When David and I got the go ahead from Tim Smith, the owner of Papa Jazz, to start filming acoustic performances in the store, we began brainstorming about who we wanted to film. Both of us immediately said Kate and Jared Pyritz. While Kate and Jared, who go by the moniker King Vulture, have been working on a self-produced record, they haven’t actually debuted any of the material or played a proper gig. It seemed fitting to bring them in.
The project is based around Kate’s songwriting and powerfully-haunting voice while Jared gets to throw his uniquely, delightful weirdness all over the place. The result is a bittersweet pop sound decorated with an out-of-the-ordinary electronic atmosphere. Be on the look out for their debut release and enjoy King Vulture LIVE at Papa Jazz.
