We are excited to welcome VerseChorusVerse, one of Ireland's most exciting new singer/songwriters, to Lyte Records for the release of Say & Do, a collaborative roots album with David Lyttle. The pair met when Tony Wright, aka VerseChorusVerse, visited David's Nerve Centre Musician-In-Residence studio in Derry to collaborate earlier this year. After finding common ground in the iconic singer/songwriters, American hip hop and the blues, their initial collaboration has quickly grown into a studio album and a live project. Say & Do was recorded with two microphones over a total of fourteen hours and has minimal post production. The results speak for themselves: amidst a sea of fabrication and sweeteners this is in every sense real, honest and a lot of fun. With radio play on Today FM, RTE 2FM and BBC radio, and hugely positive media support from Hot Press and the Irish News in the run-in to its low-key release, plus a subsequent Amazon UK blues chart No. 1 and top 20 chart placements on iTunes UK and Ireland, Say & Do looks set to be a key Irish release for 2015.

VerseChorusVerse was born in 2011 after Tony Wright left Northern Irish instrumental rock band And So I Watch You From Afar. He has since gigged extensively across the UK and Europe from major festivals to intimate house shows and in 2013 released his debut album VerseChorusVerse, produced by Ivor Novello winner Iain Archer, formerly of Snow Patrol. A passionate live performer and a prolific songwriter with a knack for telling it like it is, be it factually or fictionally, he has had personal invitations from artists as diverse as Daniel Johnston, Bronagh Gallagher, Jesse Malin, Andy Cairns, Devin Townsend and Tim Wheeler to join them on tour.

MOBO and Urban Music Awards-nominated David Lyttle is known as much for his eclectic studio projects as his jazz drumming. Starting out a child performer in his family band he has gone on to release three solo albums on his own Lyte Records label and tour in over fifteen countries. On his most recent album Faces he adopts the role of instrumentalist, songwriter, producer and singer. It was described by Rolling Stone as "one of the best, robust listening experiences you're likely to have this year" and features a long list of collaborators from US rap star Talib Kweli to jazz icon Joe Lovano to Duke Special.
