Kittie Bassist Trish Doan Dead at 31
Kittie Bassist Trish Doan has died according to her bandmates. She was 31.
Her cause of death has not been revealed.
A post on Kittie’s official Facebook page said:
"It is with immeasurable sadness that we share news of the passing of our sister and best friend Trish Doan.
"Finding the right words is tough. She was so bright and vibrant and talented and we loved her and still do. She was so much more than just a musician or member of the band. She was our blood, our sister and family. Finding our way without her will be challenging, like a ship without a lighthouse, and we are devastated.
"We ask that you please respect our privacy and her family's privacy during this difficult time."
Former Kittie bassist Ivy Vujic Jenkins also paid tribute to Doan on her personal Facebook page. Jenkins wrote:
"Anyone who has ever met Trish Doan knows that she was one of the sweetest, kindest, most down-to-earth people on this planet. I loved seeing her beautiful photos of Australian sunsets and city skylines, and nerding out about bass gear and geeky tech stuff.
"Everyone loved Trish more than she ever realized. She has left an imprint on so many lives. Her memory and legacy will outlive her physical form for many years to come.
"Much love to Trish's family, friends and all of the world that was touched by her presence.
"Trish, you are loved and greatly missed."
Doan joined Kittie in 2005, but departed in 2007 due to her struggles with an eating disorder. She then rejoined the band again in 2012. Her contributions appear on Kittie’s 2006 EP, ‘Never Again,’ as well as 2007’s full-length, ‘Funeral for Yesterday.’
