Spotlight Kid is a Nottingham-based shoegaze band whose original lineup of Six By Seven drummer Chris Davis on vocals and guitars, Katty Heath (formerly of Bent) also on vocals, Karl Skivington on guitar and Kev Bales (from Spiritualized) on drums.
Chris Davis conceived the band towards the end of 2005 when Six By Seven had reached a cross roads. He decided to go it alone, having already written a number of songs, leaving Six By Seven in March 2006, although he rejoined in February 2007. Former Bent singer and long time friend Katty Heath then joined the fold, and after six months the first album was complete. James Flower and Sam Hempton of Six By Seven also lent a hand to a number of tracks.
After a number of lineups in the preceding years and after a second hiatus from Six by Seven, Spotlight Kid relaunched as a full band with new members. With Chris and Karl the new additions were on Guitar Chris Moore (formerly of Model Morning and Echoboy), on Guitar Rob McCleary (former of Model Morning), on Bass Richard Davidson (formerly of Model Morning and on Vocals Lisa Deville (whom also performs under her own name as a solo artist).
The band are currently writing, recording new tracks for a new album and playing live.
