Kitty the Lion began life as the singer-songwriter Anna Meldrum, reared at the seaside on a diet of folk and pop. In this cub stage, Anna toured the open mics and small venues of Glasgow with her acoustic guitar, and sensible shoes because Glasgow is a wet city and cats hate water.
In the next few months and years, Anna was lucky enough to play lots of exciting gigs, including an appearance at Hydro Connect Festival, and a string of support slots with Duke Special. All this gigging led to her to meet many like-minded musicians, so in 2009 the cub grew up into a fully fledged LION, when Joe Rattray on upright bass and Nick Roan on drums were added to the line up. This changed Kitty the Lion’s sound from a meagre mewling to an upbeat, folk-tinged roar.
Kitty released their debut single Lion In the Bed through Dead Hip Records last November, and are planning an EP for April 2010. As the live shows gain more great reviews with every performance, and both Vic Galloway (Radio 1) and Jim Gellatly (Radio Scotland, Radio Magnetic) naming the band in their ‘ones to watch’ section, 2010 looks set to be their year. Catch them at the festivals this summer, followed by a full UK tour late in the year.
