Kat Zolita Mason is a "sub rosa piano girl"
Her songs tell true stories from the undergrowth, many are passionate and epic, all telling stories from the upside-down world of truth and poetry.
Her first C.D. (but second recording), was recorded when she was only 16 years old in 1980. It was called "THE WITCHES
IN THE MASK-LANDS" -it comes with a 28 page booklet of lyrics with childhood drawings. It is an album with a theme and it tells the story of the masks adults wear in life -- its seen from the point of view of the witches in the play.... it is done as a musical play in three acts. Each act explores each of the masks people wear and tells the characters personal stories.
Then followed the dark-haired and moody album "Gothic Fairytales" 1994.
Her more recent CD called "Sub Rosa" are the songs that are first on here.
Its never been officially released or had backing tracks added so tis a live recording. She's since written a new album and is looking for a recording contract or for help to record it and get it out to the public. This new one is katchier, hookier and more upbeat than the previous albums.
She is a prolific songwriter, an ideas person and she loves performing.
From a review: "-She plays piano and sings at the same time, often howling like a banshee or like a selkie fancying a return to the wild waves of the sea .
She lives in the green New Zealand hills, where she plays on her grandmothers old upright piano while wearing wearing supernatural green lipstick and black nail-varnish wearing a long evening dress with her rain-boots on and a leopard-skin hat". She is also an actress and has performed many time in the theatre doing leading roles in Shakespeare and the classics as well as some quirky underground New Zealand films
She's looking forward to help getting a producer giving her songs the treatment they have never had - with other studio musicians backing her -and with a recording contract. She feels like she needs helping her to get the music out as has worked alone for many many years and she has recently realised that attempting to do everything by herself is just not going to work out as no-one can do everything by themselves!! No man or woman is an island- though perhaps she does her best to at least remain a peninsula.... ; ) : ) She shoots and makes the music videos on here by herself. She is hungry to get the music out to the world in proper completed form.
Her favourite saying is "Believe in Love and Magic", and despite a few setbacks- she still does! Love and Light with green pinches of fairy dust for good luck........ Kat Zolita Mason X0X
