Hat Fitz & Cara Robinson
Even during the early stages of her career, Cara Robinson was writing and recording with notable artists from a huge range of musical genres, including David Holmes, LTJ Bukem and upcoming EMI artist, Corinne Bailey Rae. She has toured throughout the UK as a session singer, backing singer and solo artist. As a backing singer for Sony's Rhianna, she toured Japan and the UK, supporting Jamiroquai and Beverly Knight. Her soulful, thoughtful and innocent voice has feaured on various documentaries for Ulster TV. Keeper Lit is Cara's impressive debut album, which she wrote and produced with keyboard player Joe Tatton
"Hat Fitz is a musical anachronism, seemingly possessed by 1920’s bluesmen, so authentic it’s almost unbelievable. Imagine : Ned Kelly / Son House on speed! A flat out boogie rhythm, Itchy beating and bashing Hat’s monstrous demons. Fitzy’s eyes wild and wide like a blind man screaming some primal roar, head twitching with the emotion of release. You wonder whether it’s indignity or the shedding of some painful old identity, but the strum is ferocious and the beat won’t be denied".
