David Lyttle (NI)

Described by Rolling Stone as 'one of the best, robust listening experiences you're likely to have all year', MOBO and Urban Music Award nominated David Lyttle shifts seamlessly between the personas of jazz drummer, recording artist, composer, producer and record label owner. He has performed in twenty countries and worked with a variety of international jazz and hip hop icons, including Joe Lovano and Talib Kweli who feature on his latest album 'Faces'. Earlier this year David traveled to the U.S. to carry out his fourth artist residency, performing for cowboys, UFO tourists, bikers and the unsuspecting public in an attempt to understand what people really think of jazz. Later in the year he'll spend seven weeks in China as the British Council's Musician In Residence.
