                                  KITTY LA ROAR

                             "When Kitty sings, stops to listen."
                                     - Jazz in Europe magazine 

Stylish London singer Kitty La Roar debuts her new quartet at AnniesJazz, singing, scatting and at the drums. The band will be showcasing original compositions from the recent album Valentine's Eve, as well as introducing the music of Monk, Ellington, Strayhorn and Sonny Rollins sung with new original lyrics.

Inspired by Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan, Kitty La Roar's unique talents are not just as voiced and drummer. She has to freestyle lyrics to on the spot, telling stories that are not only relevant to the song she is singing, but often weaving in references to life, love, nature, politics, current events, and even to people in the audience. 
The quartet performs standards as well as highly original songs by Kitty and her pianist Nick Shankland, and although the genre is clearly jazz, this unpredictable and eclectic music entrances and engages the audience.

      Nick Shankland - Piano
      Ed Jones - Tenor Sax
      Davide Mantovani - Acoustic Bass
