MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST, VOCALIST & AWARD WINNING SONGWRITER
Austin, Texas based multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and award-winning songwriter Kit Holmes has been performing, composing, arranging and producing music professionally since the age of 13.
Her smooth and powerful jazz-infused, adult-contemporary songs have been scoring awards since she entered her first songwriting contest in 2004. Her latest CD The Bridge was a successful First-round entry in the 60th Annual Grammy Awards in EIGHT categories!
The track “One Long Road” from The Bridge was an Official Nominee in the Best American Roots Song and Song of the Year categories of the 2018 RoundGlass Music Awards!
With rave reviews from All About Jazz and Jazz Corner magazines, Kit’s 2011 release Return to Love was a 54th Annual GRAMMY Award Entry for Best Pop Vocal Album! The track “Bad Seed” was an Official Nominee in the Best Blues Song category of the 2017 Just Plain Folks Music Awards!
Kit’s musical vocabulary is vast, eclectic and always full of surprises. At her live shows you may hear a mash-up of Cannonball Adderley’s “Mercy, Mercy” with the theme from Sesame Street while she’s channeling Stevie Wonder. Her finely-crafted original tunes run the genre-gamut from smokey jazz ballads to masterfully-produced hip-hop riffs for spin classes at the gym. Throw in some guitar-driven Americana and folk, sensuous Latin grooves and some flat out fluffy-fun pop tunes and you get the picture: Kit is a prolific writer and engaging performer.
If all that doesn’t quite do it for you, Kit’s haunting instrumentals and spoken-word, guided meditations bring calmness, clarity and healing – and ease to mothers (and babies) during childbirth! (Really!!). Need a soundtrack for your life? Kit’s got it.
In addition to performing regularly at house concerts and listening rooms, conferences, and retreats around the country, Kit is an in-demand, guest speaker and workshop presenter on songwriting, creativity, personal transformation and things of a spiritual nature. Her “keynote concerts” masterfully blend her laugh-while-you-cry original songs with a powerful message about living life fully.
And, if that’s still not enough for you, Kit is also a phenomenal sound engineer and producer for hire.
