Singer/Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist David Taylor is one of Australia’s most promising young artists and is fast becoming a household name.
At only 19 years of age, David has already released three back to back top 10 hits on the Australian Singer/Songwriter iTunes charts:
Pick Yourself Up (feat Ali Kerr) – September 2013
Take Pride (feat. Will Cole) – December 2014
Keep Falling – May 2016
Both Pick Yourself Up and Take Pride (produced by Cam Nacson) were written for mental health charity, KYDS (a free counselling service for kids), with David donating 100% of profits from these songs to KYDS. In recognition of David’s support of mental health, David was nominated for 2016 Australian Of The Year. David was then named the Young Australian Of The Year in 2017 by Ku-Ring-Gai Council
In May 2016 David released Keep Falling – produced, engineered, mixed, mastered and co-written by ARIA nominated producer Peter Holz. This charted at #8 on the Australian iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts after just 2 hours. Keep Falling was the lead single off David’s debut 10 track album Thoughts Then Reality which David and Peter worked on together for over two years.
On the back of these three back to back top 10 songs, David released his debut album Thoughts Then Reality in October 2016. This album charted in the top 5 on the Australian Singer/Songwriter iTunes charts, overtaking best selling international artists such as Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Passenger and many others. Track 2, This Too Shall Pass, was named as one of the Top 10 Contemporary Song Of The Year by the Australian Songwriting Association. David was also nominated twice in the International Songwriting Competition with Track 4, Rent, being nominated for Best Song in the Singer/Songwriter category and Track 3, Keep Falling, being nominated for Best Music Video.
In mid 2016, David set off on his first ever Australian tour which he co-headlined with 2016 The Voice AU semi-finalist Mitch Gardner, playing shows across the country to large crowds. This tour was on the back of his East Coast tour with talented songwriter Ollie Kirk as a co-headliner. Both these tours have helped David develop his unbelievably dedicated fan base, as well as allowing him to connect with fans in other states that he hadn’t performed in-front of previously.
David has performed on many stages all around the world, mainly in Australia and the USA, performing alongside global and international artists
