About David Kitt
Kitt’s inconspicuous debut album, ‘Small Moments’, was a slow-burn collection of lo-fi recordings that crept up on the record-buying public in 2000, helping to re-establish vaunted indie label Rough Trade in the process, leading to the breakthrough success of his sophomore LP, ‘The Big Romance’. In 2002, Kitt even appeared as part of Meltdown Festival in London, as curated by David Bowie.
Kitt’s follow-up, ‘Square 1’, debuted atop the Irish charts in the balmy summer of 2003. Kitt’s initial success aligned him with a then-burgeoning scene of radio-friendly indie and folk rock breakthrough acts, including David Gray, with whom Kitt has regularly toured alongside as a supporting musician. However, Kitt was quickly drawn into his wider sphere of influences, from optimistic, MPC-driven hip-hop, melancholic Arthur Russell- esque funk and the more traditional but ambitious folk of his heritage. Each of these avenues were wandered at ease throughout 2004’s ‘The Black and Red Notebook’ and it’s follow-up ‘Not Fade Away’, which saw Kitt return to Rough Trade in 2006.
With more releases incoming on All City and beyond, Kitt remains a unique, sincere artist and songwriter, able to meld influences, eras and sound with a timelessness earned after more than twenty years immersed in music.
