The Daisy Roots EP Its fun, quirky and full of energy, & whilst it fully reflects Kitchy Retros’ love of music from the American New York Jazz and New Orleans Blues music scene of the 1920s-40s, it is by no means dated. It has plenty of rhythm with a warm and inviting sound reminiscent of the 40s recordings studios. Great vocals and lead guitar By Lead singer Mark Scott and superb Slap Bass by Lucy Dawlish
Kitchy Retros modern take on the Americana music scene means their music is Vibrant, Funky and tells a story from American Roots to New Orleans jazz clubs. From the New York speakeasies to Louisiana cotton fields and the bluegrass sound of the Appalachian Mountains.
It’s obvious to see where they get their inspiration for their own songs like ‘Daisy’,’ Mr 78 Man’, ‘Onslow Street’ and their first single ‘The Banker’.
Their show combines Marks warm melt in your heart vocals and cool guitar riffs & Lucy’s big, modern & funky bass guitar style. Both styles are reminiscent of yesteryear yet modern and dynamic and well suited to the music they play. So its not surprising that Kitchy Retro are going from strength to strength and getting the following they do. There definitely ones to watch for the future.

This Debut Single bursts to life from the moment you hit the play button. The percussive blend of acoustic guitar, electric bass and smooth male vocals will have you singing along in no time to this 'foot stompin' country tune with a great chorus.
6 - Daisy (Radio Edit)
Daisy but with a Club Beat great for the radio station with a more modern audience – right from the outset of writing this song Mark and Lucy could here this beat sitting in the background even though it wasn’t. a Fun addition to Kitchy Retro’s repertoire
