Lucie Thorne presents her extraordinary new art/pop concept record Kitty & Frank. Kitty & Frank traces the wild true stories of young frontier woman Kitty Walsh and her lover, the charismatic bandit & bushranger Frank Gardiner. In the 1860’s Gold Fever came to Wheogo NSW and like Deadwood, it didn’t end well.

Painting landscapes with dream-soaked synths, irresistible beats, poetry and pathos, Thorne has woven an astonishing arc of vignettes to create an album which is at once timeless and utterly modern. Delivered live with Thorne’s trademark story-telling warmth and charm, Kitty & Frank spans a tale of Shakespearean proportions. All this at the hands of one of Australia's finest song-poets who has ventured to triumphant new ground with staggering certitude.

“Thorne conjures a simple narrative flow that, like a Raymond Carver story, transforms everyday life into high art” (Canberra Times)
