Having spent years in the Perth music scene collaborating, singing, supporting fellow Perth-based artists now comes the beginning of a new solo venture for Jade Richards; San Solis.
Over the years, she has had the pleasure of working with a number Perth acts/friends including; Teischa's touring band, Elli Schoen's touring band, Ruby May and electronic/indie duo Junokind. After moving to Melbourne for some fresh air, a different perspective and inspiration Jade moved back to Perth and began her San Solis journey.
King Blue’ have been honing their own exciting brand of indie pop since forming in high school and bonding over a shared passion for music. The band burst onto the Perth scene with an energetic live show and an impressive collection of ear worms that belie their short time in the industry. After months of playing back to back shows with some of Perth's best up and coming bands, the band launched their debut single with a sold out show at Jack Rabbit Slim's. With an enthused following eager for more, King Blue returned to Tone City Recording Studio to lay down a second single with engineer/producer Sam Ford (Pond, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Abbe May).
Described as a mash up of Paul Kelly and Stevie Ray Vaughan, Kat Wilson’s sonic brew is infused with hours spent sitting on council verge-collection furniture and playing ping pong. The music is taut, sweet and drenched in the azure of the WA coastline that is a core part of Wilson’s heritage. Add to that lyrics that come from a sharp observational eye and speak with a poet’s knack for creating meaning out of the ordinary, and you begin to get a sense of just what Wilson is capable of.
Kat Wilson’s unique and beguiling voice is entirely her own, no comparisons will prepare you for her sound. Her songs effortlessly fuse pop with coastal blues and just a dash of folk, along with the ability to shred on her guitar with the best of them. Know this, and you may just come close to understanding what Kat Wilson was put on Earth to do.
- "The vocal haunts of Kat can be likened to taking a plunge into a wintery sea: bone-chilling but utterly refreshing.” - Joe Harris, Tone Deaf
- “When Kat Wilson took the stage, it didn’t seem right for her to give it back.” - The Music.
- “And then there's the voice. It's dreamy and ethereal, it sounds like summer, and Wilson has the lyrical sensibilities to put it to use telling the sort of observational stories that make you feel like she's singing about and to you.” - Around the Sound.
