Kit Malone is a performing songwriter from the Midwest. He plays a unique blend of fractured folk, country rock, primitive blues, urbane social satire, and sad sack songs about girls -- mostly in the key of G. While he doesn''t shy away from political commentary, Kit''s songs are also about fictional places and characters drawn from the mythology of the midwest. His songs of loss and personal failure appeal to a wide variety of audiences -- from local blue-collar bars to campus coffeehouses.
With quiet charisma, sly wordplay, and a wry sense of humor -- Kit has won over audience members and critics throughout the midwest. His music has been featured on the open mic section of NPR''s All Songs Considered, and he has also been recently featured as "Local Artist of the Week" by https://www.tradebit.com, NUVO, and WTTS 92.3 FM.
Yolonda, Kit''s latest full length CD, is available from Higher Step Records. Yolonda is a sonic examination of death loss, travel, and politics filtered through the lens of American cosmic music. Inspired by the death of a well-loved cat, Yolonda finds Kit experimenting with wider soundscapes, found instruments, and ambient arrangements -- all the while remaining true to his folksinger roots.
