“We’re all fucking exhausted. We’re all going through it… I just wanted to share some of the love I’ve been fortunate to have around me” – Kitt
Kitt (formerly known as Katherine Penfold) is an indie soul artist in the midst of a creative rebirth. Drawing inspiration from contemporaries like Charlotte Day Wilson, Snoh Aalegra, and Jorja Smith, Kitt creates intimate and soulful music anchored by a deep sense of self-discovery.
In 2019, Kitt released her full-length debut Sweetest Thing under the Penfold name, introducing her “as a dynamic performer and an artist to watch moving forward” [EARMILK]. At the end of last year, Kitt released Within You, a 6-track personal project that chronicles the end of her marriage and, more importantly, her path forward. Having always been known as Kitt to close friends, she wanted her music persona to reflect a similar level of vulnerability and intimacy. “As much as I appreciate my given name, walking on-stage to sing my originals – the authentic sound I want to bring to listeners – it never felt like a match,” she says. Adding, “through the massive life shifts and realizations of the last two years, I felt ready to present Kitt to everyone. I never imagined how good it would feel.”
Asides from music, she is the creative director for Sandstone Studios in Vancouver, conceptualizing and directing videos for independent musicians.
