David John has something of a modern day fairytale to tell.
Born and raised just outside of Glasgow, singer-songwriter David had nearly given up on his dream of stardom, when a chance meeting on holiday changed his life forever. Spotted by an A&R whilst playing with his friend’s band, David was asked to send in a demo (duly recorded in his friend’s tiny garage in Ayrshire) and within days of sending it off, he was summoned to New York and immediately signed to Violator.
David’s feet haven’t touched the ground since. He’s been recording in New York and Atlanta (at music mogul DJ Eddie F’s studio) with legendary producers and writers such as Maddscientist (Leona Lewis, Mario, Nicole Sherzinger), Grammy award-winning Heavy D & The Boyz, Jayshawn Champion (R. Kelly, Faith Evans, Usher) and Corey Chorus Gibson (Babyface, P. Diddy, Rodney Jerkins). In the summer of 2010, 50 Cent was so impressed with David’s early demos, that he personally invited David to support him on his sold-out European stadium tour where he won fans across the media, including Perez Hilton.
With his attention now firmly focused on the UK, David’s debut single 'Mr. Fantastic' is a sure-fire smash that perfectly sums up his fairytale rise from obscurity to almost certain stardom.
"David John was absolutely great. The Club was heaving and everybody thoroughly enjoyed their evening."

"We have had David a few times at our Club and we were treated to another excellent performance from him. He was early and set up and gave the crowd a powerful first act and we wondered what batteries he was running on!!!! He had a great crack with the crowd and we will get him back again. Can recommend him for other clubs."
