Denton Peschier (aka Gitta Dan) always sang. As a child, he sang in church and Sunday School, and later, on the block with his friends. A childhood spent listening to Bob Marley, Sizzla, Capleton, Luciano, Burning Spears, fostered his love of reggae and led to the development of his own unique style.
After his first stage performance at Holy Cross College, Gitta started to make a name for himself on the gospel music circuit, eventually gaining the attention of gospel artiste, Sherwin Gardiner. With Gardiner’s support, he officially launched his music career in 1995 as part of the gospel reggae dancehall duo "Tiko and Gitta". Together, they released “Royal Priesthood” (2002), a critically acclaimed album, and went on tour, performing in St. Lucia, Barbados, Anguilla, Guyana, and Antigua. Launching out on his own, Gitta continued to build his music and support base, performing at schools, clubs, homes, fundraisers and the beach with his box guitar.
He is a prolific songwriter and has developed a unique style of performing, by mixing reggae with dancehall while maintaining an organic and acoustic flavor.
In 2005, Gitta released his album, "Reggaematic Worship", described by Mark Mohr of Christafari as being “full of clever lyrics and catchy melodies” and went on tour to promote it. His music covers the themes of salvation, love and democracy, a reflection of his relationship with God and love for people..
An ordained elder and Youth Pastor at his church, he continues to perform and is currently preparing to go on tour.
