David Kitt was born in Dublin in 1975 and he graduated from the famous Trinity College in his home city after a course in music technology during which he recorded and mixed the songs for his debut release, Small Moments, on a digital eight-track in his bedroom.

His next two albums, The Big Romance (2001) and Square One (2003) were absolutely massive in Ireland, and it was while I was visiting Dublin just after the release of the latter that I first came upon him, with friends absolutely raving about him.

I kept an eye on him for the remainder of the decade, catching him live a few times, including shows where he was the support act for Tindersticks, a band he would later become a full member of between 2010 and 2013. I haven’t followed him much since then, but if he is still in the business, then I’m sure he’ll still have a broad fanbase in his homeland.

This is a lovely, fragile and wonderfully-scored ballad from Square One and a Top 10 single for him in 2003:-
