David was born in Jersey, Channel Islands in 1981. He played his first bass aged 14 and was influenced by the heavy grooves of Flea, the mighty tone of Jah Wobble and the wacky-genius of Primus. He received a BMus in Jazz & Contemporary Music from Leeds College of Music and went on to study Glitch Music for his MMus at Newcastle University where he is now employed as Studio Manager/Music Technician. He regularly mixes, records and produces for artists from many different genres of music. If you have any enquiries, do get in touch!
