David Kirton

All Island

David Kirton is an award-winning Reggae crossover singer-songwriter from the Caribbean island of Barbados and has been a quiet storm over the past decade, building a solid catalogue of radio friendly guitar driven songs with reggae rhythms. Kirton says “It was Roots Reggae that captured my senses.

My progression as an artist came because I was more relaxed, didn’t try to fit into a trendy box, just let my songs flow and represent what I felt inside when I sat down to write them. I feel very comfortable making music my own way, rather than trying to fit in anyone’s boots. I love having the freedom to touch people and find success following my own vision.”

It all started in a beach side wood shack, quickly moving to a well-received Midem Cannes Showcase in 1999. David has since been awarded multiple Barbados Music Awards including Reggae Artist of the Year and toured the US, opening for the likes of Third World, Steel Pulse, Maxi Priest and Joseph Culture Hill. His trajectory has continued with US and UK tours, multiple festival appearances and various renowned events including Royal Chelsea Flower Show, Toronto Youth Day, Hollywood Bowl Summer Sounds, Reggae on the River, SXSW, Greek Theater Berkeley, Bob Marley Day Long Beach, The Virgin Atlantic Music Festival and Reggae on the Boardwalk in Barbados. Kirton’s previous album ‘Time For Change’ produced the hit Green Camouflage, which charted in Canada, Barbados and dominated the MTV Tempo Charts for over 14 weeks.

David’s unique and accessible ‘feel good’ sound is displayed on his fifth studio album ‘All Island’, produced and recorded in Jamaica with Mikie Bennett. Peppered with infectious hooks, solid drums and bass and tight harmonies, we find reflections of personal and universal truth. Topics like weaponized mosquitoes, human displacement and green industries make you dance, shout, rally, love and laugh.
