An Evening With David Garside In The Comfort Of Your Front Room.

The city of Birmingham has an incredible history when it comes to music, arguably only the second most prolific area behind Liverpool in terms of diverse genres and musicians and far and away the natural home of Heavy Metal.

Following on from the long list of notable musicians to come from the city and its W.H. Auden like leafy suburbs such as Jeff Lynne, Dexy’s, Magnum, Duran Duran comes David Garside. His last album, End of the Pier, was much acclaimed and the haunting nature of the Progressive undertones that he weaves impeccably throughout the entire recording are sublime and poetry driven.

David Garside seems to have always ploughed his own furrow when it comes to making and performing music, however he certainly follows in the footsteps of some of the great and musically innovative musicians that have hailed from the realms of Birmingham. In his latest album, the appealing and beguiling End Of The Pier, the emotion and haunting nature of David’s love of his favourite music and determination to stretch his and the audience’s attention have made for a sound that grabs the listener.
