs

Tickets available from Monday 28th September here at UTR and Real Groovy Records

Stacked up in the hallway of Kitty, Daisy and Lewis’ North London home are roughly fourteen guitars. To the left is a room with a late ‘40s RCA pre-amp studded with big Bakelite dials, reel-to-reel machines and all manner of post-war vintage equipment. There’s also a big room of rubble where Lewis, 15, is building a studio for his sibling rock ‘n’ roll band with his dad. The middle child to his sisters Kitty, 16 and Daisy, 21, he’s a fully pompadoured teenage rocker, fully conversant in rare rock ‘n’ roll, a DJ of 78” records and owner of a homemade amp and lapsteel guitar.

His sisters are equally immersed. Kitty, the ukelele maestro is currently turning her bedroom into a tiki lounge and Daisy’s mixing a nascent career as a photographer to jam with her sibs. In short, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis are a throughbred sensation, playing 40’s/50’s rockabilly and swing, country and western, Hawaiian and rock ‘n’ roll with a verve, skill and energy that connects them back to the far past and the super-shiny future. Through steely Marconi BBC mics, of course.

Here’s a video for "Goin Up Country" followed by a stream of “Polly Put The Kettle On” from their self-titled album released last year.
