Album Notes
David Hopkins was born in Dublin, Ireland. He was given the talent for writing incredible songs. Formerly with the Irish band Lir, LiR had a top 10 ten hit with David's song "In A Day" and #1 Alternative album "Magico Magico". They played sold out tours of the States - playing showcases with acts like Sinead O'Connor and Jeff Buckley and were signed in America to the independent label, What Are Records?.

David moved to San Francisco. He toured the U.S. in several different bands landing opening slots for legends The Who and Iggy Pop, among others.

Ready to further develop the sound he created with LiR into a more individual style, he released his first solo record, Here Comes the Bright Light which has garnered some pretty impressive reactions from the press. Here's what they are saying...

"a dauntingly magnificent album"

"David Hopkins music is like the friend you must have with you at all times. Never let it leave your side. You might be inclined to find that once you let it in, you'd be empty without it."

With its haunting melodies and introspective lyrics "Bright Light" makes the perfect musical companion for any fan of Radiohead, Nick Drake, Rufus Wainright, Coldplay or Belle & Sebastian while still retaining a unique style all its own.

Look out for a new album in the upcoming weeks. Here's what the press have to say about the Promo....

"David Hopkins follow up to Here Comes the Bright Light, is yet to be released, however One Dark Morning, promises the same magic found in his debut. Perhaps even more." - Plugged in Music

Look out for David at a venue near you.

Stunning quality!
This artist needs no help from anyone in expressing the magnitude of his music. It simply speaks for itself. To put it simply, this is one of the most talented artists I have heard in the last decade. What is so amazing is how superior his recent work is even to this fine album. The name of David Hopkins will be well known is a short period of time, and I will be proud to say that I heard him when...


thanks, david
love the music..especially the spelling song..so glad to have discovered it...like warm rain on a summer night


fantastic cd; can't believe this guy isnt better known. Well recommended to sit and chill out to, ideal listening


This CD is beautiful! The music is melodolic, the lyrics are intricate, and Hopkins's voice is gorgeous. I am very pleased that I bought the CD, even though I had heard very little of Hopkins's music beforehand.


Vocally superb, and a nice range of tracks
this guy has a great voice, if you like Nick Drake, Jeff Buckley, Damien Rice and Thom Yorke then you will like David. some really moving tracks, the vocals really capture you. There are a couple of folky tracks on there which were not my cup of tea but it might be yours. My personal favourite is, 'why are you leaving me behind?' The tracks are nice and punchy, not too drawn out.

abigail hopkins

the perfect music for nursing a wounded heart...
A passion runs through these songs with a profound understanding of the irony of the human condition...the tragic blended seamlessly with a razor sharp sense of humour and pathos.Perfect music for nursing a wounded heart with.

Ahmet Emanz

This CD will go down in History as a classic. I love it.

A Fan From Los Angeles

What a beautful record!
As a fan of David's for the last couple of years - i was eagerly awaiting this release. It's simply amazing. From the music to the CD artwork - this production is perfect. I can't wait to catch his next LA show!

Salvador Carrillo

One of the best Cd's I've heard all year!

Eamonn Dunphy

Truly inspirational
Hey Guy! Bought your CD after seeing you at THE PlOCK on your recent European tour. This is not just a good CD it's a fucking great CD. I just can't stop humming that Miserable Boy tune and as for LOOk AT ME Mr. R. BOY! Am I glad I'm not him. Such powerful emotion. Wow!
Can't wait for the sequel.
