About KEVIN LYTTLE:
Kevin was first inspired by music as a 7-year-old, sitting on his mother’s shoulders watching local Calypsonians competing for the title of Road March King in the yearly St. Vincent Carnival. At the same time, he cites the North American awards shows and televised performances– Michael Jackson’s moonwalk and "Billie Jean" in particular–that transfixed an entire generation of R&B and rap artists. "I’ve been influenced by all genres of music," says Lyttle. "I have a love for every form of art." While working a variety of day jobs, Lyttle cut his first professional record without success. Nonetheless, encouraged by his workmates, in 2001 he brought two songs to local producer Adrian Bailey, one of which was "Turn Me On." The session itself was deceptively easy. "I was done in two takes, less than an hour," says Kevin. "No one had heard me sing in this range; on St. Vincent, some people thought it was Beres Hammond doing soca. That was really flattering."
