Kitty Got Claws & Graver Ekow

On 19 September, three of our CirKT artists performed at the Fighting Cocks, one of the most famous live music venues in Kingston.

Kitty Got Claws is a fantastic rapper, singer and spoken word poet. Her dark and impactful writing and performance intends to break stigma surrounding mental health using stories and narrative.  Her work has been featured on BBC Introducing and she recently played at Boomtown.

Graver Ekow are a queer British Hip Hop duo, holding a retro futuristic lens to the world. Their cathartic lyrics invite listeners to join them in holding a middle finger to the mainstream, while nestling in DIY pop sensibilities. The result is a controlled chaos of genre-defying Hip Hop that explores the highs and lows of humanity.

London-born Mr Ekow and Norfolk-born Graver met in 2018 after meeting on a well-known dating app, which shall not be named. The two have been together since and their unique chemistry shines through their music.

Once again, a huge thanks to the Kingston crowd for coming to support CirKT and live music in Kingston.
