"A great little pop record" Steve Lamacq, BBC 6music

"The best 45 I've heard from a new artist in 2013; pity you're reading this in '14. The geezer's a star" IAN MCCANN, RECORD COLLECTOR

"Essex has a bit of form when it comes to delivering maverick pop geniuses with a gift for mixing a smidgeon of music hall with a dash of 60s pop and creating inspired, but intelligent tunes"
Brandish.TV

"Single of the summer? Well for me that was David Woodcock’s breezy pop gem Same Things, when the Southender re-ignited Estuary Pop with a whirling piano based ditty that landed somewhere in between Ian Dury and the lighter side of Brit Pop" POPJUNKIE

BIOGRAPHY

David Woodcock is a singer-songwriter based in his hometown of Southend-on-Sea. A pianist and prolific writer, with a strong local following, he has been building up a solid songbook of sharp lyrics and great melodies that have been distilled into his self-titled debut album, set for release this August available for pre-order now.

His self-titled album includes the singles, ‘Same Things’, ‘Beggars Can’t Be Choosers’ and 'Open, both of which have had strong radio support from key UK tastemakers, Steve Lamacq – "A great little pop record" – (BBC 6 Music), John Kennedy (Xfm X-posure Hot One) and Gary Crowley (BBC London + Amazing Radio).

David's songs are steeped in the classic British song writing tradition epitomised by the likes of Ray Davies, Steve Harley and Ian Dury. Lyrics filled with humour, pathos, wry observations and a riotous energy – in David’s music there’s certainly an air of Ian Hunter rockin’ it up with Mott The Hoople, Vivian Stanshall as a drunken Harry Nilsson, Pete Doherty with a clean bill of health or Damon Albarn in young, cocky scamp mode. Live, David works the room to the max. He gives us tales of lost love, lust, jealousy, memories, regrets and of living life to its messy limits and all the consequences that entails.

On record the energy remains. Turn it on, pour a drink and revel in the world of David Woodcock!
