About

David has loved both electronic and classical music from an early age. Earliest electronic influences were Jean Michel-Jarre, Ultravox and Gary Numan and, in the classical realm, Aaron Copland, Erik Satie and the Baroque composers, which he originally listened to during the early 80's. David experienced disenchantment with the later 80s' music, but found a solution to this by way of a retrospective appreciation of the music of Tangerine Dream and Depeche Mode, along with, of course, the refuge of the music of his classical heroes. These proved to be as influential then as earlier.

With the rise of guitar-based music in the mainstream, David felt obliged to experiment with this genre; his main influences during this time being the Pixies. However, it was only with the emergence of trance, and hence his awareness both of electronic dance music and of classical progressions, that David returned to those roots and started upon his own attempts within this genre. Dance music remains David's passion, and, under the act name 'Sojourner', he has now achieved a quality of production in his work, informed by his love of classical music, which rivals the works of today's better known artists. David's classically-based works show the same respect for genre, the same courage to innovate, and the same production values.

David has lived in Saint Albans, Hertfordshire with his wife Vicky since 2007.
