“One of the most life-affirming, chilled-out gigs I’ve been to.” Fringe Review

The Kites are a sum of three significant parts – as songwriters in their own right, they are singer and virtuoso guitarist Mark Allen, soul vocalist and percussionist Jack Cryer and rhythm man with a dreamy voice Matt Hodgson.

They share a close relationship with guitar maestro Richard Durrant and his label LongMan Records.  Mark Allen was one third of Ungagged with Richard and Tom Arnold, while Jack Cryer has entertained the warm Shoreham audiences many times as a solo artist at the Airport Club.

Together, The Kites have enjoyed many intimate and soulful gigs, with their close harmonies and original songs, bringing audiences to tears (good tears!). Their style is part folk, blues and soul. With years of solo writing and performing experience behind them it has been this magical chemistry of voices and instruments that has truly fed them as artists – that, and a long-time love of Shoreham and the sea.
