Don't let his long golden dreadlocks fool you, David Kirton's sound and aura is far from a 'typical' reggae artist. His music is a unique hybrid of rock - pop and reggae that moves past the reverent Caribbean rhythms of the past and on to the airwaves, dance floors and digital devices of future. It sits comfortably in play lists surrounded by Jack Johnson, Nora Jones, Sting, Bob Marley, Seal and Ben Harper. Kirton's fans are not looking for Prison stories, hate messages or graphic sex songs to download on their ipod. His music touches the heart, head and feet, making you feel, think and dance.
Courted in the past by numerous major US labels Kirton chose to be part of the new generation of artists who embraced the modern music business model by owning his record label and publishing house. Developing his music with producers, producing music videos and promotional material, consistent touring and developing a fan base with out the backing of a big label are all part of his journey. Far from sounding or looking like a low budget project Kirton and his team have been able to pull together an award winning album, three top quality music videos and a Barrack Obama Time for Change Music video remix that rivals the quality and vision of any high budget project done today. His label Bird's Eye Music has distribution with Soul Kiss / Universal for Canada, Nova / Pinnacle for the UK and The Orchard for digital. With these bases covered Kirton is ready make his mark.
