It can be difficult in these times to make yourself heard above the noise and it’s never been David’s style to fight to the front with brash sonics or fashion statements. His palette is ‘traditional’ – clean guitars, keyboards, bass, strings, horns, jazz-inflected drums – all tastefully arranged without anything ostentatious.
His soulful yearning and very English tenor provides a consistency to his stylistic roaming across everything from Pet Sounds orchestrations to sparser chamber pieces and Genesis-style progressive road-trips.
Having collaborated with many fine musicians in various line-ups, he regularly performs solo shows and house concerts. The effectiveness of this format in conveying the essence of his songs has been borne out in a number of successful UK tours.
