Known as much for his eclectic studio projects as his jazz drumming, County Armagh musician, songwriter, producer, doctor of music and record label owner David Lyttle began performing professionally at the age of four in his family folk group The Lyttle Family and has gone on to tour in over fifteen countries. His recently-released third album ‘Faces’ features his collaborations with hip-hop visionary Talib Kweli, jazz icon Joe Lovano, Irish music star Duke Special and family singers Rhea and Anne Lyttle.
His media fans are just as diverse and include Rolling Stone magazine in the US, who hailed ‘Faces’ as one of this year’s best listening experiences, Japanese radio giant JWave, RTE Radio 1’s John Creedon and BBC’s Lauren Laverne. The album’s first single, ‘Lullaby For The Lost‘, topped the Jazz FM playlist in March and April. With major live dates at home and abroad, and ‘Faces’ commanding international attention, 2015 is David’s biggest year to date.
David Lyttle returns to Clifden playing tracks from ‘Faces’ featuring vocalists Rhea Lyttle and Anne Lyttle, rising star London-based rapper Zane, US jazz saxophonist Meilana Gillard, Derry keyboardist John Leighton and bassist Keith Duffy of The Corrs.
