David Woodcock Short Info

Southend-on-Sea singer-songwriter David Woodcock released his self-titled debut to great acclaim this August.

David's songs are steeped in the classic British song writing tradition epitomised by the likes of Ray Davies, Steve Harley and Ian Dury. Lyrics filled with humour, pathos, wry observations and a riotous energy. There’s an air of Vivian Stanshall as a drunken Harry Nilsson, Pete Doherty with a clean bill of health or Damon Albarn in young, cocky scamp mode. Live, David works the room to the max, and on record that energy remains ...tales of lost love, lust, jealousy, regrets and of living life to its messy limits and all the consequences that entails...

His last single 'Relatively Single Man' was a BBC 6 Music Rebel Playlist winner, all singles receiving strong UK radio support from key tastemakers inc. Steve Lamacq and Marc Riley (BBC 6 Music), John Kennedy (Xfm X-posure Hot One), and Gary Crowley (BBC London + Amazing Radio).

"Biting lyrics and catchy pop tunes" VIVE LE ROCK
