David Lyttle Presents

at Nerve Centre, Derry

This event has been and gone.

MOBO-nominee David Lyttle brings to a close his hugely successful year as Nerve Centre Musician in Residence with a grand finale showcase concert, featuring some very special guests.

New music created in collaboration with musicians, songwriters, bands and producers from across the city and local area will feature heavily on the night, whetting our appetites for the gems in store for the companion album release due early 2016.

Perhaps best known as a prodigious jazz drummer in his early career, Lyttle has gone on to be described by Irish music magazine Hot Press as a 'one-man industry' for his work as a performer, producer and record label owner.

His diverse collaborations range from hip hop visionary Talib Kweli to jazz icon Joe Lovano to Irish recording artist Duke Special, who all feature on his third album Faces recently described by Rolling Stone as "one of the best, robust listening experiences you're likely to have all year'.

Former Musician in Residence, Neil Cowley, will also make a welcome return to the Nerve Centre stage for a unique, one-off collaboration with Lyttle. Describing Derry as ‘his second home’ the multi-award-winning artist is looking forward to the celebration of musical creativity and kinship.

The Nerve Centre’s residency is funded by the PRS for Music Foundation, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Derry City and Strabane District Council through the City of Culture Legacy fund and the National Lottery via the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
