This is the Kit is Kate Stables, with the magnificent assistance of bassist and singer Rozi Plain, guitarist Neil Smith and drummer Jamie Whitby-Coles. Ten years and four albums deep, the story of This Is The Kit — the musical project that holds Stables at its heart — is itself one of time and change and careful listening.
Stables has always been an exceptional songwriter, a gifted storyteller, a thoroughly unique voice. But with her latest album Moonshine Freeze (released in the summer of 2017) there comes the rare and thrilling sensation of an artist truly taking flight, as if these are the stories she has long been waiting to tell: songs of great beauty, of wonder and illumination, that hold, still, dark and teeming and shadowed; music you swim out into, songs that lead you through.
This Is The Kit is joined by Gwyneth Glyn.
Although her feet are rooted deep in the earth of Eifionydd, Gwyneth’s gaze is always drawn to distant horizons. A poet, singer and playwright, she sees herself as an artist-adventurer who thrives on experimenting with different forms.
In her latest collection of songs, Tro, Gwyneth encompasses all her recent influences and experiences. It is a collection that traces the journey back to her roots – from Cardiff, where she lived for five years, back to her native environment in Eifionydd, north Wales; the heart’s journey back from darkness to light, and the soul’s journey from a distant, foreign desert to the fruitful greenness of the very place where it belongs.
