In 2010, David set about writing and recording his second album. In an attempt to capture some of the infectious energy of his live shows, David invited his now firmly established band, The Pony Club, to join him in the studio. The Pony Club features the talents of Elly Lucas on fiddle, Julian Butt on accordion, Ben Dew on percussion and Sam Jordan on bass. The result is ‘There Are Birds in My Garden’. The album consists of traditional and self-penned material and will be released on 20th June by Hairpin Records. The 13 songs have an exuberant, contemporary edge, but they also reveal his maturity as a songwriter, as well as his developing interest in traditional songs and their arrangements.
p.s. David wants to celebrate his new album by playing in your garden. If you’re interested, can get a few family and friends together, can find £50 petrol money, and have a floor for the band to sleep on then drop the guys a line. The available dates are on the facebook event page here.

Well the good news for them is with his debut EP, recorded in the legendary Parr St Studios, set for release in summer 2011; they won’t have long to wait. As well as Ian’s trademark heart warming melodies and soul melting guitar he is joined by a full band, making this the perfect sound track to those barbeques in the sun and long summer nights.
