With all three of the first singles from Kitt Philippa’s debut album nominated for Best Song by the Northern Irish Music Prize – the expectation was high for the album release and it doesn’t disappoint. The Belfast-based artist released ‘Human’ in the UK to widespread critical acclaim from sources such as Sunday Times Culture Magazine, which described the album as “astonishing”.

Although growing up largely in a classical music environment, Kitt Philippa’s influences have been broad, and their songwriting and performances reflect a craft steeped in contemporary urban and digital soundscapes; from their home life inspirations; to Queen’s University; to an introductory stage talent development scheme at the Oh Yeah Music Centre, Belfast – a dedicated music hub for new talent setup by Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol); to performing their original music live onstage with the Ulster Orchestra at the ripe old age of 21 and beyond. Kitt Philippa (KP) has been championed by Mary Anne Hobbs (BBC 6 Music), Tom Robinson, Phil Taggart (BBC Radio 1), Huw Stephens, RTE 2FM, Today FM amongst others. BBC Entertainment News in their review of The Great Escape 2019 proclaimed, “You can instantly hear why Hozier said "impressive is too weak a word" to describe their music.”
Kitt’s single Fahrenheit has begun to garner some radio airplay on German radio, including being playlisted on Berlin’s radio eins. Paragon Records sourced Hugh O’Conor, the acclaimed Irish film director to create a beautiful music video for Fahrenheit, using only the newly released Samsung Galaxy Note 10. Richard Donnelly acted as Director of Photography for the video having previously worked on projects including The Last Kingdom, Games of Thrones and Irish drama, Love/Hate.
