Kevin Lyttle ready to “turn on” Sri Lanka

Singer Kevin Lyttle arrived in Sri Lanka today (Tuesday December 27) for a one off concert with Iyaz and Mann.

An upbeat Brad Hemmings, their Agent and Tour Manager from Foreign Exchange Entertainment aka 4X Ent told The Hub in a short facebook message after arriving in Sri Lanka that both Iyaz and Mann will arrive later tonight.

“Tell them (Sri Lanka) we are here…It is on,” Hemmings said.

Kevin Lyttle (born Lescott Kevin Lyttle Coombs, 14 September 1976) is a soca artist hailing from Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, who had a worldwide hit with “Turn Me On”, which was recorded by Lyttle and the dancehall artist Spragga Benz.

The song started finding its way into clubs in the UK. It was officially released as a single in the UK in late 2003 and reached number two in its first week, spending seven weeks in the Top 10 of the UK Singles Chart.

It later reached number eleven in Finland and number three in Australia; and was a hit in other twelve countries. The single was released in the U.S. in 2004 and the video was added to MTV on 24 May 2004. “Turn Me On” eventually went gold in the U.S. and peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100.

Lyttle signed with Atlantic Records in 2003. His self-titled album was released on 27 July 2004 in the U.S. The second single, “Last Drop”, has been released in markets outside the U.S., and has reached the Top 10 in Finland, the Top 20 in Switzerland, the Top 30 in the UK and Top 40 in the Netherlands, Sweden, and Australia.

Along with Byron Lee and Arrow, he performed at the Cricket World Cup 2007 opening ceremony in Greenfield Stadium, Jamaica.

Kevin Lyttle returns this year with the sweet vocals that made him a household name on his new joint, “Wine Go Down,” released on his very own Tarakon Records.

The singer/songwriter teams up with Richy Peña, talented music producer of the Latin Grammy-Winning Album Mi Niña Bonita, for the sizzling single that he’s taking to the 2012 carnival season and across the globe.
