About davidhosking



David Hosking is a rare jewel in the crown of songwriting. With a voice that is endearing, honest, tender but full of life. His stage performance is warm, open, raw, gritty with an abundance of soul. The story telling speaks in a language that grabs a part of the human heart of which you can do nothing but cherish for life. David’s voice is reminiscent of Nick Cave meeting Nick Drake being smashed in the middle by early Tom Waits.

David from Melbourne, Australia has been writing, recording and touring for over 20 years with multiple successful tours opening for Eddie Reader, Foy Vance, The Waifs, Ron Sexsmith, Boo Hewerdine, Chris Wilson, Shane O’Mara, Rebecca Barnard, Shelly Scown, comedian Glynn Nicholas & Crowded House engineer Paul Kosky throughout Australia, UK and Europe.

To date David has released eight albums, and built a large and loyal following in Australia, Europe and Ireland. Through the passing of each season Davids touring, writing and recordings have moved in fresh new directions. His last two albums “All That Beauty” & the just released "Butterfly Net" were recorded & produced by Paul “Hammy” Hamilton from Bangor County Down in Ireland - "Mostly known for his playing and producing and MD for singer song writer Foy Vance".

Adding beautiful, haunting and original string arrangements to "Butterfly Net", Michael Keeney also the albums mixing engineer, is best known for his work with INXS, Van Morrison, Bonnie Rait, Foy Vance & Ed Sheeran.

David’s recorded work has been praised by critics in both mainstream and street press, at home and overseas.

In many ways, David Hosking has done it tough. He has his reasons. With 8 albums out to date, the respect of his fans, the critics and his musical peers alike. All without a shred of compromise.

I really like this song David. Your lyrics are intriguing, your guitar playing is emotional and passionate as is your vocal delivery. Strong contender in the Awards voting to be sure! Very original song. Nice work.
Best of Luck........Pinedog
