David Matthews Pianist Face Picture

Welcome. I have been a Professional Piano Player for many years and discovered I could play The Piano by ear at the age of five.

By 17, I was fortunate enough to have become an accomplished Jazz player. I had some success behind me and appeared in various Piano and Jazz Clubs. These included Ronnie Scotts in London and Le Chat Qui Peche in Paris.

With the emergence of writers such as Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan and many other influential figures, I switched my style to pop. Shortly after, I began to write songs with immediate success. This lead to several commercial artists recording my work. These included The Troggs, Alan Price, The New Seekers, Matt Monro and Roger Cook (Blue Mink).

As an accomplished Professional Piano Player I have worked with many Artists and Producers. These include Sir George Martin, Rick Wakeman, Harry Stoneham, Larry Page, John Burgess, Les Reed, Roger Greenaway, Roger Cook and many others.

Alongside writing songs, I also began to build up a repertoire of songs by other composers. I drew the inspiration from the charts, film themes, rock, ballads, folk rock, World music and many other genres.

I now perform as a private pianist. This helps to add to the memories of special days by offering services to weddings, parties, restaurants and more. I aim to help people celebrate their special day at social events and functions.
