David Kitt is an Irish musician and producer who has managed to carve a highly successful name for himself across a multiple of genres. He grew up surrounded by music, and he began performing live sets while studying music technology at Trinity College, Dublin.
In 2001 he released his biggest selling record, The Big Romance, an album filled with ambient textures and looping pop mantras.
His most recent album is The Nightsaver, his sixth LP. The result of two years of late-night experimentation caught in the reverie of writing and recording in a home studio at the top of a winding staircase somewhere along Dublin’s Grand Canal.
Since mid-2007, David has been making house music with his brother, Robbie under the pseudonym Spilly Walker. He has also been a member of Tindersticks since their 2010 “Falling Down a Mountain” album and tour. In 2011, he celebrated the 10 year anniversary of The Big Romance with a performance (to a full house) in Dublin’s Vicar Street.
