Retro-Starlet, Jazz singer and Drummer that grew up in Bolton, in the North of England,near the moors playing beautiful music with her charming Piano man –
Do I have your attention? Good, let’s talk about Kitty LaRoar & Nick Shankland
Twitter is a great thing. My loves, you have heard me say this before and without it I would never have known about this amazing lady in England. The funny thing is she found me when I needed her the most.
I kind of long for the day when you sat in the corner of a dark, blue smoke filled bar and listened to someone pour their heart out with a song. I am one step closer with Kitty & Nick Shankland
So how did the starlet from the north of England and a pianist from Wales met – through music of course. As Kitty say – it was like a movie
She visited a club with friends and found, Nick Shankland, playing piano. He asked if anyone wanted to sing and she courageously raised her hand, the rest is history .A partnership developed, in music and love
In a special way it is like they transport you back, if only for a short time but the sound is so beautiful yet sounds effortless. Mellow voice & catchy piano. All you need is a velvet armchair and a cocktail in hand
Anything from Ellington, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald and the old American songbook this beautiful duo ( or trio, they are more like a combo really) has covered
If you are lucky enough to be in London please step out and see these beautiful talented souls at Scarfe’s Bar in The Rosewood Hotel.
I may see there is September
