Having got into music late in the day, David Lawton started to devise works in his teenage years at his home in Devon. He experimented with his guitar, using his voice a powerful accompaniment to his acoustic guitar.

David’s music is essentially acoustic, with all songs designed to play with an acoustic guitar. Though his influences are broad, he learned to consume genres intensely.


Nick Drake, Sufjan Stevens, Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, Billy Joel, Belle and Sebastian, Van Morrison, the Smiths, Lou Reed, Alex G, Mac Demarco, Jeff Buckley, Sam Cooke, Chet Baker, and Elliot Smith.
