Overview

8pm Doors/DJ | 9pm Live Music 

It's a dance party, it's a jam session, it's a live concert series — and it always features the hottest talent on the scene!! Sittin' In is the free, monthly jam session at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. Blending edgy horns, choice vinyl, cutting edge MC's and soaring vocalists, each session is unique, led by a stellar lineup of guest hosts and their band of choice.

Kate Faust is, in her own words, "soulful, playful, and not for the faint of heart." One listen to her dynamic vocals and confessional-style writing confirms this declaration. Creating and digitizing her own beats, the Philadelphia-based pop artist seamlessly pronounces the message of eroticism, embracing strength and femininity throughout each self-curated track.

In 2014, Faust released her first EP, Crucial Companion, under Soulspazm. Kate’s second EP, Eros, released May 2015, takes guidance from Audre Lord’s essay, “The Uses of the Erotic.” 


Soon to be released, Faust's new EP titled, Capsizing, dives deeper into vast oceans of human experience through the lens of love and empowerment. Lush, magical dance beats like , "Your Body," roll into trance-like meditations in tracks like "Beyond Desire," and the EP's title track, "Capsizing."  With a growing richness and refreshing message, Faust will be touring this spring and summer performing for enthusiastic fans everywhere, from intimate venues to large public spaces.
