This Is The Kit is the musical project of Kate Stables. One of time and change and careful listening. It has carried Stables from Winchester to Bristol to Paris (where she’s lived for the last 15 years), and across tours and festivals around the world not to mention a prestigious Ivor Novello nomination.  In early spring of 2020, just before everything got weird, Kate and her band of trusty companions, (Rozi Plain, Jamie Whitby-Coles, Jesse D Vernon, and Neil Smith), knuckled down to record what would become This is The Kit’s fifth album Off Off On. Off Off On, was released in October 2020 to huge acclaim with Uncut calling it the bands “most multi-layered yet subtle work so far” and the Independent naming them  “One of the most original and musically gifted artists of today

Acutely sensitive to the pulses and currents of life, Off Off On shows Kate Stables to be a songwriter overflowing with ideas, ably crafting music of great beauty, of wonder and illumination, and seems one more step on This is The Kit’s to becoming one of the country’s most revered musical endeavours.
