Lyte Records is a label that focuses on hip hop, folk and classical, but mainly jazz. Based in Northern Ireland, it was founded by musician, songwriter and producer David Lyttle in 2007.
David gives his thoughts on how live performances are crucial for independent musicians, the jazz scene in Ireland and how he releases internationally renowned artists.
There is also music and chat from Meilana Gillard, a jazz saxophonist, who moved from New York to Northern Ireland, who examines the difference between the two country’s music scenes. Tony Wright from VerseChorusVerse is on the phone to explain his creative process. We hear music from all of their projects and the acclaimed Jean Toussaint.
