The background of singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist of David Kitt may, at first glance, seem typical for an artist of his talent. Emerging from the influence of a musical family, with a father and uncles and aunts sharing duties in a successful touring folk band, it’s hardly surprising that Kitt also embarked on a similar, musically enriching path, leading to a period of unexpected chart success. 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. With more releases incoming 2023 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.
