New Album News

We've just announced David's new album project for 2020, entitled "Desert Songs."

The Psalms in the Bible seem to cover a far wider & deeper subject matter than our modern worship services tend to feature. Often the writer is declaring how hard life is, how desperate their situation, but ending on a note of praise, trust and hope - Psalm 31 for example.

Every month of 2020 David will release a song or instrumental in this tradition - music for people struggling, lamenting, waiting, but still hoping.

David's blues-flavoured E.P. "Old Friends" features David's brother, Woody Woodman on drums, bassist Frank Brierley and long-time collaborator, Andy Green on keyboards.

"The blues is the music that inspired me as a teenager to play guitar and it's in my musical DNA." explained David.  "I've wanted to record some of my stuff with a blues band feel for years. In fact one of the songs, Bloodshot Blues was last performed as a teenager with my brother on drums, so I'm really pleased we've finally managed to record it."

David's recent album "Looking Up" has received a great9/10 review by CrossRhythms. Click here to see the review in full.


David's latest album of congregational Praise and Worship songs "Looking Up" was released on Friday 17th July 2015. The album includes 12 new original songs written over the last 3 years and was recorded with Andy and Wendy Green at Cornerhouse Productions, Radcliffe, Manchester.

"The songs are all born out of times of personal and corporate worship and I really want people to be able to get closer to the Lord through them." said David. "There's a much fuller band sound on this album than I've had previously, but that's what the songs demanded."
