About

David is a singer / song writer who almost died from a brain injury in 2017. After waking from a coma he'd lost his memory so didn't know who he was or what his life had been like.  

 

Over time, he realised he had been a musician and found songs he'd written in the past.  

He began to sell all his possessions to pay for recording costs and is working towards finishing the album which is called 'One Last Poem'.  

The songs are about distant lovers, far away places and stars in the sky.    

Mel Gaynor (Simple Minds) on drums and Michael Bailey (Chaka Khan) on bass form the rhythm section on 'Comeback' and 'Santa Monica' whilst Gilly Spencer plays piano on '4000 stars' and 'Havana'.  

                                                                      --------------------------------------------------------

He also discovered that he had been a world percussionist who played what is now called The Gathering of Drums. This became the foundation for his first TEDx talk which he gave at Edinburgh University in 2022.
