Today marks the release of my new track Drones through Turnstile Music. Whilst I was finishing writing the track I had some ideas of how I wanted the video to look. Those ideas developed, and I kept feeding them until it grew into something coherent.
So then, I decided to take the role of being a director in the video. I had such strong feelings and thoughts about how the video should appear, it was the only logical step. Drones is the first ever music video I have directed, and it was certainly a challenge. Without the help and support of Jason Baker it would have not been possible at all. Jason, Mandi and Flavien were a great team to work with and I owe them a lot for helping me bring my vision to life.
It brings me so much pleasure to release this track and video out into the world!!

I will be joining 12 other female musicians from across the UK next week for the Artistic Director Series, this year being led by Beth Orton. I am thrilled to announce i’ll be joining women in hope to raise the profile of women in music, which Brighter Sound decided to highlight as previous years applications showed a vast under representation of women.

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
Yesterday I played a set at No.51 on Stokes Croft in Bristol. Drawn Recordings – Bank Holiday all dayer.
I was on at 8pm and by this time the live drawing had just come to a finish in the garden and the evening was kicking off. Was great fun to play another venue in Bristol, and to be involved with such a nice event. I followed a folky duo on to the stage and played for half an hour. After my set was Bannau (Jamie Thomas) – also a graduate from the music course at Newport University.Was a lovely night and a good way to enjoy the bank holiday monday.
