Biography of a Chick Singa

Kit Holliday has been singing professionally for over half her life. She's sung and played in styles from rock to musical theatre to blues, jazz, and gospel, as lead or backup for other professionals and chick singas.

In 2005, Kit was voted Outstanding Female Vocalist in the 2005 Blues Audience Readers Poll. During her stint with The Matthew Stubbs Band, she and the band won the 2003 Boston Blues Challenge. In 2004, Kit and the band travelled to Memphis to bring home third place in the International Blues Challenge.

Kit spent much of 2006 and 2007 playing and touring with Ricky "King" Russell, and other great area musicians. Between 2007-2015, she also lent her singing and music direction talents to funk and disco favorites Booty Vortex.

In 2008, Kit began fronting her own ensemble, and spent 2009 and 2010 "putting the band back together" before shelving the project to work with many other groups in the Boston area. Lately she keeps her schedule marginally less busy and focuses on supporting touring acts as a backup singer with The Lady Parts (also featuring Lydia "The Lovely Singer" Harrell).

Her newest blues project, The Ominous Vultures (with Monster Mike Welch and Jesse Williams), aka The Restless Wonders, aka Kit Holliday & Her Boyfriends' Band, launched in 2017.

Kit sings all over town (often to her great surprise), and was probably singing in that bar you were in last night. She has been rumored to favor singing songs One Wouldn't Want Mother To Hear, songs One Wouldn't Want The Preacher To Hear, and songs about chickens.

Kit also brought that stuff you forgot to bring to the gig.
