David St Paul

David first started singing at the age of eight when he used to sing hymns to two of his Great Aunts.

Nobody else new this, other than the aunts and they were glad to keep their secret to themselves as it gave them the monopoly on David's already good voice. By the time he reached 13, David had his first guitar and was beginning to perform songs mainly in the folk and country genre's. Also at this age David joined a number of different theatre groups, the best known of these, being The Brighton Theatre Group. David gained much experience with these groups and also played many leading roles in various productions.

At 16 David started to have his voice trained properly by a lady named Elizabeth Mackenzie. Elizabeth immediately recognised the potential in David's voice and set about training him for a classical career. Just before his 18th birthday, Elizabeth took David for an audition with "The George Mitchell Singers", they were the televised singers who used to black up and had the white lips, for those of you who may not remember. Sadly, wouldn't be "PC" these days. Anyway, David sang "Ol Man River" an ideal choice, considering the show format etc. David was offered a contract and was asked to show his "Equity Card" Don't have one, he said. Off to the Equity office they went." Can I have an Equity Membership please", "Where's your contract", they said. So no contract, no equity card, no equity card, no contract and that was the beginning and end of David's West End career and so began David's alternative career that has now spanned the best part of 40 years and indulged him in all the typical highs and lows of this precarious business.

Today, David is putting all that experience, knowledge and of course talent into a spectacular Neil Diamond Tribute that is a must for all Diamond fans and also those who have a general interest in the music of Neil Diamond. David worked very hard to put this show together and it has received much acclaim from those already fortunate enough to have experienced it. David has also produced two alternative tributes to swing and country music. David's Non Tribute act encompasses all these genre's along with many other popular hits over the decades.
