David Woodcock

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 two albums to date, the self-titled debut and Normal Life.

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.

The debut album included singles, ‘Same Things’, ‘Beggars Can’t Be Choosers’ and ‘Open Secret, ‘The Adventures Of You and Me’ all of which 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).

The second album Normal Life was released in 2019. Recorded and produced by David and Joe Lamb, over a two year period across various recording sessions. The results being a thirteen song selection. Kevin Feazey who had also mixed the debut album mixed Normal Life in London whilst undertaking some additional recording in Southend with David and Joe.

For fans of David’s debut there will be much to love and cherish with this new selection of songs. It sees him expand and develop the recording process and arrangements,  but the riotous spirit is still very much alive and kicking.  Turn it on, pour a drink and revel in the world of David Woodcock.
