Galway, County Galway
David is an outstanding musician and singer/songwriter based in Galway. While being known for his rock oriented performances on acoustic and electric guitar, his most recent recordings written on piano have a far more personal and soulful quality. In them he covers themes of emotional manipulation and the pressures of conforming to social groups. He also writes with a social perspective, responding to issues he sees as important such as the legacy of the Magdalene laundries and the ongoing refugee crisis. This can be seen in the song "The washing tide" which he says was spurred by some of the haunting photographs that circulated during the peak of the crisis' media attention. As well as this his lyrics were recently included in a publication by the Writers Society in NUI Galway, where he is currently studying for a Ba in Englush and Philosophy with Creative Writing.
