Here’s a mix tape I made for the upcoming show with Plaid and Luke Abbott.
Come down and catch the dual screen show!
The gig is 29th May in The Lantern at Colston Hall Bristol.
Tickets are available from the Colston Hall Website.
I wrote some words about my experience in Manchester, and it was published on the wonderful Blog, The World Is Listening.
Brighter Sounds are a cultural producer of creative music projects and events in Manchester who recently hosted a week-long residency for emerging female musicians. They put a call out to invite women to apply for positions in what was their fourth ‘Wall of Sounds Artistic Director Series’, this time lead by Beth Orton, after recognizing one in four applicants to their previous music residencies were women.
A good friend of mine saw the workshop advertised and thought I might be interested, once I read the press release I immediately felt compelled to apply. I feel strongly about women’s representation within music, and wondered if, being primarily a producer that works largely in soundscape ambient music, I would be appealing to the judges of the applications, to help achieve a mix of influences and musical backgrounds.
I found out I’d won a place about two weeks before the event, and wasn’t really sure what to expect to be honest! In that sense, nothing (and I suppose everything) could go wrong.

This week is a busy one for me.
I’m excited to do my second performance as part of a new project (Only You Can Reset It) tonight, at The Island, Bristol.
Only You Can Reset it first appeared in October 2013 as part of a pop up record shop, and are returning with a fuller sound and a more developed set. We are Kayla Painter and Jon Worsley, and we take influence from all the music people. People have said it sounds like: experimental cheesecake, Modeselector, Thom Yorke, Lakota @ 3am, January never ends so stay indoors and make some sweet music. Happy with the feedback we have received we’re looking to expand on what we’re doing and you’ll hear more from us very soon.
If your intrigued to hear what KP and Jilk sound like in a lasagne together, come along to the Island tonight. Its free entry, suggested donation of £3 is welcome but not forced, and its not deemed (even by our social standards) as rude if you don’t want to donate.
You’ll also be delighted to hear some experimental auditory ness from Seth Cooke & Dominic Lash, and Timothy C Holehouse & Raxil4. Henry Lee Colins (aka Shitmat) has curated the night and will be joining in opening with a half an hour set.
Hope to see you there.
Times as follows:
1800-1830 – Shitmat
1830-1915 – Only You Can Reset it
1930-2000 – Seth Cooke and Dominic Lash
2015-2100 – Timothy C Holehouse and Raxil4
Audiophiles End Of Year Party!
As my music is very visual, the artwork was just as important as the audio. I chose to use images I’d taken whilst travelling around Scotland for the EP artwork, somewhere which can look very baron and harsh, a landscape that could easily be another planet, paired with a reference to The Prisoner (70s TV show). I have also took on the task of expanding the visual side live, by working with some visual artists who shared my vision and helped me realise it in a live context.
