This Is The Kit is the musical project of Paris-based, British musician Kate Stables along with Rozi Plain (bass/vocals), Neil Smith (guitar), Jesse D Vernon (guitar/keyboards) and Jamie Whitby-Coles (drum/vox). Listen as Kate rips forward with her hypnotic twang pattern and a voice of rare, unaffected beauty.

The band’s fifth album Off Off On (2020), following the critically acclaimed Moonshine Freeze (2017), sees Kate Stables working with producer Josh Kaufman – New York-based musician, Hold Steady collaborator and member of Bonny Light Horseman and Muzz.

Since their debut album, Krulle Bol in 2008, This Is The Kit have unpicked emotional knots and woven remarkable stories, but even by their high standards Off Off On is a beautifully clear distillation of Stables’ songwriting gifts.

This event is part of The Fire Station opening season – Firestarters. Firestarters is commissioned by Sunderland Music Arts and Culture Trust and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
