David Ireland began performing in the 1960s. From that time he toured constantly throughout Europe, working solo and with his band.
A well-known figure on the Dutch music scene in the 70s and 80s, David worked with artists as diverse as B.B. KIng, Yes, Sparks, Sonja Kristina, Kayak, Leonie Janssen, Frans Ehlhart, Herman Van Veen, Boudewijn de Groot and many others.
David has remained fresh and involved with current music. As he tells us, '...the musicians on the new album are amazingly talented. The energy they create and the spontaneity of their musicianship is astounding. I felt truly privileged to share my music with them'.
A Twist Of Time was recorded in the Cotswolds between April and July. The album features fourteen tracks recorded with the cream of local musicians.
The songs were written while the album was taking shape in the studio. There is a spontaneous and almost organic feel to the tracks. Subject matter is as diverse as warfare, 911, global recession and the transience of life. There are also a couple of love songs in there too!
David is a broadcaster, writer and musician. He has a degree in fashion and textiles and is co-owner of a small vintage shop in the Cotswolds called Time After Time.
