Sparkly Bird

Kat Lee-Ryan is a highly talented local singer songwriter and keyboard player. Colourful. Flamboyant. Very much her own woman. One of a kind. Kat’s voice is both haunting and powerful; she’s one of those people, who you feel is singing and writing about her real life experiences. And that’s exactly what Sparkly Bird is – a uniquely personal musical journey. HOT’s Zelly Restorick reports.

The Fabulous Red Diesel – fuel for life!

The Fabulous Red Diesel have been adding colour to Hastings and St Leonards for about ten years now. Fuelled by the dynamo combination of Kat and Will Lee-Ryan, they have been instrumental in staging the Bohemia Village Fayre and have performed at St Leonards Festival – as well as headlining at HOT’s launch party three years ago. Recently, the band have been putting their focus into recording, whilst pondering universal questions. “We Know it’s 43” is the result – HOT’s Erica Smith donned her headphones for a listen.
