David shares his birth date,13th March, with one of his heroes.. Neil Sedaka (though David is some few years younger!).. David wrote his first song aged thirteen, when his best pal Clive urged him to come up with some lyrics to a tune he kept humming so they could impress famous 60s disc jockey Alan (fluff) Freeman whose car they used to clean.

In 1970, David met Alec Gould and they wrote three songs for Lois Lane out of the Caravelles. Through Alec, David met Bob Jackson and David wrote great lyrics to Bobs catchy tunes.. one of which The New Seekers were about to release just before they spilt up in 1977. Having been encouraged by the crazy genius Vivian Stanshall,David was inspired to compose his own music. David was bought up in North West London, and Hampstead Heath was where he often jumped out of his pram; Mixing with the likes of the sultry Anne Robinson and Peter Cook two famous Hampsteadites of the time was very inspiring to his inner child.. working with Ray Davies and Barry Mason encouraged David to become Geezer. Since the early noughties, David has also written some reggae style songs with Delroy Pinnock which hopefully will soon be released ,and also three great songs with Gill Warren which appear on his current album.

All-in-all, a career of stopps and starts - he is currently writing a musical and is also working on promoting a childrens horror story set to music.

Throughout the years David has worked in many professions as well as the music business. Starting off with a very brief smell (sic) in the army in 1967 he went on to spend many minutes in various jobs - advertising agencies, Covent Garden and Smithfield markets and the London Ambulance Service.

To coin a Manfred Mann phrase:Davey's on the road again
