David Lyttle David Lyttle

Described by Rolling Stone magazine as “one of the best, robust listening experiences you're likely to have all year” and by the Independent as “the best in jazz coming out of Ireland today”, MOBO Award-nominated David Lyttle shifts seamlessly between the personas of jazz drummer, recording artist, composer/songwriter, producer and record label owner. Starting out as a child performer at the age of four with his family band, he first reached a national audience as a jazz performer in the band of legendary guitarist Louis Stewart, before going on to perform around the world and develop associations with jazz icons Joe Lovano, Jason Rebello and Jean Toussaint, and hip hop visionaries Talib Kweli and Soweto Kinch. The release of his third album, Faces, led to nominations in the MOBO Awards and Urban Music Awards and major radio. On Jazz FM 'Lullaby For The Lost' and 'The Second Line' each topped the playlist for over a month, making David one of their most played artists across 2015 and 2016.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
