EXCITING COLLABORATION IN LAST LEG OF PROJEKTOR CAMPAIGN:
My name is Alex St. Kitts. You probably know me as a bass player from Toronto. I've been lucky enough to play with some great artists around the world - SATE, Francesco Yates, K-OS, Derek Miller, and Ed Sheeran, to name a few. I've been working on a trilogy of my own original music. This trilogy has been about finding my voice as a songwriter and connecting with listeners on a new level.
In February 2015 I released the first EP of the trilogy - The Projektor Part I. Now I'm back in the studio recording Part II & III.

ABOUT THE MUSIC
The Projektor Part II is a 5 song EP that's focused on some of my earliest musical influences, ranging from The Beatles, early Motown artists like Stevie Wonder & The Jackson 5, and even touches on the feeling when I first heard The Police. It's a bit more light hearted, for simply driving around with someone you love, to trying to re-create the feeling of a dream. Yet, it still talks about things like not waiting for a solution to problems you can help fix, and that fumbly reoccurring topic of love.
The Projektor Part III talks about trying to understand where your place is in this world, as well as how others have been displaced. Sometimes its a tale of a drunken stumble on the street one night, sometimes it's about the neurosis of how everyone perceives one another. These 5 songs give more of a look into the present and future with it's Electro-soul vibes.
During this process I also wanted to learn how to produce my own music and create with elements that are readily available for any singer/songwriter/musician. So each EP also contains wholly self-produced interludes. Everything you hear on these specific tracks, I did by myself out of my home studio. This was a big endeavour for me, having always played with, and for, others and never really focusing on my solo creative voice. The goal was to be able to create music no matter where I was, and with that these "interludes", as I call them, were born.
