After playing two sold-out shows at Auckland’s Monte Cristo Room last December and proving their wide appeal with a debut album bought by long-time listeners and young hipsters alike, Kitty, Daisy and Lewis are returning to New Zealand.

Kitty, Daisy and Lewis is not the kind of band you would expect to find in 2010: three young siblings from London’s Kentish Town, playing hard-swinging rock’n’roll, with an exuberance and charm rarely heard or seen since the 1950s.

They have grown a passionate following, thanks to their exuberant live shows and authentic, digital-free recordings. Fans include Coldplay’s Chris Martin, who handpicked them to support his band on a 2009 US arena tour.

Kitty (age 16), Daisy (21) and Lewis (19) first performed together at a country and rockabilly jam in a North London pub when barely in their teens, and have gone on to build a massive word-of-mouth audience through rapturously received gigs and a string of authentically old-school recordings, made on their own vintage equipment and released in various formats, including 10 inch 78RPM records!

Covering a wide range of instruments between them – including guitar, piano, banjo, harmonica, lap steel and accordion – their sound is filled out with the addition of their mother (and former Raincoats drummer) Ingrid Weiss on double bass, father ‘Daddy Grazz’ on guitar, plus Jamaican trumpet legend Eddie ‘Tan Tan’ Thornton.

Expect energy, intensity and a whole lot of fun. “We play old music but we’re playing it now”, says Lewis. “You can’t just strum. You have to do it with fire.”
