About David

Music has always been my passion. Since learning to play cornet at the age of 4 through drumming, singing and playing guitar; my life with music has continued to evolve.

It was when I first secured a record deal as a solo artist in 1999 that my fascination with the recording and producing process started. While I continued to make music, first as a solo artist, then over a decade in various bands (including AloneMe and later, The Floe), the pull to the production side of making music strengthened.

I started by recording my own band’s material and producing various other local artists in my growing studio during the early 'noughties'. Later I got to work alongside some top producers including Nigel Stonier (Thea Gilmore, Mike Scott & The Waterboys, Clare Teal…), Mike Cave (The Charlatans, John Martyn, The Zutons…) and Simon Gogerly (U2, Paloma Faith, Gwen Stefani…).

My role as an engineer and producer is to capture and bring out the best in your performance, your music, your songs. A minimum of fuss and a strong emphasis on creating a relaxed, creative environment. I can also be the extra band member (but with fresh ears to your songs), the sounding board for ideas and the calm voice of reason when the nerves kick in.
