David Edward Booth: UK-based music producer, multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter!
Although better known now for his work as an in-demand producer, session musician, collaborator and co-writer, David Edward Booth has always been a singer-songwriter at heart.
1999 brought David his first record deal, and a foot in the door of the industry, followed by ten years of hard work and quiet critical praise in the UK with bands AloneMe and The Floe, crossing paths with some great folk including Nigel Stonier (Thea Gilmore, Mike Scott…), Mike Cave (The Charlatans, The Zutons…), Midge Ure, Paul Young, Ade Edmonson, Simon Gogerly, Bob Harris…
In 2010 David decided he’d had enough, but during that first decade in music, a studio had been built, production skills learned, and so he happily turned to producing other artists.
In the background though, David has continued to write songs for himself and in the summer of 2018 a new David Edward Booth album “Away Away” was gently released into being, in much the same way as his style of studio engineering and producing: minimal fuss, maximum focus on the songs.
2018/19 also brought ‘Bayfield Booth’, the heart-felt but sadly all too brief collaboration, packed festival tents and album “A New Way On” with Suffolk singer & story-teller Mat Bayfield. Mat lost his long battle with a brain tumour in October 2019, but continues to inspire.
It was this collaboration and this loss that spurred David on, alongside his close friend, and Mat’s wife, singer-songwriter Kelly Bayfield to lose no more time and stop shying away from performing their own songs. 2020 will see new single releases from David, and a debut solo album from Kelly.
