David Cummins is a alternative-rock singer-songwriter 40 years in the making. Inspired by iconic musical storytellers like James Taylor and Harvey Andrews and rock giants Pink Floyd, David started performing music in the late 70’s and early 80’s, touring around the UK both solo and with a band. Upon completing university, he shifted his focus to his creative design business, causing his musical career to fall into the background. In 2017, after the death of his partner, David picked up his guitar and started writing songs again. Music was his emotional outlet - a reflection of his feelings and a way to come to terms with the passing of a loved one. These sessions resulted in a collection of songs telling the stories of his life: the things he’s done, the people he loves or has loved, and the political uncertainty of the modern world. He hopes that listeners can relate to the emotions and stories in his songs, helping them make it through the grieving process. A creative in every sense of the word, David is also a designer and photographer, and has worked in these industries for 30 years. His passion for music started at the age of 11, when he got his very first electric guitar. He is now a multi-instrumentalist, playing the keyboard, bass and guitar on his songs. David has collaborated with lead guitarist Calum Robertson of The Pink Floyd Show UK, one of the top Pink Floyd tribute acts in the world, on some of his new material.
