New Roots is proud to present Lucy Kitt’s ‘Stand By Me’ Album Launch.
A consummate songwriter and superbly accomplished folk player and singer, Lucy Kitt’s creative soul looks west across the Atlantic. Taking inspiration from the classic 70’s folk rock of Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Neil Young, Lucy’s signature sound evokes LA’s legendary Laurel Canyon at its height- her superbly crafted songwriting shows a crystal clear vision, with rock solid foundations strong enough to take such heavyweight references.
Lucy has supported a host of musical talent over the last few years, including Cara Dillon, Turin Brakes, The Unthanks, Pete Molinari and Nick Mulvey. Major UK festival slots have included Cambridge Folk Festival, The Isle of Wight Festival, Secret Garden Party, and Lounge on the Farm, and she featured on 2017’a highly prestigious Glastonbury Acoustic Stage. Tours of Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Germany, and California, along with successful internet TV sessions for ‘Mahogany’, ‘The Preservation Room’, ‘Balcony TV’ and ‘On’t Sofa’ have brought her to the attention of many – she’s notched up an impressive 90.000 plays on Soundcloud. That’s set to increase to even greater numbers with the release on March 22nd of her eagerly anticipated ‘Stand By’ debut album.
Ned Roberts has featured frequently on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio Scotland, and has been championed by Lauren Laverne, Jo Whiley, Gideon Coe, and Huey Morgan. His self-titled debut album was released to great acclaim in 2014, garnering significant national press, notably from the Guardian and Uncut magazine. Live sessions for BBC Radio London and Bob Harris’ Radio 2 show followed. In 2017 he released his second album ‘Outside My Mind’, and signed to the Green Note’s Aveline label (Ani Di Franco, Ruth Theodore), adding an Americana expanse to his folk foundations.
