Catch the live-streamed performance tonight on the Hot Press Instagram.
Following last night's stellar set from Eve Belle, we're delighted to announce Kitt Philippa as tonight's act on the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions, brought to you by the sea-faring legends from Grace O'Malley Whiskey. Tonight, March 26, Kitt Philippa will be performing live from Belfast on the Hot Press Instagram at 19:30 GMT.
Tipped as one of the Hot Press 'Hot For 2019' acts, Kitt Philippa is well on their way to becoming Ireland's next megastar – already picking up endorsements from Hozier, comparisons to the legendary likes of Jeff Buckley, and the Northern Ireland Music Prize for 'Single of the Year' in 2018.
The Armagh native's critically acclaimed debut album, Human, was released in October, and was described by Hot Press's Peter McGoran as "album of the year material".
"Crucially, there aren't enough superlatives for Kitt's voice," he wrote. "It goes for the tear ducts. It seems to say everything about human emotion, mental health, identity and self-perception, in a stunningly direct lilt that will linger with people long after they hear it."
In the face of gig cancellations and restrictions, the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions, brought to you by Grace O'Malley Whiskey, allows you to enjoy live performances of your favourite Irish artists, from the safety and comfort of your home.
Throughout the nightly series, our star-studded line-up will be taking over the Hot Press Instagram account (@hotpressmagazine), and live-streaming performances directly to you – wherever you might be!
We encourage anyone who enjoys Kitt Philippa's performance tonight to support them through this extremely difficult time for musicians by purchasing records, CDs, t-shirts, prints and more from kittphilippa.com/shop.
