My personal Music began in 2005. After a serious illness I was left with nothing to do and lots of time on my hands, so I bought my first keyboard and have never looked back. Prior to this happening I was and still am the main vocalist for Prog Rock Band 'Glacier' releasing the first album 2004, 2nd 2011 and the third sometime after 2011.
Dave Birdsall Music began in 2005. After a serious illness I was left with nothing to do and lots of time on my hands, so I bought my first keyboard and have never looked back.
I have been involved in music since before I realised what music was. I would go to people's houses at Christmas time and sing Christmas carols and get paid for singing. At first it was a cute way to get some pocket money but then I realised I actually enjoyed singing.
Later in my young life I would learn to play guitar and sing along, usually with John Denver songs, learn them and then play them. I also joined a rock group called Axis. It was a in your face band and I enjoyed it a lot but my voice did not fit into the rock style. I was not really hapy singing so I eventually left.
Whilst working in a bar to get extra money to go on holiday I was approached by John Youdale, founding member of Glacier, a progressive rock band and he asked me if I would like to come down and rehearse with them, so I did. that was the music that I had been waiting to fit into. Now it is many years later and many many gigs under my belt. I sort of know where I am in music now, which is not vocally orientated, which is kinda strange considering I have been singing all my life. I write music now as to what I like to hear myself.
The music is eclectic and encompasses many sounds and instruments. Today is where I am musically but tomorrow it will not be where I once was. I do not intend to make a mark on the universe, rather, I would like the universe, that power that sustains and creats us and also loves us make it's mark on me.
To that power I am so gratefull.
