Trombone player and ex pop star Ashley Slater (aka Hip) joined forces with beautiful and intelligent singer songwriter Kitten Quinn (aka Kitten) to create the electro-Swing act Kitten & The Hip.
The group was formed in 2011 almost by accident when the two met – they hung out and wrote songs together. In February, they were having a chat, and Kitten advised Ashley not to worry about something or other. ‘Don’t You Worry About That’ was born the next day and before long the record was signed and the ball of yarn started rolling.
After three more successful singles Shake It Out, Shut Up and Dance and Who’s Gonna Pay for That released last year they’ve recently released a new album – Hello Kitten - 28 April 2014 on the Pedigree Cuts label.
Live, they are a trio, with Kitten singing, Ashley on trombone and keyboards and the wonderful Gillan McLaughlin on drums all on top of pumping backing tracks.
