Composing and Producing
I have a wide array of experience with commissioned recordings and compositions. I have over forty published compositions with Clearwave Music and Synctracks Music Production, including a dedicated album of solo piano music published on Clearwave. I produce professional-quality, mixed and mastered tracks in-house and have worked in a range of styles including jazz, pop, rap, children's music, folk, dance, piano music and music for screen. I am open to new ideas and challenges and will always put in the extra time required to make sure the job is done right.
I was approached by The Connected Set to work on a series they were producing for Snapchat. I was commissioned to write a series of rap songs about companies, such as Google, Tinder and Uber. My role involved writing the music and lyrics, producing and hiring the rapper.

Piano Music for Radio 4
Animator, Lisa Cooper asked me to compose music for a short video for BBC Radio 4's 'A British History in Weather' Series. I composed a mournful, ambient piano track for the video.
"David was a pleasure to work with and produced a very high quality piece of music for me. I was impressed by how swiftly he was able to deliver what I had asked for and was very satisfied with how quickly he responded to requests. I would definitely work with David again, he is very talented and I highly recommend him"

Parent and Child Exercise Music
I created over twenty tracks for, new parent and child exercise class, Rockabubz. I arranged and recorded various version of classic nursery rhymes, including a Hickory Dickory 'Rock' and a Hip Hop version of Humpty Dumpty. I also developed and arranged some of Jason's original songs.
"David was an absolute pleasure to have as part of our wedding day. He was an professional from start to finish. He was fantastic to work with prior to the wedding, and truly went the extra mile for us by learning an unusual piece for us. We had so many comments on David's playing during and after the wedding day; he played beautifully and his repertoire fitted perfectly with our wedding. David's style was fresh and unpretentious, which is so different to many of the more stuffy pianists we've seen at other weddings. We honestly cannot recommend David enough; we were so particular about our wedding day and wanted everything to be perfect, and David absolutely delivered. Thanks so much David!"

Production Library Music
I have been writing for various libraries, most prominently Clearwave Music, since 2013. I can write convincingly and effectively in a wide range of styles from rock, pop, jazz, electronic, cinematic, solo piano and acoustic.
"David composes intelligent and emotionally charged music with very high production values. His work has helped our company stand out in the international market"
