DAVID BARRATT

 I always had a dream to make music and took piano lessons from a young age. In the 1990's I began writing songs with a friend called Stephen Husbands. We formed a band called Diamond Sky and performed a few gigs locally. We both decided to have a break from the writing after a time but remain good friends. I then took singing lessons and achieved classical singing grade 5 in 2012 and have performed with local choirs.

More recently I began writing my own songs with the piano. I began posting some of these on Soundcloud which is how I met Ottfried Mietzke which leads us to present day and our first album together of which I am very proud.

In writing the songs I aim to project the lightness and darkness that occurs in all our lives.  My songs are inspired by life and some are very personal to me.




DAVID BARRATT

Ich hatte immer den Traum,Musik zu machen und nahm Piano Unterricht seit früher Jugend.In den 90ern begann ich Songs zu schreiben mit einem Freund names Stephen Husbands.We gründeten die Band Diamond Sky and hatten einige Clubkonzerte.Dann entschieden wir uns für eine Pause,blieben aber gute Freunde.Ich nahm dann Gesangsunterricht und erreichte den klassischen Gesangsgrad 5 im Jahre 2012.Es folgten Chorkonzerte.In neuerer Zeit entstanden

Kompositionen am Piano.Über Soundcloud kam ich in Kontakt mit Ottfried Mietzke,was uns zur Gegenwart und unserem ersten,gemeinsamen Album bringt,auf das ich sehr stolz bin.

Beim Schreiben der Songs versuche ich das Licht und das Dunkel abzubilden,das sich durch unser aller Leben zieht.Meine Stücke sind inspiriert vom Leben und manche sind sehr persönlich für mich.
