David Kitt – YOUS

Kicking of the Easter weekend in fine style, the Whale Theatre is delighted to host the acclaimed Irish singer songwriter David Kitt for the launch of his 7th album ‘Yous’. 

Describing his first solo record for nine years as “the most free I’ve felt making a record since my debut Small Moments”, the record was largely done by Kitt at his Dublin home,  although old friend and collaborator, Karl Odlum, pops up, and Margie Lewis’s violin plays a crucial role throughout the record, as does Ireland, and more specifically, Dublin. The city, surrounding countryside, and its inhabitants, are a constant thread throughout, giving the album the feel of a personal travelogue that spans two decades. 

‘Yous’ is a finely wrought and elemental piece of work, folding in electronic hisses and beats that ground carefully finger-picked guitars (inspired by the likes of Mississippi John Hurt and John Fahey) and stirring violin, weaving between glorious pop-kissed melodies and stark, immersive, poignant compositions – something  Kitt does so well. 

For the live show David will be joined by Margie on violin for what promises to be a refreshing and intimate musical experience in the Whale Theatre.

Support on the night comes from the multi-talented Greystonian Jonny Dillon, no stranger to the guitar styles of the Mississippi himself.
