David Barney

Bandstand Buskers David Barney - The Left Bank Village

Originated in the heart of the Midlands David Barney has pursued musical interests from a young age playing the keyboard, cello, recorder, guitar, harmonica and voice.   David discovered a passion for great music during adolescence singing along with the records of the greats such as Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Andy Williams, Chris De Burgh and Roy Orbison to name a few.  During his teenage years he was quick to get into singing and playing acoustic guitar enjoying a range of music from folk, country and rock, especially artistes such as Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and Bon Jovi.  During his late teens and early twenties David began to write and perform original songs entering competitions such as ‘Project Talent UK 2009’ securing a place with the final 60 contestants and performing for a packed venue in the heart of Birmingham’s Custard Factory.  During this time David realised the importance of developing himself as an artiste and pursued diplomas and a degree in Popular Music and Music Technology during which time he worked with a band in the genre of bluesy rock ‘n’ roll, as a lead vocalist and Front Man also contributing to write original songs for the band as well as performing covers.  After graduation David worked as a Vocal Entertainer circa 2014-2015 on local circuits across the midlands through music agents performing solo with the aid of backing tracks and a full PA system.  Following the success of live performance as a vocal entertainer, David focused his energies on instrumentation work on piano, guitar & voice continuing to hone his craft as player.  David has also played keyboard/piano with various bands independently as well as band ensembles during theatre shows and productions for Derby Theatre whilst studying a joint honours degree for Theatre Arts & Creative Writing.  David has a passion for improvising on the piano and continues to develop his skills as an all-round player, producer, arranger, and music enthusiast.  Alongside music David is also writing a dissertation focused around music performance for the award of ‘Master of Arts degree in Education.’
