About Sit Kitty Sit
San Francisco, CA, US
There is a light shining through the fog in San Francisco.
Born in 2010, Sit Kitty Sit has without question invented the term "Classical Rock".
Sony recording artist Kat Downs (Saints of Ruin/Mission Bells) and Mike Thompson (Tokyo Raid/ Cougar Kick/Big Nasty) create an undeniable pop/proggy piano and drum duo, which has been described as Dresden Dolls mixed with King Crimson, & Fiona Apple.
"...the two of them create some freaking awesome sounds"
- Susan Burrows, www.VicariousLines.com
Following their initial debut EP, "The Push", in September of 2010, SKS became known for consistently thrilling audiences with their energetically intense live performances. No holds barred, this group produces addictive rock n' roll - with only two people, and not one guitar in sight.
"However you slice it though, this music rocks... It’s unique and captivating."
- Gary Hill, Music Street Journal
February 2012 saw the release of their much anticipated sophomore album, "Beautiful/Terrible" released by the new independent label, Gun Horse Records. The album was introduced to the public on February 3, 2012 at San Francisco's legendary live music venue, Bottom of the Hill. Among the highlights of the year was the band’s trip to SXSW in March, participating in Bask - a brand new music festival in the Russian River Valley, and performing as opening support for Warner Brothers Artist LP at Café du Nord in San Francisco. Sit Kitty Sit wrapped up 2012 with a successful tour to New England in November during which they were honored to participate in the 5th Annual Phil Agins Scholarship Fundraiser to benefit a summer music scholarship for the Berklee School of Music.
Moving into 2013, The Kitty will be hitting the road. Shorter tours are planned for Southern California and into the Northwest, as well as return to New England. In addition, SKS is already looking forward to their multi-week tour stretching from California to Wisconsin and the rest of the Midwest which is scheduled for late summer/early fall of 2013. Go Kitty, Go.
“Stripped to it's bare essentials; some classy piano leads render a kooky-ish slice of pop music, complimented by some fantastic vocal melodicism from Bay Area's Sit Kitty Sit”
