Eagerly Awaited Return for Dublin-Born Singer


DAVID Kitt will play The Nerve Centre, Magazine Street, Derry on Sunday, September 21.

Having spent the last two years locked away in his home studio, David Kitt (above) is now putting the finishing touches to his sixth studio album Slacky Tidy.

The album, featuring 10 brand new original songs, is scheduled for release at the end of the year. The last two years in studio have been Kitt's most productive, yielding about thirty other tracks - some of which are set for release early in the new year under the name Spilly Walker.

Over the years, Dublin-born David Kitt has more than proved himself as a writer and a performer.

He first stole the public's attention with the tingling soft focus home-recorded debut album Small Moments, freely outshining the favoured acoustica movement of the time with the sheer depth of feel of his songs.

His second album, The Big Romance, revealed a myriad of sounds; quietly fizzing and popping German-informed electronics, impressionistic and elemental lyrical portraits, composite vocal harmonies and driving atmospheric guitars.

His third album, Square One, documented a songwriter coming of age, applying his previous exploration of exciting new sounds and techniques into a record of unabashed clarity and soul.

Square One was also the glorious freewheelin' soundtrack to David Kitt falling in love. His last album, 'Not Fade Away', was met with massive critical acclaim and further cemented his reputation as one of the finest solo artists in Ireland. Be among the first to hear David perform some tunes from 'Slacky Tidy' as he previews them along with some old classics at The Nerve Centre on Sunday, September 21.

Support acts to be announced. Tickets are now on sale at the Nerve Centre box office. Tickets on sale online at http:// /event/35786.
