Described by Rolling Stone as 'one of the best, robust listening experiences you're likely to have all year', MOBO nominated Irish musician David Lyttle shifts seamlessly between the personas of jazz drummer, recording artist, composer and producer. His latest album Faces features collaborations with jazz icon Joe Lovano, hip hop visionary Talib Kweli and Irish music star Duke Special. It earned him nominations in the 2015 MOBO Awards and Urban Music Awards.
