Kit Rice Interview – Live & Love Music

Kit tells us more about appearing on The Voice, playing full band gigs and plans for 2017…

Hi Kit! It’s been a while since we caught up with you! You’re currently appearing on The Voice. That must have been an amazing experience – tell us a bit about that.

I can’t answer questions about The Voice just yet! I will let you know I had a blast! And it will all come to a very interesting conclusion! Keep watching!

We’re looking forward to seeing what happens! So do you have any advice for artists appearing on reality TV shows?
Keep it real. Remember who you are and show it at all times!

Great advice! What else have you been working on lately?
I have been working on my new album! Nina Simone said an artist should reflect the times! This album is very that.

You also play live with your full band – is that something you prefer over solo sets?
I love performing solo and with my band! If I had to pick, I’d say band! I create my music from the kick drum to the melody line, so it’s always amazing to hear it with all live instruments!

Which have been your favourite gigs to play so far?
I sold out FLORIPA in Shoreditch last year which was amazing! A full room singing back my lyrics is the dream! I also played to a packed out Kensington Roof Gardens! That was more of a club vibe, but hundreds of people dancing to my songs was a bucket list moment!

Who are your musical influences?
I am very influenced by Vivaldi and classical music! But I love PRINCE, Brandy and Lady Gaga! I love music!

How did you first get into music?
I have been playing since I was 4 years old, so it’s always been a thing. It’s in my blood!

What does music mean to you?
I live and breathe music everyday. If I’m not performing, I’m teaching. One of the most important things in life is giving back!

If you had to put together a supergroup of singers and musicians, dead or alive, who would you choose?

GAGA – PRINCE – BRANDY – AMY WINEHOUSE – BEYONCÉ – MARIAH – WHITNEY – SNOOP – RIHANNA! BAM!!

What are your plans for the rest of 2017?
